Hungarian Lingustic Elements in the First Romanian Cookbook

Summary/Abstract: In this research, we analyse the language of the first Romanian cookbook, Mihail Kogălniceanu’s and Costache Negruzzi’s 200 de reţete cercate de bucate, prăjituri şi alte trebi gospodăreşti, printed in Iași in 1841. This is the very first volume of gastronomy written in Romanian. Our research has revealed a number of Hungarian loanwords, such as caralab (karalábé), puhav (puha), mai de gâscă (libamáj), hagimă (hagyma), etc. We attempt to find the cause of their occurrence, and we also try to identify the reasons for which this 1841 volume displays a large network of intertextual relations with a Hungarian cookbook, István Czifray’s Magyar nemzeti szakács könyv (Budapest, 1816).
