Presentation, food sampling, book signing

Do you remember Café Budapest, the restaurant in The Copley Square Hotel?  Its departure from the Boston culinary scene has left a void that is still felt today.  Join Eva Bonis, Hungarian cookbook writer as she shares her love of Hungarian cuisine by preparing healthier, less heavy, traditional Hungarian foods.  Join Eva at Wellesley Books for a sampling of Hungarian food and stories about how the Hungarian palate has changed since the fall of Communism.


Goulash, the most recognized of Hungarian dishes, traditionally defined Hungarian cuisine: heavy sauce of paprika, prime pieces of beef or chicken and smothered in strong onions and peppers.  But political changes have lead to a country now open to the flavors and ideas of other nations.  In Eva’s book, she will share with you the variations of traditional Hungarian cooking that are enjoyed in Hungary today.  Also, Eva will share where the delicious ingredients may be purchased in the Boston area.


Inspired by her mother’s tried and true recipes while influenced by the changes within her country, Hungarian cookbook writer Eva Bonis has lived in The United States for decades.  Putting to rest the notion that Hungarian cooking is all about paprika-spiced heavy food, Eva has revised the traditional recipes to create a healthier version.  Eva now lives in Chestnut Hill Brookline, and has two children and two grandchildren.
