Hey Guys! :)  I hope You all enjoy the week-end, unfortunately the weather makes that a little bit harder...


But spring Will come, someday, but the programs and festivals are surely coming! :)

Here are a bunch of them for You. If You come here to visit our little country, You should pop in to one or two gastronomic festivals, too, to feel the spirit. :)

There is even a Ham knighthood, a committee who looks, and taste the different kind of ham, provides their quality, and promotes the original Hungarian , good quality hams. :)
