Hungary’s OTP Bank will be sponsoring this yearʼs Gourmet Festival to be held at Budapest’s Millenáris Park from May 12-15, and featuring many of the top chefs in Hungary, according to a press release issued today.
The festival will highlight Hungarian gastronomy from all over the country, while also presenting wineries, pálinka distilleries, breweries and confectioners, the press statement said.
The world-famous Bocuse d’Or chef competition is set to host its European Selection in Budapest just prior to the Gourmet Festival, where red deer and sturgeon will be the main ingredients of the competition, the press release noted.
