It was still a trend a few years ago for a catering business to address the issue of sustainability, it is now mandatory to integrate it into day-to-day operations.

PATRON: Everything about Hungarian rice—Cooking show and workshop on the past of Hungarian rice and its potential

Rice from the Körös Valley? In addition to the numerous wonders of the Carpathian Basin, the cultivated plant from Southeast Asia also found its place in the Hungarian Great Plain, and in the 18th century, it was grown on an area of 50,000 hectares. Today, this area has been reduced to just over 3,000 hectares, even though the climate is good.

Károly Valentinyi first met the rice plant in the 1980s and a lucky coincidence gave him the idea to start the business. In order to produce quality rice, they set up their own plant and in 2002, they started with rice processing. Valoryz products are also recognized internationally.

Fruzsina Valentinyi and her husband, chef Péter Várvizi, will introduce the participants to the Hungarian rice, its past, its potential and the right ways to prepare it in a workshop with a 10-person cooking show.
