Item Description...
Despite its vast repertoire, variety, and recipes bursting with flavor, Hungarian cuisine is one of the most underappreciated and unknown European cuisines. There are few Hungarian restaurants outside the country so those who are interested in discovering Hungarian cuisine (and any food lover should be!) must go to Hungary to sample everything firsthand, prepared with real Hungarian ingredients–now by a new generation of talented chefs and winemakers. Despite the fact that last year more foreign tourists visited the city than ever before (36.6 million), there are still no guidebooks written in English focusing on Budapest restaurants and Hungarian food. Carolyn Bánfalvi has written the first culinary guide to Budapest, Food Wine Budapest. This book is a practical guide that contains the vocabulary you'll need (one obstacle to discovering Hungarian food and wine is the difficult Magyar language); dozens of restaurant, café, and shop reviews; and descriptions of Hungarian dishes and wines. The Hungarian wine industry is young, dynamic, and relatively little known outside of the country, which makes sampling its wines deliciously adventurous. The book will ensure that readers have memorable eating and drinking experiences. Throughout Food Wine Budapest there are also sidebars providing local color and in-depth information.
"The indispensable guide [to Budapest] is Carolyn Bánfalvi's Food Wine Budapest, with attractive photos by George Konkoly-Thege." -CondéNast Traveler

"Food Wine Budapest: A Terroir Guide, by Carolyn Banfalvi, concentrates on gastronomic pleasures. It is, quite simply, the best guide available today to the culinary renaissance of the city and region in the post-communist era. Banfalvi profiles some of the best restaurants and wine bars in Budapest, but also includes cafes, pastry shops, specialty food shops and markets, as well as the traditions behind their offerings. Helpfully, she includes extensive translations for the names of wines, foods and cooking methods as well. This is the first book in a new series called Terroir Guides, which promises to explore cities or regions, focusing on the way local influences are reflected in food and wine. The Budapest guide sets a high standard for those that follow." —Laszlo Buhasz, The Globe and Mail

"Getting to the heart of regional cuisine can be a tall order, but The Terroir Guides ably examine the interplay between markets, local food artisans, winemakers, and chefs on a town-by-town basis, taking the reader from field to plate and making a great companion for any food-obsessed tourist...packed with local history, food lore, and useful translations." --Sherman's Travel

"I love The Terroir Guides. They give me everything I want. They're a tactile pleasure, compact, meaty. They're lovely to look at, elegantly laid out, mutedly and tastefully colored...positively overflowing with the Who, What, Where and How even an intrepidly independent traveler should know...The Little Bookroom has a knack for putting guidebooks into print that are as useful as they are beautiful." --Wine News

"A travel guide worthy of the city.You can easily kill a week in Budapest, but until now, good food guides written in English about the area were scarce. Carolyn Banfalvi's new book, Food Wine Budapest, is part of the beautiful Terroir Guides series, and fills the gap nicely. It has neighborhood guides, a primer on Tokaji wine, tons of good restaurant recommendations, and pretty pictures." -CHOW.com

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good, but could improve  Aug 14, 2008
I bought this book for an upcoming trip to Budapest, because I am a foodie and I want to know where to go!

This book has two major drawbacks, which are easily addressed in subsequent editions.

First, there are no maps of any kind anywhere in the book. So unless you know Budapest very very well, you will be lost and have no idea where these yummy restaurants are. I had to map them on Tripadvisor (which also has plentiful restaurant reviews by the way...) just to see what neighborhoods they are in, and how far away they are from our hotel, important sights etc. This is kind of a pain!

Second, the book is quite heavy! It is a beautiful book- thick, glossy paper, nice fonts and typesets etc, but it weighs a ton! NOT ideal for carting around Budapest- its a veritable Hungarian food encyclopedia!!!

I recommend buying this book if you are a diehard foodie and want to know where the good meals are in Budapest. It would be especially good for someone staying in Budapest for an extended period of time (expats, for example). She has great descriptions and photos of the restaurants, and I believe she does a thorough job of combing the entire city for the best of the best.
If however, you are only going to be in Budapest for a few days, I do not recommend this book. Get a smaller Budapest book, and do a bit of restaurant research online (Tripadvisor or chew.hu are both good Budapest food resources) and bring a notebook with the names and addresses of the restaurants you really want to try. Or better yet, buy a map and mark the restaurants on it!

I'm glad I bought this book, but I wish it had maps. I also wish it wasn't such a tome! Lighter paper and narrower page margins would have made for a more portable book. Maybe the author will alter it for the next edition.
