Poem and a recipe from Galaczi Eszter of Gyimesközéplok/Lunca de Jos, Romania.’The girl who went to pick violets’ is a tragic poem about a girl who secretly went to meet her lover in the forest, always telling her father she was going to pick violets. But the father didn’t want his daughter to meet her lover so he followed her to the forest and shot her. The recipe is for a spring egg dish that uses pork fat, milk and fresh spring lettuce. As told to Ábrahám Judit in 2005.
