Clara Margaret Czegeny, born in Montreal and grew up in a traditionally
Hungarian home with all the classic meals being prepared on a daily basis. Clara has
always loved to cook and she does that like everything else with flair, gusto,
passion and of course - a huge clatter and dozens of bowls, spoons and linen tea

Of the three sisters, Clara stayed closest to her Hungarian heritage of cooking.
Compiling this cookbook; recipes that otherwise would have been lost in their
mother's memories, has truly been a labor of love. Clara creatively weaves her own
perspective and personal philosophy of life and observations into this book. The
humorous anecdotes before her recipes makes them easy to prepare and her book
especially enjoyable to read.

Clara incorporates her childhood memories and recollections of how she
remembers life in our home. Her teaching background greatly influenced her
writing style and her helpful nature flows through with an abundance of hints.
Clara is a definitely a twist on the movie - Good Cook, Likes Music_2005 she is a
Great Musician, Loves to Cook_2006. We've all managed to inherit the love of
cooking and good food and to create in the kitchen from our mom, but to have
inherited her amazing natural gift in the kitchen would have been indeed a great
honor. Again...Congratulations to Clara for such a timeless piece, a legacy of
Helen's Cooking Treasures!
