In-and-around  the Festival of the Jelly Meat  at Miskolc, in between February 22-24, the Miskolc National Theater‘s on  Saturday, February 23. during the season in the series of drama programs, three well-known figures of gentry living with us, previously playing in the “Csörgheő Csuli – knuckle” by outstanding well-known actors as Mr. György Cserhalmi, Mr. András Stohl and Mr.Tibor Gáspár came along to show their own tricks and knowlege by the way of cooking the famous Hungarian Grey Beef Stew! Each of them brought their own style by cooking with the flavors from their birth region and the family use of spices. More to the gathering they talked about their role in the character, playing “Csörgheő Csuli Knuckle”, script written by Zsigmond Móricz. As the stew was on open fire the ongoing tasting went on-and-on. Also by tasting the other’s boiling stews,picking on eachother with jokes whileand  having some pálinka in the deepth of the  snowy cold weather to be hot just as the stew on fire. Theysurely caught the mood and enjoyed their role in cooking as well. Mr. Tibor Gáspár told us, this is his first time cooking the Hungarian grey beef soup…haa. Mr. Sohl said his father cooked the best beef stew in the world so he wish to cooking it  ala father’s sytle. Mr. Cserhalmi told us, his convincted this stew will win the first prize :-). We awaited for the surprise at the end. Must admit all the stews were heavenly yummy, soft and tender was the meat, perfectly cooked.

The stews were still of fire when  the talk-show went on in the theater’s main stage. The “Csuli Chief’s” assistants took over the woodenspoon, looked after the composition.  The show started with a huge birthday cake rolling onto the stage .. .it was Mr. András Stohl’s birthday and recently Mr. György Cserhalmi’s as well. Funny when it comes to talking about the exact year of a person’s birthday, so the moderator only added the three of the actors age in years as  total of 111years. The talk-show was moderated by Mr. Artúr Szőcs.

At the end of the talk-show, the audience were called to have a taste of the three “cookers”  beef stew and decide which one was the best in flavors and taste. Yet, before the tasting was open,  on stage came 5 genuine gypsy violin players to enroll in the competition.The “Csuli’s” at the end decided whose primate play was the best. In the competition all gypsy players were from the region of Borsod.  The four out of the five competitors are already famous, well-known gypsy violin players around the world. There was also a member in competition who plays at the 100 member gypsy orchestra, but this evening the three Csuli members  called out as one for the winner to the  talented young violinist.

What a day-and-night … most sure many locals enjoyed their stay and  those people how arrived just for this special day will remember of the fun they had. Heard there will quite a number of visitors from Budapest, just to see these fab. actors “in motion”!

Congrats goes out to the Miskolc National Theater to have in mind as to organized such a  superb day … cooking at the theater’s courtyard  and  holding a n awesome evening on the stage  with the three grand characters of   “Csuli”.  And theevening’s cream on top of the cake was absolutely highlighted  with the grand gypsy violin players.
