Sample Hungarian vintages with our expert guests

hungry-for-hungaryOn Tuesday, June 24, 6pm, join us at Zingerman’s Roadhouse for an evening of Hungarian food, wine, and personal stories about life in this still emerging Eastern European country. Our fiends Carolyn and Gábor own the premier food tour company in Hungary today, Taste Hungary, and Carolyn is the author of the rich and highly informative book The Food and Wine Lover’s Guide to HungaryWe’ve been traveling and tasting with them in Hungary for four years, and last fall we partnered with them to lead our first public food tour to Hungary (our next Hungary food tour is May 2015).

Winemaking began in Hungary with the Romans and today is a thriving industry with both small and large producers making a full range of dry red and white wines as well as famous sweet dessert wines. If you think Hungarian wine is Bull’s Blood come and learn the more in-depth story. Enjoy a guided tasting of 5 wines along with Hungarian appetizers.

Check out Gábor & Carolyn’s other June events: a dinner at Zingerman’s Delicatessen and BAKE! Class at Zingerman’s Bakehouse.

See you soon!
