Dorottya Czuk

Dóra grew up in Budapest and spent many years working as a journalist and a press officer for the city of Budapest. When she switched the focus of her career to follow her interest in food, food writing in Hungary was practically non-existent. Dóra always finds new ways to learn about food and cooking, including having spent time working in a gourmet food shop, taking classes, and interviewing chefs for her articles. She currently writes a bi-monthly column for Hungary’s largest-circulation food magazine. Over the past few years she has been learning about wine making first hand since her and her husband own a small winery in Tokaj. When she is not writing or interpreting for visiting journalists, Dóra can be found hanging out with her twin sons. Though Dóra usually writes in Hungarian, you can read a few of her English articles on Tablet: In Wine, Truth and How ‘Jewish Eggs’ Regained Their Place in Hungary’s Kitchens.
