Hi, Zsolt here, this is my first post on the blog. Those who know me also know that i love coffee. Perhaps a bit too much – like on the level of addiction.
As warm summer days arrive, what could be better than listening to live music with friends – and perhaps a glass of chilled Furmint – at outdoor concerts?

Today is a day of celebration – the 3rd birthday of the much-loved Tokaj-Hegyalja market. Dreamed up and brought into being by seven women passionate about good, local food and crafts, this monthly artisan market has become a firm fixture in the wine region’s diary. A popular meeting place for locals, and a treat for visitors who discover a whole array of foods and crafts made lovingly in the Tokaj wine region.
I’m delighted our region has a whole range of markets from traditional town markets that have existed for centuries to recently established farmers’ markets and artisan gatherings, and flea/antique markets sales to a couple of producers at an event.
