If you thought you needed to hop on a plane to get a taste of Hungary, you were wrong. At the annual Taste of Hungary Festival, on September 29, you'll get to experience all the culture and cuisine of the European country without even leaving the city, let alone Australia.
[ADVERT]The event will take place at Picnic Point in East Hills between 10.00am to 6.00pm. Food-lovers will have their taste buds delighted by authentic Hungarian foods and can participate in a 'How to make a real Hungarian Gulash' workshop. There will also be a soup cooking competition, judged by Fast Ed (otherwise known as Ed Halmagyi) and the owners of Buffalo Dining Club, who recently won the People's Choice Award in this year's TimeOut Food Awards.
The festival isn't all about the cuisine though. There's a whole lot of culture to be explored too, as you browse the market stalls or enjoy some of the live entertainment, which will include a Hungarian folk costume show, a Hungarian folk dance show from the Kengugro dance group and Hungarian folk music from the Transylvaniacs. Then there's the puppet show and face-painting for kids, while you can also meet the presenters of the Hungarian Program on 2RRR.
