Helen's Hungarian Heritage Recipes
Chef Ilona Szabo Reveals The Secrets of Hungarian Cooking
Thursday, August 27, 2009
Every once in a while, someone does something that overwhelmes you, makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside and promotes the good you are trying to share.
Today is one of those moments. One my distributors for my Helen's Hungarian Heritage Recipes cookbook, shared that she wanted to frame a lovely Hungarian Kitchen Blessing poem. She was going to tear the poem right out of the book and have it professionally framed. Yikes! Well - sir - I came to the rescue and worked with the gallery to have it done up professionally. The results - an incredibly lovely wedding shower gift and a wedding anniversary gift too.
I will share this poem in graphic format (see above) in Hungarian and in English. (translation below)
The lady that shared this story commented, that if we could just all abide by this poem - the Faith, Hope and Charity rule, we would be at peace with the world. How lovely and how true!
Hungarian House Blessing
Where there is Faith, There is Love. Where there is Love, There is Peace. Where there is Peace, There is God. Where there is God, There is no Need.
