Bakonybel trip 4/06 #hungary

rroth@...
 

Greetings to all!

After lurking here for a few years, I may be able to contribute
something. In April 2006 our family will be briefly in Bakonybel,
traveling with my daughter's youth chorale.

There will not be much time and I dont speak the language, but if
anyone has something basic to check there, I can try.

Bakonybel is N. of Lake Balaton. WOWW lists it as 104 km NE of=20
Nagykanizsa,=A0coordinates 47 deg.=A015 min by 17 deg 44 min. It gives =
the=20
prewar Jewish population as 12, so I guess this is a long shot, but you
never know.

---
PS. For context, I checked Nagykanizsa in WOWW as well. Its population

was 2,838, so more promising, but it may be hard to locate, being found
934 km W of Nagykanizsa.=94 This must be in the Moebius strip section
of

(Guess it's a good thing I held onto the first edition. The old WOWW

has Bakonybel 107 km WSW of Budapest, and Nagykanizsa 202 km SW of
Budapest. I will send a note to Avotaynu.)

Re: *re: Hungarian Latkes #hungary

Daniela <daniela@...>
 

Lynn,
Exactly my experience: In Navaho reservation I ate what they called "Indian
bread" which is langos, except they eat it with honey. That was strange to
me.Langos is definitely as was described here--served with garlic paste (or
garlic oil) on top and salt.
I come >from Slovakia, and the only latkes I ever had were made out of raw
ground potatoes with ground onion, salt, maybe garlic, flour, eggs, and a
little bit of carraway seeds. Fried and served with sour cream.
I think this list is becoming culinary festival, which is kind of nice since
we are all probably thinking about those delicious unhealthy foods that we
eat without feeling bad about it. Thanks for recipe links.
Very happy Chanukah!

No, langos is a totally different food. They are frybread. Latkes are
potato pancakes. Both, however, are deep fried in oil, so either COULD BE
a
Chanukah tradition, where the point is eating things fried in oil. But
latkes are the Chanukah tradition all over eastern Europe, whereas
Sephardim
make suganiot (doughnuts).

I was delightfully surprised when I was in Hungary to hear about, see and
then eat langos--because I live among Tohono O'Odham (Native Americans)
who
make frybread that is just like langos!

I'm not quite sure if "latkes" and the Hungarian "langos" are the same
cookings. In my family, both >from Kosice and Budapest, the custom was to
eat
"langos" with garlic and butter. This was considered a winter delicacy, to
be eaten near a burning stove. I never knew it to be served "sweat".

LATKES #hungary

Eva Blanket
 

Dear All,

Just to clarify things....

* LATKES are basically grated/shredded fresh potatoes with a few other
ingredients that are fried in oil ie. generally savoury. There is a
variation that uses leftover cooked mashed potatoes too.

* FANK or Hungarian donuts are a sweet yeast/flour batter fried in oil
and sprinkled with dusting sugar ie.sweet. Many variations are
possible, the most common ones being....adding jam in the middle or
adding a slice of green apple in centre.

* LANGOS is more like a pizza base dough ie. more breadlike (although
smaller in diameter) that is fried and is best with garlic sprinkled
on it ie. savoury.

Now I just wish my mother was here to bake all these lovely things!!!

Dear Nick and others,

There was an article that Lloyd Gartner wrote in Jewish Social
Studies "Notes on the Statistics of Jewish Immigration to England
(Vol xxii, #2, April 1960). Although Gartner was referring to
statistics, one could also argue that if there were also no lists of
names then statistical analyses could not be made.

He wrote in part: "...The starting point in governmental figures is
the Act of 1836 (6 Wm. IV, c. 11) which required the master of every
ship arriving in England >from abroad to submit a list of aliens on
board. By the 1850s and 1860s the statute had fallen into disuse
outside the Port of London and it was again brought into nationwide
enforcement in May, 1890..."

So it begs the question if the London figures still exist, where are
they. However, if they are only statistics, then they won't really
answer Nick's question.

Sincerely,
