Pécs is one of Hungary’s most beautiful cities—a fertile and diverse Mediterranean municipality visited by thousands of tourists every year for its vibrant university town atmosphere, stunning panoramic views of the Mecsek, and its architectural history.

VIDEO: Sunday lunch for those in need—It’s never too late to join in!

Eight years ago, a few enthusiastic friends started Heti Betevő (Weekly Meal—the Transl.). They don’t stop at the occasional food distribution, as every Sunday, they host people in need in Budapest and several country towns. There is a tremendous amount of logistics and organizational work behind this noble cause, with every helper doing their part to ensure that no one has to miss out on the joy of a Sunday lunch in the form of a restaurant-quality meal and other food donations. It’s never too late to get involved in this volunteer initiative. They are looking for help from kitchens, restaurants, bakeries, and volunteers.


What is millet good for?—Sweet and savory variations on a versatile ingredient

Millet is not only a great side dish, but can also be used in countless other ways in the kitchen.

Gábor Karalyos demonstrates how millet can be used to make sweet and savory meals, including millet patties, and millet dumplings, a vegan alternative to the well-known cottage cheese dumplings.
