The old Hungarian flavors should not be lost and forgotten, because they belong to the nation’s tradition.

In the morning hours of to-day, a but of a windy weather went to join the press announcement given by the organisers Ms. Katalin Beke, Program Director from the Festum Salon Ltd., Mr. Attila Pál Nagy, Co-organiser, and Director at the Nagy Fa-Tál gastronomic Ltd., Mr. Zoltán Zugmann, Host of the Festival, Mr.László Benke (Papa Laci) Olympic champion, master chef, master confectioner, Ms. Ági Szaloki, folk singer and Ms. Éva Szathmáry, the event’s contact person,  to hear about the coming Cultural and Gastronomic Parade. The gathering took place in a separate room at the Rivalda Restaurant, located in the 1st.District , 5-9 Színház Str. on the path that leads to the Royal Palace. The announcement was to spread the news to the forthcoming event titled: „The Heritage of Centuries” connected to the traditions of the Easter Holidays in Hungary.

So we were told the followings:During the 7th of April, till  the 9th. 2012 the inside the area of the Buda Castle, at the Royal Place will be a worthwhile place to be visited by the locals, foreigners, temporary staying in the Capital and tourists spending their Easter time here in Budapest, not just only having a day-of-fun, but to get an insight how the Hungarians keep awake their traditions.

The opening words from Mr. Zoltán Zugmann, Host of the Festival were: Easter is the second most important religious holiday in Hungary.The roots go back to the ancient times and preserving traditions is equal as to keep the traditions. The organizers emphasised to arrange this festival not just as an ordinary “fine-day-out” gathering, but also bringing alive the traditions connected to the religion holiday.

Mr. Zoltán Zugmann,  added by saying:”I wish to connect the urban feeling with the combination of the religious traditions. The event will begin with parade.The people who visit this four-day event, each day can experience the colorful world of Hungarian traditions.” Mr. Zugmann mentioned: „There will be also walky … talky guiding tour upon request, as to find out those secrets not yet to have had brought to daylight about the Buda Castle area.”

Mr. Zugmann also has high hopes saying:„The 21st century’s, man can take part in all sorts of attractions strolling through the paths up on the Buda-hilly inside the area of the Castle of Buda at the Royal Palace and feel, hear, taste the delights and see how the Hungarians keep their faith in their tradition.”

We were told, that throughout the 3 days there will be ongoing live music. Renowned contemporary Hungarian music, folk music and dance, concerts entertaining music and plays for kids and for the young adults of to-day’s popular groups like the Besh-O-Drom, Ms. Márta Sebestyén, The Misztrál, Ms. Agi Szaloki, Mr. György Ferenczy and The Rackajam and like to say a word about another performer Ms. Ági Herzku, a young folk singer, who I had the pleasure to see, hear last year at the Margaret Island in the “Ecser Wedding Dance and Dreamtime”production. and many more will step on stage and ensure your unforgettable time spending in Budapest.

Recently published editor of cook-book, Ms. Barbara Hegyi, actress will be together at the event as a guest with Papa Laci.

Just to mention a couple more features told by Mr. Zugmann: “Be prepaired to see a colourful show in the coming four days with also participating with their local Gourmand and craft work of our neighbouring fellows: the Carpathian Basin, Felvidék, a part of Southern Slovakia, also a show as to “Meet the Primates” and Székely land.

Chef Mr. László Benke, “Papa Laci” welcomed the gathered representatives by quoting Mr. Kálmán Mikszáth, a great Hungarian one said: “The people of a nation who do not cherish their past … does not deserve its future! “After  this quotation he went back to the earlier times, by saying: ”AD 313 was the first celebration of Easter and it is true it took four days. Pope Pius X stopped this 4 days celebration in the 19th century by saying: „One day will do for the celebration and that’s it!” „Ahhh, but we are Hungarians” said Papa Laci: „one day!?!  We sure like to eat and drink, but only for a day!?! By-the-way, you cannot see this to appear on us! Just look at me for example, I don’t have any problem with my weight, the only problem I have is with my height!” Seeing him, said it all and the gathered group all had a touchy smile on their face.

He continued: „So after the fast during Xmas time we would like to eat and drink at Easter as well. We begin to fill our bellies again. During this 3 days event, we will be inviting with sample of tastes the visitors to sence the Hungarian mouthwatering  delights.”

I’m not on my own, many of the Hungarians have great love for the rich in flavor soups. They can eat it with a spoon or have it as a glass of drink. So after having the sample of the mouth-watering delights, anyone can have the a glass of drink,  so-called: beer, pálinka, and you bet, the very best of Hungarian wines. Naturally, thinking about the thirsty kids, soft drinks will be also available.

At the end of the press announcement Ms. Ági Szaloki sang a sweet old folk song. Thenafter, Papa Laci invited the press participants to a reception, a table filled with his delicious yummies.

Here are some smarties: “The tradition is not sick, having to care for.”

Tradition is not a prisoner to have to be retained, however, try to relive and have the experiences of the tradition.

Hopefully, this event will be kept as a traditional festival in the years to come.
