This is a 1935 Jenes Erno pictorial gastronomic map of Hungary illustrating the 'most important food and drink'. The map depicts the entire country from Zalagerszeg to Debrecen and from Sarospatak to Pécs and Mohács. Highly attractive and very colorful, food and drink savored all over Hungary is illustrated. Wild game, fish, and livestock are illustrated, along with fruits, vegetables, and grain. Numerous different kinds of wine are depicted. Different kinds of food are labeled with blue boxes, while the different types of drinks are labeled with red boxes. Several scenes of life in Hungary are illustrated, including, below the title, what appears to be a 'traditional' feast, complete with young girls in traditional dresses and a small group of musicians. In the lower left corner, a scene in a hunting lodge is illustrated following a successful hunt. Three men appear around a table. With their rifles leaning against the table and their kill sprawled out on the floor, the men celebrate their success over a drink, while a family meal appears in the lower right corner. Hungarian people are illustrated throughout the map among the various dishes and drinks. Numerous Hungarian cities are labeled, including Budapest.
This map was drawn by Jeges Erno and published in Budapest in 1935. It appears to have been a tourist piece targated at German-speaking travelers.
