Report by 

David Katz 

from Life Magazine Hungary

Get to know Helen M. Radics, who’s making her Hungarian Walnut Roll overseas right now.  She’s a very nice lady, and this is why I feel we need to say hello to her.

Helen spends her retired years in Canada, in a city called Waterloo.  She is very productive through her videos, she tries to let people know about our nation’s unmistakable culinary world.

As we found out from our charming Helen, she started cooking at a young age.  In other words, she’s a true pro.  We found her while searching for Hungarian roll recipes on the internet.

David Katz

How well do they know Hungarian rolls out there (in Canada)?

They know it well enough, and before the holidays it is very popular.

On this segment a real housewife teaches you the secret of Hungarian Rolls.  No make-up, no fancy gown, Helen’s so natural.

We could finish her little story right here and now, but we are not doing that, because back home (in Hungary) for almost a week now, our annual Christmas battle is on between the Walnut Roll and Poppy Seed Roll.  On the voting started a few days ago, but already tens of thousands stood by their favorite filling.

And this is where Helen comes into the picture once again, who also votes for her favorite.

David Katz

Which Roll you like the best and why?

Helen M. Radics

I enjoy walnut roll best.  It reminds me of my childhood.

David Katz

The lady does not only enjoy her favorite filling, but from now on, she is also the representative for the walnut roll camp.

Why should they vote for the walnut roll?

Because of its unique flavor, it’s magical, warm, and you know, love is radiating from it.  It reminds me of my childhood and I would like to ask people to vote for the Walnut Roll because it is unique.  The Poppy Seed roll is an everyday roll for me.

David Katz

But who will lead the other camp?  Who will stand at the head of the Poppy Seed Group?  Find out from our next show.  Until then let’s marvel in Helen’s latest video, in which alongside the walnut roll, her usual charm is also sneaked in.
