One of the things that we get asked the most about is food. But it is just really hard to pick a favorite food experience. So, we will be sharing our favorite foods from the road in this new series, Street Food Souvenirs. We will also try to recreate these tasty treats at home and we’ll see how the homemade version stacks up against the original street food version. Today we are trying lángos (pronounced lang-osh), a tasty fried dough snack from Budapest.
As a HelpX or Workaway volunteer it is highly likely that you will be asked to prepare a meal for yourself, the other volunteers, the hosts, or maybe even 15 hostel guests (yes, that happened to us). Arming yourself with a couple of decent recipes before you go is really easy and will save you a lot of scrambling when your host eventually asks you to cook too. In our new series, Makeshift Meals, we’ll be sharing a few of our go-to recipes from the road. (Not to mention that we’ve found cooking for others is a really easy way to make friends too!)
