I have been cooking Chicken Paprikash and other authentic Hungarian dishes for friends and family since I emigrated from Hungary to the United States as a child. It has brought me such joy over the years, so on a whim in 2008, I entered the Cleveland Paprikash Cook-Off. I was honored that my chicken paprikash was selected as the winner, by a landslide, in the popular vote category.
I was bombarded with questions from event attendees as to where they may be able to eat or buy my chicken paprikash. One gentleman suggested that I produce a sauce so that they can make and eat at home. At the time, I thought it was impossible since cooking chicken paprikash was a 3-5 hour process.
However, I toyed with the idea for the next two years and much to my surprise I was able to develop a formula and a manufacturing process which recreated my award winning paprikash. And this is how JOZSEF’S PREMIUM PAPRIKASH SAUCE was born!!
