Culinary festivals

Where does the grain that goes into my breakfast roll grow? What pasture is my roast pork running around in? And how is biodynamic wine produced?

Culinary festivals generally coincide with the harvest of the given product and enable you to encounter farmers, winemakers and producers and purchase in the region. Usually a kirtag (fair) or market has a long tradition and is connected with customary events. In any case, you can purchase a bottle of most (fermented pear cider) or freshly pressed poppy seed oil or a sack of organic potatoes directly from a farmer and take it home with you.
