Cabbage casserole

by | Feb 10, 2023 | Vegetable dishes

The following recipe of cabbage casserole was inspired by Transylvanian Feast, a cookbook written by Pál Kövi. He wasn’t even Transylvanian – he was born in Balassagyarmat, Hungary in 1924 -, but he had close ties to it, as he graduated from the University of Transylvania.

Pál Kövi was a former owner and director of the Four Seasons restaurant and a major figure on the New York restaurant scene for almost four decades. At the peak of his career he got hooked on the Transylvanian cuisine, and decided to collect the last Hungarian, Armanian, Jewish and Saxon recipes from Transylvania in order to prevent them from fading into oblivion.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
