This visit of mine cannot pass without mentioning a long loved, and long lost dish that I have been searching far and wide for, but to no avail.
Do you remember the chain restaurant called "The Magic Pan"? Specializing in crepe dishes, they had a terrific salad too, with Mandarin oranges and sliced toasted almonds, but it wasn't a "Chinese" salad. It was simply delightful.
But the main focus of my Magic Pan quest is a ham and cheese crepe which was actually deep fried, and was called Ham Palincintas (a Hungarian word meaning...I don't know, "Delectable," perhaps?) The ham within was shaved fine, almost like ham "dust." Co-mingled with the ham and cheese was a gorgeous mustard (honey mustard?) sauce, and resting atop the crepe itself was a light sprinkle of Parmesan.
Should you have the wherewithal to point me in the right direction to find the recipe for this item (forget Google), I would be deeply in your debt. Please direct your email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. And, if you don't know about this recipe, well...at least accept my gratefulness for causing me to relive the joy of that dish.
If you know of the recipe, please leave a comment below.
And keep those food memories coming!
