Gourmet Fest to return this year
For the first time since 2019, the OTP Bank Gourmet Festival will showcase the most exciting culinary offerings of Hungary, including the best restaurants, wineries, pastry shops, and more between May 27-29.
The festival will be held at the Millenáris on the Buda side of the capital.
"In the spring of 2020, we were still enthusiastically preparing for the 10th-anniversary edition of the festival, the theme of which - in an unusual way - was heritage", says Richárd Nemes, the main organizer of Gourmet. "Unfortunately, we had to cancel it for obvious reasons, just as we were unable to organize the festival in 2021. Gourmet will be celebrating the same anniversary this year, as this will be the 10th edition and the keyword will remain heritage. In this spirit, we are asking the chefs of the exhibiting restaurants to come up with personal recipes and dishes, spiced up with their own stories."
Károly Gerendai, the creator of the festival, notes, "The festival was set up with the aim of bringing quality gastronomy to a wider national audience. The recent period, with the significant decline in tourism, has confirmed the importance of the domestic audience and the need for Hungarian visitors to keep the excellent gastronomy of Hungary alive."
