Welcome! Isten Hozott!
November 2015 Newsletter

Fall is one of my favorite times of year and the changing leaves are a special treat now that we live in New York. After growing up in northeast Ohio where Fall is incredibly beautiful, I spent 20+ years in places where the vibrant oranges and reds of the season were very rare to see. I am thankful to be soaking up the beauty in this region of the country!

We have a number of items on special through MONDAY, NOVEMBER 16th! Please click on this link to be sure to take advantage of these deals!

The catalogs have been delivered to the post office but I do not know how long it will take them to reach you. If you would like an electronic copy of the catalog, please send an email to with PDF in the subject line and I will be happy to email one to you! I love holding a catalog in my hands but I appreciate that a PDF can be increased in size and can be shared with others more easily through email. Both have their advantages, but, if you want to see the catalog sooner, a PDF is definitely the way to go! If you end up with two copies of the catalog in your mailbox, feel free to share one with a fellow Hungarian! Sadly, you will notice a few mistakes in the printed version, as all of our edits were not corrected.

Be sure to let us know as early as possible if you would like to order, pogácsa (with bacon cracklings), walnut and poppyseed pozsonyi kifli or walnut and poppyseed rolls. We will not be posting the pozsonyi kifli or pogácsa on the website so you need to email me ( or call (1-800-786-7851) with your order and contact information. Click here to order either the walnut or poppyseed beigli! When you order 5 or more there is a discount of $3 per roll! These freeze well…if they last that long!
