The Hungarians, purportedly descendants of the clan of the Attila the Hun, have a fittingly hearty and solid cuisine. Meats, dumplings, noodles and stews are central to meals. Peppers are a popular vegetable and are dried and ground to spectacular effect into Hungarian paprika. The Hungarians are famous for pastries and sweets like palascintak and Dobos torta.
