Have you ever tried a traditionally prepared ’Goulash? Orrr… ’’Porkolt’’(meat stew), ’’Halaszle’’(fisherman’s soup) and the Transylvanian sweet spiral bread ’’Kurtoskalacs’’?
These are just a few famous dishes of Hungarian cuisine that are waiting for you this weekend (8th and 9th of September) at Parc du Cinquantenaire, which is hosting HUNGastRY, a festival of Hungarian gastronomy, but also history, art and crafts. Dozens of people revel in the concerts, exhibitions, games, workshops, projections and the interactive program today.
HUNGastRY offers an entertainment for young and adults, a cultural celebration for natives and people who want to learn more about the Central European country. It is also a reminder how fascinating the Hungarian crafts are – the vivid embroidery, porcelains, handmade woolen slippers and bags.
The vibrant atmosphere continues tomorrow from 10:00 till 22:00, with Szabola ROKA(program for kids), INVERSEDANCE (the enchanted book), Cirkusz-Ka(jazz-folk), Indigo (jazz), Kbamoro(folk), Ed Philips & Memphis Patrol (rockabilly) and The Carbonfools (electronic pop) on the main stage.
Don’t forget to take part in one of the workshops, folk dances and take a photo with a “hussar”.
HUNGastRY – a great way to get a taste of the country before visiting!
