Food Truck Show to be held in Budapest this weekend
This weekend, Budapest will host the Spring Horse Race and Food Truck Show in Kincsem Park, featuring a diverse range of street food, horse racing, children's activities, and more.
The street food festival will kick off on May 6, running until May 8. The cuisines present at the event will include Greek, Spanish, American, Hungarian, Belgian, Italian, Thai, and there will be options for vegetarian guests too, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The show will be joined by Chef Lázár, who recently came in seventh in the duo category at the World Pizza Championships in Parma. This weekend will mark the debut of his pizza truck named "Chef Lazarro".
"I'm preparing a classic Neapolitan pizza for the weekend, which will also feature the Pálpusztai cheese that blew the Italian judges away. The secret to a great pizza is the right choice of ingredients - Hungarian tomatoes and Pálpuszta cheese - and creativity, but also the combination of expertise and a good pizza oven," said the chef, who also revealed that he finds food truck gastronomy exciting because you can create something big in a small space, without being tied to a particular place, be it on a waterfront, a mountain or in the middle of the countryside.
Apart from the gastronomic programs, there will be horse racing, greyhound racing, children's activities, bands, street musicians, and artists, and on May 7, a rugby training session and match will also be held.
As tradition dictates, the best food and drink truck of 2022 will be chosen by a professional jury and the public. Online voting is now open and the awards ceremony will take place on Sunday evening, where the most popular truck will receive the professional award.
Residents of local children's homes are also invited to lunch
This year, for the first time, the Kuckó volunteer program will host a lunch for residents of local children's homes and will also donate 1% of the total turnover.
Organizers say that they want to organize an unforgettable day in Kincsem Park for 100 children with a variety of activities, concerts, and a real food truck lunch to pass on the importance of an environmentally conscious approach: how to be aware of how to protect our environment by collecting waste. At the festival, waste is collected separately and only compostable packaging is used. They also use plastic-free utensils and reusable cups, and this year all cleaning products will be eco-friendly.
