Even little Red Riding Hood would have had been satisfied last Friday at the Millenium Park, while rolling through, collecting the Hungarian hand-made food.

On the last day of the Fair  at the Millenium Park was a full day full with visitors with huge bags collecting meat, honey, natural fruit juice, cheese, wine, palinka, all sorts of mixed ingredients, flavor spices, hand-made noodles, just to mention a few on the pallet that could have had been brought at this grand gathering. Below are some of the visited stands I would like to recommend for the future gatherings to the  foreigner visitors to  hover to the Festival or Fair of Hungarian gastronomic specialties.

NATURAL FRUIT JUICE: The VitaBox products are 100% proof natural fruit juice. Freshly squeezed, made of healthy fruits that you and your family will always have the best. Material does not contain any added! The VitaBox main goal is to go back to the natural world with their natural fruit juices that preserves the valuable vitamin groups, trace elements and mineral material. Beside the fruits the selection of veggies are becoming very popular, especially the beetroot. As I was told: “The juice picked from the tree”. The VitaBox products met the highest European standards as well as the customers expectation.The most important feature is that the fruit is raw material in addition to any added substances (eg sugar, artificial colors, flavors, stabilizers and preservatives, additives) are not included. They are packed in boxes, 5 liter fruit juice in each, or 2in1, two different fruit juice packaged separately in one box with a total of 5 liter and in bottled form – 0,2 liter. Especially wonderful to have a glass or two when the season doesn’t produce these mouth-watering delicious fruits from our huge regions of “fruitland”. Having tasting their full-scale of fruit juices, I personally would drink this day-and-night… yummy! Could not resist after the tasting to get a few “buckets in box” of these fine tasty fruit juices. I would highly recommend the gourmet lovers to purchase next time they will be out on fair or festival where Hungarian products can be found. They will absolutely feel like tasting the raw fruits.

CHEESE: Saw a headline saying: “Products starting from the grass and ending up on your table!”  What is the secret of the hand-made cheese, well a part of it is pretty much known, the hard two hand work and love added. Some facts are always missing, but at the Fair the manufacture spoked and shared their experiences about their “baby” that we mainly are not told when doing our week-end shopping. The Agria hand-made cheese-workroom are taken in hand from the natural conditions of the free-held Hungarian Simmental and Holstein-Friesian cows, whole milk. Along this hard work, the result: milk, cheese and dairy products and include herbs growing in the mountains of valuable active ingredients are all we so much enjoy of the end products.

BIO-WINE: The Gajdos winery also presented a grand variety of their Bio-wine products. At the fair the main attraction went out for the Bull’s Blood from the region of Eger. Most probably no one has to be introduced to the Hungarian Bull’s Blood, this wine is well know throughout the world. The rich flavor is blended from Gamay, which gives it a fruity and silky taste. All around the stand  were a massive crowd tasting the Gajdos wines. As was told they place a huge emphasis on the organic quality of grapes and in producing their wines. Their winery has opted with the latest solutions, and this can definitely be tasted, recognized on the quality of their wines.

HONEY: One of the outstanding Hungarian natural products was the huge variety of medicinal honey. This was introduced at the scene of the “Herbatea”. The Herbatea manufacture Ltd. aim is to distribute the selected herbs, which for ages are and have been proven efficiency for the better health. The honey names were given a fantasy call:  “sweet dreams” up to “fresh-up”. The herb active ingredients are in high-quality assured by the Hungarian honey producers. It concentrate to its beneficial effects on the body to further enhance their beneficial effects.

BEER:  Mr. András Szilágyi, the brewer of millet beer (5% alcohol) with the semi dark and lager beer was pretty popular at the fair. He also served hot spicy millet beer, similar to the hot spicy beer in Ireland, but with the Hungarian special ingredients to give the unique touch. Surely many visiting his stand had that smooth taste.

A total of 17 thousand visitors gathered during the 3 days and the income also helped tens of millions of HUF to the Hungarian producers and its Hungarian economy.

Last but not least, the Fair winner producer at the 3rd Hungarian hand-made flavor and crafts was Mr. Gergely Molnár by reaching the highest votes from the visitors who voted to his honey products brought from  the “Honeymuseum”

Hope my update will serve the better of information to the temporary foreigners staying in Budapest.
