Premium Picnic

Top chefs from across Hungary gather for an epicurean cookout in a modern urban park for Budapest’s annual Gourmet Festival, featuring a huge variety of world-class meals and artisanal delights—such as fresh goat cheese, multicolored macarons and handmade chutneys—all to be devoured al-fresco. Along with entertaining cooking demonstrations, this tasteful jamboree features some 50 types of goulash, exquisite regional wines and musicians playing live on open-air stages every afternoon and evening.
