Hungarian Apricot Fiesta
Boldogkőváralja, 1-2. July
Top restaurants, really! At the same time in the same place. But there is a difference: Anyukám Mondta’s legendary meals, the Sárga Borház’s grilled favourites, the Aranygombos’ very well-known domesticated dishes and also the local’s crazy good apricot dumplings will be found in the Bestillo Garten so you can try them together.
The Gönci Barack Gastro is about gönci apricot: we put it in everything. So, we asked every restaurant owner to be inspired by it. Bite it, sip it, dry it, caramelize it – and have it on the plate. There is going to be apricot jam-making, apricot pálinka and apricot syrup. Donut, filled puff pastry and potato lángos (deep fried flatbread). Excellent wines, special jams, even organic honey made under himself God’s hands!
There is going to be distiller viewing, tasting, fire-making in an outdoor oven, brunch at the market, pastry and children’s favourite meals. Also, tasty wines and the country’s coolest beers. Everyone who comes to the Gönci Barack Vigasság should expect a hedonistic weekend. This year also, the guests will be able to travel by our favourite train between the Bestillo Garten and the Castle of Boldogkőváralja.
The Gönci Barack Vigasság is family- and child-friendly. The programs are great for relaxing for everyone and we welcome everybody, from the youngest member of the family to the oldest! Besides the programs the youngsters can participate all day in a playing-house and try different kind of handicrafts such as pottery or they can learn the creative use of recycled materials maybe even get to know the art of wood-carving and vitreous enamel. The local grandmothers and lots of others will make apricot dumplings, crepes, jam, syrup, pastry and healthy dishes for them. The most important is that they will be able to use up all their extra energy while being surrounded by a legendary green place under the fresh air. If they would like to, they could also jump around in a stack of straw or in a springboard. This is what the kids really miss and luckily the parents won’t have to try so hard to get the little ones to sleep in the evening. We are certain of that. A sanitary changing table is going to be set up and, we can offer help with warming baby food up. And for the smallest babies, there are going to be comfy armchairs in a discreet place.
The organizers of the Gönci Barack Vigasság don’t deal with reservations and such, the list is only for your guidance but you can book (in time!) at the selected accommodation.
