Braided Challah [Fonott Kalács]

Kalács or challah reminds me for my childhood. I used to eat this type of bread for breakfast spread with jam or honey. This version is not so sweet as we had it at home, but just as good. I’ve found this recipe on Youtube where also explains a simple braiding technique for it.

Elderflower Cordial

The elderflower bloom is in its’ full swing.  If you haven’t done it yet, is still a bit of time to collect some flowers for this delicious home made cordial. For me this is the perfect summer drink.

This recipe comes from my sister-in-law’s grandma, who has a pair of magical hands when it comes to cooking or preserving food.
