My Mum used to say she didn't really like to cook... but that she liked to eat well!

She really did have a point... A good eater does make a good cook!

Her pastries & cakes were definitely something special.

European Family

Being of central European heritage, my family is mostly of Hungarian and Germanic descent on my mother's side and Hungarian and perhaps Polish and even Croation (?) on my father's side.
Mum and Dad's parents and grandparents all lived in and around Titel in Serbia, and eventually some moved away to other towns and even other countries such as Hungary, Germany, Switzerland, the US and Australia.

For now I will mainly focus on exploring history and recipes from the family that I was born into and know. 

Mum's side still mainly live in the village of Titel. While Dad's side live in the larger town of Temerin.

In the 10th century, the area was conquered by the Kingdom of Hungary, which ruled over it until 1526. The town was first mentioned under name Titel in 1077. Between 1077 and 1095 the Catholic monastery was founded in the town... (Source: Wikipedia 2016,
