Traditional Hungarian Cuisine – wedding foods of Ecser. The town of Ecser is a few kilometers east of Budapest. It is famous in our circles for the choreography „Ecser Wedding” created by Rábai Miklós in 1951 for the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble. The town of Ecser had specific and colourful wedding customs that can be traced back to the Slovaks that settled there following the Turkish occupation. Recipes here are: chicken paprika stew with special wedding noodles, stuffed chicken, and the kalács or celebrational wedding raisin bread. By Juhász Katalin.
