Dishes – business cards of Uzhgorod

In Uzhgorod restaurants there are different variations of the same recipes. Be sure to try and find your favorite!

  • Bograch is the most famous dish of Transcarpathia. This is a Hungarian shepherd’s goulash in a cauldron. It consists of several types of meat, vegetables and spices, served in black bread. Hearty, real bograch is cooked only here.
  • Banosh and tokan are Ukrainian corn porridges. The first is prepared on cream, and the second on water. Served with cracklings, mushrooms and homemade sheep cheese. The most exotic option is cooking on an open fire, as in the old days.
  • Hombovtsi is a local dessert. These are cheese balls filled with cheese, fruit and other sweets. They are sprinkled with sweet corn crumbs, their taste is difficult to compare with anything. It is soft and creamy with fresh fruit notes.

Bograch

The most popular hot meat dish is bograch, which Hungarians have been cooking since the time of crossing the Carpathians to Pannonia. Bograch – (first course) is a thick mixture of meat, mushrooms, onions, peppers, garlic and other ingredients. It is cooked in a cauldron on an open fire (even the name indicates this: in Hungarian “cauldron” – “bogracs”). According to legend, the Hungarians heavily peppered their dishes during the Turkish wars so that enemies could not eat what was cooked. Turks have not threatened the peace of Transcarpathians for a long time, and the tradition of adding a lot of pepper to food has remained.

Banush

The main dishes of both Latin American and Alpine Indians and Transcarpathian highlanders are made from beans, potatoes, corn, cheese and meat. Yes, Hutsuls cook banush porridge from corn, and Italians cook polenta. There are, of course, slight differences in recipes, but their main feature is the ease of preparation and preservation required for long-term storage of the small set of products that can be obtained in harsh mountain climates. For this purpose, for example, the Swiss dry meat and Transcarpathians smoke.

Frogs' legs

The village of Turia Remeta is famous for its French culinary traditions. The village café serves frog legs and turtle soup. The fact is that in the first half of the XIX century in the village were captured French soldiers of Napoleon’s army. Most of them were amazed by the beauty of the Carpathians and our girls started families here and stayed in Transcarpathia forever.

We have named only a few dishes, but in local cafes you will find others: dumplings, perkelt, rokot-krumpli. Recipes are often unique and stored by the owners of institutions, passed down through the generations.
Another local pride is wine and cognac. The fruits are harvested in local vineyards. Local varieties are soft, mostly dessert. Autumn is the season of grape harvest, come here at this time for young wines, or for the celebration of young wine.

Transcarpathian wines

Transcarpathian unique climate contributed to the ancient masters of the vine. In Transcarpathia, with its warm sunny summers, mild winters, fertile soil, relief, everything seems to be deliberately created for planting vines.

Transcarpathian cognacs

Transcarpathian vintage cognacs “Tisa”, “Uzhhorod” and “Karpaty” are known all over the world. Ordinary cognacs “Three Stars”, “Five Stars”, “Transcarpathian”, “Nevytsky Castle” and “Beskydy” are equally popular. Their production is a fairly young branch of winemaking in Transcarpathia. It was founded in 1959 in the village of Velyki Lazy, Uzhhorod district, where the first batch of cognac alcohol was poured into oak barrels.
