To-day’s press conference was held by the participation of Ms.Csákiné dr. Christina Gyuris, Deputy Director General, National Authority for Consumer Protection and Mr. Krisztián Pap, Managing Director of  Hand-made Hungarian Flavors Ltd. and Ms. Marcsi Borbás, the fair’s hostess.  Just like the previous year, the  Hand-made  Hungarian Flavours and Handicrafts will be arranged at the same scene  at the Millennium Center.  Both representatives, the National Authority for Consumer Protection and the Managing Director of  Hand-made Hungarian Flavors Ltd  held their press conference describing the mutual cooperation for the first time  in order to promote and protect the traditional Hungarian cuisines.

The representatives talked about the list of products, the flavors of  the hand-made flavors  that will be revealed by anyone rolling along, viewing Hungary’s  huge “Map of  Tastes” on the spot. A fine time to learn about the area the food originates and its traditional culinary specialities. Thereafter, go and have the samples to gain your own experiences.

Hungary is a country of tradition within its rich and tasty flavors. It is a part of the Hungarian culture.

The organizers will be preparing a stage with an ongoing cooking show. There many visitors can also collect ideas to  prepare their menu for  weekends to come.

The full price of the entry ticket can be used to purchase, buy some goodies at the store of the Hungarian hand-made flavors: 3rd District. 4/B Szőlőkert Rd. Budapest.

This year, just like at the previous year’s fair will be under the patronage of Mrs. Schmittné, Katalin Makray,  wife of the President of Hungary,  Dr. Sándor Fazekas, professional patron, Minister of the Urban Development . Ms. Marcsi Borbás, editor, presenter who also be  hostess of the fair.

The representatives of the National Authority for Consumer Protection wish to encourage the visitors to not only speak about their previous  failures, but to hear about their positive experiences, as to indicate the pleasure of their choice and gather opinion why it won their approval.

To go through the list of 5000  Hungarian  culinary specialities  would take ages, so therefore here is just two delicacies I would raise everyone’s attention. The  mouth-watering: smoked trout from “Szilvásvárad” (country’s one-and-only artificially kept pond of trouts).  The other that shouldn’t be missed to taste: the artisan “bükki” cheese.

Now it’s up to the curious visitors to get the best-of-the-best of the Hungarian hand-made flavors by making sure to be there at one of the days, but  I am not certain that after paying  the first visit  there will not be some going  back the next day to continue the discovery, to explore what have had been  left out of tasting the day before. Most probably there will be more tasting to follow and understand by own experiences why the Hungarians love their traditional home-made flavors.
