Polish-Hungarian Reflection

Polish-Hungarian Reflection

16th and 17th September 2016, 6.30 p.m.

Polish-Hungarian Reflection in the Gellért or who cooks how in the other language

An exciting gastro bridge is being built between Polish and Hungarian cuisine with the participation of Gellért Söröző & Brasserie, Eastore Kft. and the Polish Institute. The interesting twist is that leading Hungarian chefs will cook Polish dishes while their Polish colleagues will serve up their interpretations of the masterpieces of Hungarian cuisine. We will see the results on 16th and 17th September in Danubius Hotel Gellért’s recently refurbished bistro. And on Sunday the popular Sunday Brunch will be offering authentic Polish dishes in the Gellért.

Three excellent Hungarian chefs and the chefs de cuisine of three sensational Polish restaurants are preparing for a special “culinary crossover” action! Renowned Polish chefs will create Hungarian dishes from Hungarian ingredients, while the leading Hungarian chefs will do the opposite, they will prepare Polish dishes from Polish ingredients. This special gastric journey will feature – among others – the emblematic Polish herring and forest mushrooms, and Hungarian goose liver and beef cheek.
The apropos is the ELEVEN Ősz series of programmes organised by Bartók Béla Boulvard, that will focus this year on introducing Poland and is built on the traditional friendship between Poland and Hungary.
