Hungarian winemaker on deathbed
Draws sons close

Father, do you have anything to tell use before you pass
Yes, I wish to tell you the secret to making the wine
What is the secret
Wine can be made from anything
Even grapes

My grandfather thought this was funny.

I don't speak Hungarian but I get a sense of some sort of subtext. I'm sure it hilarious. Like "Fishing with John".

The Fish Whisperer.

Great stuff. But that's a lot of work to catch a stinking carp. Hardly worth the effort.

How to prepare a carp:

Nail the carp to a board. Season liberally. Prop the board next to a hot campfire. Cook until crispy. Remove fish from board. Throw away the carp. Eat the board.

I like this one. This bit from Orson Welles' F for Fake is similarly awesome.

"The omelet, you know that, don't you? Sure. It's a classic. An omelet, it's in our Hungarian cookbook. 'To make an omelet,' it says, 'first, steal an egg.'"

In all seriousness, George Lang's The Cuisine of Hungary is probably the most interesting book about food I have ever read, containing not only an incredible historical picture of the cuisine but an extensive selection of amazing recipes.

That's an old logo for the channel Filmmúzeum (even without knowing a word of Hungarian you can probably guess what sorts of things they aired). When it was pointed out where they lifted it from, they changed it to this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/vincevarga/3387190274/

That is Hungarian as hell. Very cool. Valóságos manufaktura a dzsungelben. ("Real manufacturing in the jungle," about the lead weights.)

Surely that recipe is for poached eggs.
