The Debrecziner Gourmet Fesztival was held on the 11th and 12th of June at the Nagyerdo Park, Debrecen. Really amazing feel, its as though the park was re-structured just for this festival or the organizers are clearly brilliant, the setup was amazing.
So basically, it was a taste Debrecen Festival, mostly of the sausage Debrecziner (Debrecener) its a kind of pork sausage name after the city, Debrecen. You had to register online to be allowed entry free into the festival, I was fortunate to be invited by a friend to this and I don’t regret attending. This festival was, I think the first of its kind and I hope they keep it up. Jahh, let’s see a few pictures of the setup of the festival.
It all looks empty right, yeah we opened the festival.
Okay and now (drumroll please) for the food haha. The food was a bit pricey for the portions but delicious, really. Nagyon finom!
The meal above is catfish with cabbage and Debrecen sausage (Kaposztas harcsa debrecenivel ) Apparently its a 300 year old recipe. This meal was awesome, the fish tasted like chicken, the sausage and cabbage, everything was such a fantastic blend and it wasn’t salty, OMG!!!!!! What a great meal!! I might visit Tiszafured just for this.
I had a taste of this, gorgeousness, the meat, the bread, the saucee wow!
The bread reminded me of a northern nigerian snack called masa, the ratatouille was a bit different from the ratatouille I know but delicious still and Debrecener, I need to eat some more of it to really get the feel. Its different from other sausages, am yet to find the proper words to describe it.
PolaPola is a restaurant in Budapest. I need to find myself in Budapest 😀
This was a beautiful event in my opinion, it was for me an episode of discovering Debrecen/Hungary. Hungary as a country does have a lot to offer. I hope to write a lot more posts on Discovering Hungary.
Below is the website of the Taste Debrecen Festival, you could check out their gallery and see the exhibitors/restaurants for the events. These are authentic Hungarian restaurants you could check out. Let’s discover Hungary together. Read about my first post on the series Discovering Hungary: Hiking in Lillafured.
