PODCAST: Budapest, the ever-changing big city. How can a catering business grow with its environment?
Budapest, as every lively city, is changing all the time, new places open, others close. Entrepreneurs’ needs are changing, as do consumers and trends. Places that connect to the present moment of a city are usually sustainable. Urbanistic professionals are crucial, and the transformation of individual neighborhoods also has an impact on the life of the gastronomic units.
In our 7th episode, we covered this with Bori Koniorczyk, owner and founder of Hosszúlépés. Járunk? and Normafa delikát, and Dávid Vitézy, CEO of Budapest Development Center and acting General Director of Hungarian Museum of Science, Technology and Transport.
VIDEO: Conscious meals for kids—how to make them like the debatable veggies
One of the most challenging tasks in gastronomy is feeding children every day. According to Dóra Havas, good eating habits can only be developed by parents in a carefully planned way, and most importantly, we have to set a good example.
The food blogger uses debatable vegetable, broccoli, to show how a flavor can be so varied when presented in a different texture and new form. When introducing a taste to a child, experts say it can take up to nine times to get them to like it. It takes the same patience to experiment to raise a conscious and healthy eating adult.

WORKSHOP: CREATE—How to develop your style—Workshop on gastrophotography and food styling with HYPEANDHYPER
Looks aren’t everything, but we know we eat with our eyes first—be it the cover of a cooking magazine, a commercial or tasting plates of a pop-up event, the visuality of the food should be well considered and unique.
