  2. 2 Hungarian lecsó

    Hungary is a country rich in flavour. Most of its national dishes are also very easy to prepare.

  3. 3 Farmhouse fry-up

    Incredibly easy and fast to prepare, this fry-up uses only a few ingredients. Worry not, though - the flavour is not compromised. It's still super delicious! Best part? You can easily add your own products to make this fry-up extra special. Basically, whatever you have left in the fridge can go in. If you prefer, you can use cabbage, kale, or spinach instead of chard. Let your creativity lose.
