Hungarian Hortobágyi palacsinta (meat-filled crepes)

with Dénes Takácsy

Thursday, February 18: 7–8:30pm EST

Online via Zoom—to benefit the Folk Arts Center of New England

Join Dénes Takácsy, leader of the Forgás Hungarian Dance Group in Boston, as he shows us one of his favorite family recipes, for Hortobágyi palacsinta. These savory crepes are wrapped around a delectably-spiced stewed meat filling and served with a sauce made from the thickened cooking liquid.

Dénes was born and raised in Gyula, Hungary where he started dancing over 30 years ago. He performed with the Balassi Dance Ensemble at international folk festivals all over the world. After moving to Boston, Dénes started to teach a weekly Hungarian dance class, which is still going strong over 10 years later. He has performed with Beth Bahia Cohen, with Borozda Dance Ensemble in Chicago, with Rozsafa Dance Ensemble in Washington, DC, with Delibab Dance Ensemble in New York City, and at Carnegie Hall with Nikolett Pankovits Sextet & The River Voices. Dénes says, “Besides of my dancing passion, I truly enjoy cooking as well. I love to entertain friends and share homemade Hungarian dishes with them based on authentic family recipes.”
