District, XIV., Vajdahunyad Castle Promenade – Budapest

For a month you may taste the world’s winter festive meals.

December, 13, 2019 – January 12, 2020.

The organizers of the Advent Basilica, the most beautiful Xmas market in Europe elected on the basis of votes have launched another special event. Namely: Winternational is the first international winter gastronomy festival in  Budapest – Hungary.

What is actually Winternational, get to answer by visiting non less than delights from 25 vendors offering from 15 country‘s winter cuisine.  The organizers held a walk-through tasting press gathering by visiting the food booths. Entrance  to the venue is at the light-painted dome tent. Skip-the-line tickets, cause entry is free of charge.

As the visitors will be entering the venue will be greeted by eye-catching fairy tale settings: a lantern forest, light-painted dome tent, a magical miniature carousel for the kids to have fun on the chilly days of the season, and to view the iconic building of the renewed Liget park is just minutes away. Also reaching the spot many may be passing the Monuments of Hero Square and then will catch the eye of the magnificent sight of the Vajdahunyad Castle. 

When it comes to the winter traditions around the world may see not the same in every country. In Europe, Xmas is typically celebrated, but there are countries where there are other tradition such as the Western and Orthodox Christian. Not all keeping the holiday it the same way. However, when time comes in celebrating their special event, families gather and enjoying number of programs, along with traditional food and drinks.

In Hungary the main Xmas dish still kept tradition, for Xmas eve fish is prepared in several ways, famous Hungarian fish soup, baked fish with dressing and different fillings of beigli (cake).
In Eastern European origins flavor turkey with trimmings, keilbasi (Polish sausage), cabbage dishes, and soups.

Traditions kept around the world …. In the Anglo-Saxon culture, some regions  Santa Claus called (Chimney John) brings the gifts for the kids.. In Sweden, it is celebrated throughout December and traditionally until St. Knut’s Day on January 13. In Finland people believe that Santa Claus or Father Christmas lives in the northern part of Finland called Korvatunturi (or Lapland), north of the Arctic Circle and they bring the gifts to young ones. Almost every year in Israel celebrate during the same time Hanukkah at Christmas. Hanukkah is the Jewish Festival of Lights and it remembers the rededication of the second Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, in Israel. This happened in the 160s BCE/BC (before Jesus was born). Hanukkah is the Hebrew and Aramaic word for ‘dedication’. In Australia, at this time of year it is summertime, schools out and celebration beside spending time to avoid the heat stay around the beach or in tents where the presents are normally exchanged between families on Christmas Day.  Santa sometimes gives the reindeers a rest and might use kangaroos to travel with the gifts for the kids. He also changes his clothes for less ‘hot’ ones! Children often leave out carrots for Santa’s reindeer and there might be some cake for Santa, with some cold beer but it’s often non-alcoholic because Santa has to drive his sleigh back home to the North.

There is also at this time of year around the world a certain identity for good wishes, spoken in local languages, for example: Sweden: God Jul, Finland: Korvatunturi (or Lapland), north of the Arctic Circle and they greet each other by saying: Merry Christmas. Indonesia: Selamat Natal, Irish-Gaelic: Nollaig Shona Dhuit, Israel-Hebrew: Chag Molad Sameach meaning “Happy festival of birth”, Italy: Buon Natale, Malaysia-Bahasa / Malay: Selamat Hari Natal, Native American-Yupik: Alussistuakeggtaarmek, The Netherlands -Dutch: Prettige Kerst (Happy Christmas). Also China celebrating their most important holiday the Dongzhi Festival. So, if any of the visitors to the Vajdahunyad Castle meet any of these tourist may great them in the mother tongue language.

The Winternational is really just a few steps from the sumptuous Hero Square and the Budapest’s largest outdoor skating rink just across the Castle. Either of these hot spot venues are definitely to visit by tourists on the cool days. Spend your vacation, or relax  not missing this wonderful location while staying in Budapest making the fullest memories. A must-see and must-taste experience.

The gastronomy of these religious and cultural diversity was sought by the organizers to introduce and present to the locals, tourists staying, foreigners living in or outside of Budapest to  pay a visit to the Winternational Gastronomy Festival. Visitors can sample American (Buffalo Bill steamed meats), Germans (sausage delivery), Belgians (sweeties) French yummy (light vegetable and ham pies), Chinese (herbal drinks). Naturally, can be found in many places traditional Hungarian delicacies of the kitchen, and who are longing for hot drinks can have a taste of the delicious “AfterEight flavor hot chocolate, also with a touch of rum or with clove version. Also mulled wine and hot tea is not missing, to warm up the visitors. During the Winternational Gastronomy Festival, the Chinese Tourism Agency will permanently open a Pandah House with a special decoration, where besides the permanent programs (coloring, panda searching, photo tree) there will be exciting events, a fine place for the children to keep themselves busy.

But surely for the lineup of gastronomy delights the visitors need not have to get on a train nor fly over long distance and in hours to reach these delightful food.

At the Winternational feastival, expecting a decorated Xmas tree, don’t count on it, cause not all the countries at the venue keep … as said a bit earlier.  … the Xmas holidays in their country.

More than 225 million bottles of Italian wine cross the border each year. Two thirds of Italian wines are either Protected Designation of Origin (DOP) or Protected Geographical Indication (IGP). Both signs promise excellent quality. The difference between the two is a nuance. IGP – this certificate certifies that at least a certain part of the production and production took place in the wine region. DOP – certifies that all production took place in a strictly defined area.

Talked about the road that lead him to be wine specialist, mentioning his studies and traveling experiences gain abroad … Studied at the Paolino d’Aquileia Agricultural Institute in Cividale del Friuli while working for Jermann in Friuli-Venezia Giulia.

Made in Italy – Made in Modena – Balsamic Vinegar & Parmigiano-Reggiano a.k.a Parmesan

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In the frame of the 4th World Italian Gastronomy Week on Monday, November, 19., – Italian Cultural Institution – Budapest

Without leaving Budapest took a trip to the world of senses and flavors  “Made in Modena” with our excellent taste tour guide, the enthusiastic  Ms. Luisa Torri – Head of University of Gastronomic Sciences Pollemzo Sensory Test Laboratory.  She unveiled in pairing the protected origin and traditional of Parmesan and balsamic vinegar.

Within her presentation she spoke about the balsamic vinegar processes from “from the life of the grape growth” up to be served as balsamic vinegar on the table.

Talked about how it is made by saying… “In order to obtain the TBVM, the grapes harvested must be those “used for the wine traditionally cultivated in the province of Modena”. In particular, from Lambrusco and Trebbiano grapes. The procedure necessary in order to obtain TBVM consists of three basic stages …harvesting of grapes, pressing of the grapes and cooking of the grape must and the aging. Often the procedures goes by word-of-mouth, from generation to generation. But for sure, preparing the balsamic vinegar has a choreography itself, it is through lengthy aging in a series of 5 small barrels of different kinds of wood , with no addition of aromatic substances. As it evaporates it is always refilled from the earlier aged balsamic barrel to the elder wooden barrel.

In order to be bottled in the characteristic and legally exclusive bottle, all Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, must be assessed by a panel of five expert tasters who authorize by the set visual, smell and taste standards. The affixing of a numbered seal guarantees the quality of the product contained in each individual bottle.

The traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena is unique in the world of vinegar-based dressings. It is a rich, dark glossy color, characteristic density, smooth flowing syrupiness.

Ms. Torri noted that there are less aged vinegar that goes perfectly well with a few drops on the vanilla or with chocolate ice-cream and also on the light sponge cake is good too.

On our tour in tasting Italy continued with the Parmigiano-Reggiano, also called “King of Cheese”. Around Europa is better known as Parmesan. It is an Italian granular cheese. Received its named after the producing areas, the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, the part of Bologna west of the Reno, and Modena (all in Emilia-Romagna) a part of Lombardy. Parmigiano-Reggiano is made from unpasteurized cow’s milk. “Parmesan” are protected designations of origin (PDO).

According to legend, Parmigiano-Reggiano was created in the course of the Middle Ages when the Benedictine monks began producing large wheels of cheese with a long maturation period using no additives  or preservatives. Nine centuries later, Parmigiano Reggiano remains the same natural product from raw milk, processed without the use of additives with a minimum maturation period of 12 months. Historical documents show that in the 13th and 14th centuries, Parmigiano was already very similar to that produced today, which suggests its origins can be traced to far earlier. It was praised as early as 1348 in the writings of Boccaccio in the Decameron  invents a “mountain, all of grated Parmesan cheese”. Each wheel must meet strict criteria early in the aging process, when the cheese is still soft and creamy, to merit the official seal and be placed in storage for aging.

The true Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese has a sharp, complex fruity … nutty taste with a strong savory flavor and a slightly gritty texture. Inferior versions can impart a bitter taste. The average Parmigiano-Reggiano wheel is about 18–24 cm (7–9 inch), high, 40–45 cm (16–18 inch) in diameter, and weighs 38 kg (84 lb).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Autumn Festival of Museums – October, 8. – November, 10. 2019.

This year the Blessed Gizella  Archdiocese Collection will be implemented during the Autumn Festival of Museums nationwide program series. Keep in mind that four outstanding Italian centerRome, Kingdom of Naples, Bologna and the Republic of Venice painting exhibition can be viewed in the Blessed Gizella Collection, from the 17th and 18th century collection showing Italian Baroque painting and graphic material, the works of Luca Giordano and Solimena of Naples, Piazzetta of Venice, and masterpieces of Roman caravaggist artists.

In addition to the huge material selection of arts, can be seen other historical art collections barrowed from other Hungarian museums.

The Right of the Bishops of Veszprém to Crown the Queens!

The bishopric of Veszprém is presumably the oldest of the ten bishoprics founded by St. Stephen and it is certain that it existed as early as 1001.The Cathedral of Veszprém was founded by Queen Gizella, and her crown was kept in the Cathedral until 1207. Queen Gizella came from Bavaria. Her crown was kept in the cathedral, but King András II took it with him when he went on a Crusade to the Holy Land in 1217, and he sold it in the course of his travels.The right of the bishops of Veszprém to crown the queens was an ancestral right sanctioned by tradition. The bishops of Veszprém were also the Chancellors of the Queen, and they listed this among their titles until 1946. Between 1392 to 1773 the bishops were the Lord Lieutenants of Veszprém. Her crown was kept in the cathedral, but King András II took it with him when he went on a Crusade to the Holy Land in 1217, and he sold it in the course of his travels. The right of the bishops of Veszprém to crown the queens was an ancestral right sanctioned by tradition. Until the 16th century, the coronation of the queens was performed by touching the queen’s right shoulder with the Holy Crown. Later, in the Habsburg Era, the so-called domestic crown and the Hungarian Holy Crown were in use.

Following the submission of a proposal by the Blessed Gizella Archdiocese Collection, in 2014 the committee of the Municipal Value Inventory Committee of Veszprém declared the right of the bishops of Veszprém to crown the queens as part of the intangible cultural heritage of the city of Veszprém.

In 1772, the precentor János György Tejfalussy (Milchdorfer) had built the Tejfalussy canon house to the immediate north of the Franciscan monastery. The main Baroque building, the arched rooms and staircase of which show the original condition, was constructed on the double castle wall, presumably on the site of two earlier Baroque buildings. The building has three stories, while on the street front it is two-storied. The ecclesiastical treasury, which is the second richest collection of the Hungarian ecclesiastical treasuries, consisting of around 5,000 pieces.

Blessed Gizella Archdiocese Collection – The Saint George Chapel …According to the medieval chronicles, Prince Saint Imre took a vow of chastity in the round, Romanesque-style chapel, which was built in the 10th and 11th centuries. The relic of the head of Saint George, which King Saint Stephen was given by the Byzantine emperor, was also kept here. The chapel was also a chapter house, and indeed according to a charter that was issued in 1417 it was also the site for the elections of bishops. It was also a place of pilgrimage, to which Holy Roman Emperor Sigismund of Luxembourg traveled in 1401.

Within the Blessed Gizella Archdiocese Collection “From Naples to Venice” two centuries of Italian Baroque paintings from the 17th and 18th Century can be discovered at the exhibition held between May, 7. to November, 10. 2019. Time is certainly short, but those in interest to these breathtaking arts and painting be sure to make previous provisions at the Archiepiscopal Palace ( 16. Vár Street) for the Tejfalussy Cannon House ( 35. Vár Street) – Info: boldoggizella@gmail.com

One of the symbols of the town stands on the highest peak of Veszprém, the  Fire Tower – The Castle’s one and only tower from medieval times, the so-called Barbican … the present Fire Tower.  The Fire Tower firstly built as a watchtower, but later was rebuilt to alarm in case of fire. Climbing up to the top on a narrow, spiral stairway is worthwhile to have an unforgettable view on the city. Every hour the clock of the tower plays ‘conscription music’ composed by the Veszprém composer Antal Csermák. There is a wonderful view of the landscape of Veszprém from the balcony of the tower. Permanent exhibition introduces the history of the Fire Lookout Tower. Visitors can see copies of the documents found after the renovations  held between 1814 – 1891. Exhibited the original metal document storage cylinders and the coins found there, as well as other interesting photos and descriptions about the history of the monument. The entrance ticket to the Fire lookout Tower is valid for this exhibition, too.

There is so much to see, that a full day is needed to admire treasures of the History Arts at Veszprém.

Last but not least, thanks to the professional experts who led the way to explore, taking part in the adventure of these two  major cities Székesfehérvár and Veszprém. This kind of joint cultural festival with all its programs is suitable and encourages everyone to get on the road in any city of the country … look in a museums … seek a hidden treasure and when leaving need not have to have a second thought that Hungary is the source of miracles.
