Today I’m so honored to introduce you to a new friend of mine, Dora Hurley, as she tells us about a very cheap, very simple but very delicious Hungarian “Friday Meal” which served both religious and practical purposes.
I also talk to Dora about her migration to Ireland from Hungary and the contrast between living and eating on “the continent”, as Dora calls it, and a tiny island nation, where she and her husband raise their 3 boys.
- Religious and practical reasons for this “Friday meal”
- Food deprivation, food security, and food as currency
- A kitchen nook the size of an Ikea desk
- THE Schnapps
- How Dora’s grandmother worked 2 jobs and still made her feel like the center of her world
- Quitting an advertising job to waitress in Ireland
- Life and food on “The Continent” vs. Life and food on the island of Ireland
- Becoming a goal crusher
