What to expect  this year at  the pálinka and sausage festival: a selection of home-made cheese, delicious choices of desserts also hand-made.  In brief, the size of the festival can be measured not only by the number of visitors, but by the number of the exhibitors. There will be more than 25 exhibitors and 400 superb distillates, a number of 15 well-known Hungarian sausages with some “new comers” at the „sausageland”. For the first time, a real curio will be at the festival for the visitors at the stand of the Békési family’s products …   the plum jam sausages. And as to keep in mind, the Békési Family will bring to Budapest their Plum Plantation, of course in theory, but in practice, anyone can adopt a red plum-tree and from its fruit make a pálinka, of course, not tomorrow, but the day after tomorrow at the 2014 harvest. This opportunity is not only a new „gift of adoption” aninitiative here at the festival, but absolutely a sensational flashnews for locals and more to it the for the foreigners living in Budapest, or on a trip visiting Hungary to come back to Hungary to the next harvest of the red plum at Békési.

The home-made cheese makers will have their wide range of specialities.  During the 4 days festival all these “liquid bread” (is a way of Hungarians expressing the hot shots) and „non liquid bread” mouth-watering delights will be there awaiting to be tasted by locals, and foreigners working, being on a tour in Hungary.

The place doesn’t only sounds good, but a real timeout opportunity on an autumn day to spend a splendid day or four and enjoy the wonderful tastes, sounds, sights with friends and family.

Own snaps will be coming shortly after attending the invitation on Friday.
