This year the finest Hungarian gastronomic festival will cross borders and host some of the best restaurants and chefs of the Central European region. Ana Roš from Slovenia, the world’s best female chef, and Michelin-star chef Wojciech Amaro have already been confirmed and there are more to come.
The festival will welcome culinary adventurers between 18-21 May in the heart of Budapest at District II’s Millenáris Park. This year the main focus will be on the indigenous Mangalica pig as well as strawberries.
The best of everything – even from beyond the borders
In recent years the finest restaurants of Hungary lined up next to one another at the festival, so one could taste the best chefs’ offers starting from the popular rural kitchens to Michelin-star restaurants in Budapest. This year not only Hungarian restaurants will be present, but Gourmet invites the finest guests to Budapest from the culinary scene of the region.
In addition, the best Hungarian pastry shops, wineries, breweries and pálinka distilleries will be presented as well as a wide selection of artisanal food products.
Mangalica and strawberries
In the earlier years of the festival the focus was on certain local dishes, but in 2017 two basic ingredients will be in the spotlight. This year, besides their own specialities the chefs of the best restaurants will be composing dishes using two special ingredients: the country’s world famous Mangalica pig and strawberries.
Exclusive dinners and workshops
Not only can you meet the best chefs on the stage but during exclusive dinners, too. For the menus of Ana Roš, Wojciech Amaro and Tamás Széll tickets should be bought in advance, but there will be a Hungarian Michelin all-star dinner as well as an exclusive lunch presented by the best rural restaurants.
