Flavors from the Budapest Christmas Fair

The Budapest Christmas Market is held to be amongst the ten best Christmas markets in Europe. The spectacular fair takes place every year from the end of November until 24th December in the heart of the city, in Vörösmarty Square.

The market also has a gastronomic side. On the event, beside the Hungarian stuffed cabbage, chimney cake and the fried dough the visitors can taste these traditional Hungarian foods and beverages:

Hungarian fried sausage, we call it sültkolbász.

I can't tell you how happy your beautiful post made me. I was looking for a recipe for genuine old-fashioned szaloncukor and found your blog. Love it. Think I'll go back to Budapest for the fair next year. Looks wonderful.
