Dinner Demo with Chef Jeremy Salamon at the Hungarian Library in NYC

Don't miss this amazing culinary event! Space is limited so apply as soon as you can.

On Tuesday, March 5th 2019, ReConnect Hungary will be partnering with Executive Chef Jeremy Salamon of the The Eddy in New York City’s East Village to present a dinner demo at the Hungarian Library.

DATE: MARCH 5, 2019


ReConnect Hungary, the Hungarian Birthright Program will welcome Chef at the Hungarian Library on the Upper East Side in NYC, where he plans to dazzle the guests by demonstrating a few of his signature Hungarian dishes.

The talented young chef Salamon grew up eating traditional Hungarian dishes like chicken paprikas with nokedli and stuffed cabbage because he has Hungarian roots. In 2017 he spent some time touring different regions in Hungary learning preservation techniques for sausage, charcuterie and fruit and now Chef wants to be the “Ambassador for Hungarian Cuisine” in New York.

The evening will start at 7 pm. The proceeds will go toward ReConnect Hungary’s Scholarship Program.

To inquire about tickets for the dinner call Gabi Vajtay, Program Manager at 732-236-5534 or send a message to us.

My whole life I felt like we were missing pieces to our Hungarian heritage. The only things passed down through the generations were the food and some family stories. After this trip, I feel like I got to fill in those gaps. I have a better sense of what it means to be Hungarian-American and I feel a stronger connection to my great grandfather.

I got a more thorough experience of Hungarian culture than if I would have traveled by myself...
