Just had Sarma (cabbage rolls of former Yugoslavia) on Sunday at grandson's 3rd birthday-so yummy. SIL's mom, Milka makes "sour heads"-fermented cabbage heads, and then places the rolls on a bed of homemade sauerkraut. The double smoked bacon gives awesome flavour. She uses ground beef and pork, rice, etc. in therolls. LOVE THEM! I want to learn to make these from here as they are very special. Milka was a chef in Croatia for 17 years and in Kosovo for 7 years at large hotels. In Kosovo she was the head chef at the hotel where the UN team stayed, and they sponsored her and our son-in-law, Sejo to come to the US. Is your recipe Hungarian? Shanti/Mary-Anne

i'm sure the roots of the recipe came from hungary, but this particular recipe came from belfast ireland, being irish i'm trying to get in touch my ancestry and so i've been trying alot of the food from my heritage. and it's been delicious. and some irish recipes posted are family recipes. sarma does sound good i've got a little german ancestry as well but mostly irish. that's probably why i like cabbage so much lol. interesting story mary ann hungarian food is very good too. i just recently took my family to the oktoberfest in tulsa which is a german festival to celebrate the coming of the fall and it was a great experience my family didn't care for the german food but i did. and of course being a german festival there was a ton of beer from all over.

When we visited Budapest a few years back we shopped the big market and picked up some awesome paprika. Good paprika makes such a difference! I have become very fond of using half sweet and half hot smoked paprika in pots of beans along with Schaller and Webber Double Smoked German Bacon. These are tricks Milka does! Steve is part Irish also. VBG There are some great recipes like soda bread and calcanon, not to mention Guiness of course. I have only been to Ireland once when I was 18. Beautiful country.
