There’s something incredibly comforting about her well-used recipe cards, filled with love and history.My grandmother, Eva—affectionately known as Omama—was born in Munkatch and survived the horrors of the Holocaust by hiding in Budapest. She eventually settled in Belgium with her family, where her culinary talents continued to shine.Though Omama passed over 20 years ago, her legacy lives on through her recipes, which still grace our table to this day. Each time we cook Oma’s Nudli, it feels like she’s right there with us, guiding our hands and filling our hearts with warmth and love. Oma’s Nudli Recipe:
