Saturday, June 8, 2019 9:30 a.m.- 2 p.m. A Taste of Hungary: Traditional Hungarian Food Tasting, Tour of American Hungarian Foundation and Buccleuch Mansion, New Brunswick, N.J.
Local food historian and longtime HFSDV member Susan Luczu, will lead us on a tour of Hungarian culture and foodways. We will start by exploring the treasures of the American Hungarian Foundation by its executive director, then learn more about the food heritage of Hungary and enjoy a taste of traditional Hungarian foods. The luncheon will be followed by a tour of nearby Buccleuch Mansion, a recently restored Georgian home with a commanding view of the Raritan River Valley.
Susan has experience with a variety of historical groups, including HFSDV, the Daughters of the Revolution, East Brunswick Museum, 4th NJ Civil War Reenactment Unit, and the Freehold Twp. Heritage Society. She has been involved with open-hearth cooking demonstrations as well as working with her DAR Jersey Blue chapter’s project as stewards of the lovely Georgian Mansion Buccleuch. Both Americans & British lived there. The lovely mansion saw such guests as George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, John Hancock & General Kosciusko. Many generations have lived in this lovely home and the 16 rooms hold artifacts & furnishings reflecting the various periods of those lives: colonial, federal and Victorian. The tour of the museum of the American Hungarian Foundation will include paintings, furniture & artifacts embellished with beautiful folk art found in older Hungarian homes. The Museum shop also has pieces of art & great cookbooks. (Limited number of attendees, so please register promptly).
