When an 85 year old seasoned chef (Ilona Szabo) and her daughter (Clara M. Czegney) and her graphic artist photographer (Evangeline Mackell) hit the list - listen up!

The book is informative, fun and sensibly priced. A great buy in my books! --Dr. Gordon M. Balfour, BusMgr-Writer-Gideons International In Canada, 2006

Easy for some, with cookbooks and family recipes for quick reference, not a problem for most of us. Imagine, however, that the creative chef and her secret recipes has most ingredients and methods for preparation stored in her head, with only bits of information jotted down on scraps of paper and the backs of envelopes, sometimes in Hungarian, or Swedish, German, or even Russian. --Kit McDermott, Senior Editior, Lifestyles, Brantford Expositor - Feb, 2006
