You can experience this inimitable, authentic and captivating atmosphere during the creation of dödölle, onions, sour cream and bacon.
On the last day of the event, life starts at 10:45 on the Miele Main Stage with a presentation by Zoltán Andrejszky, who will show some unmissable dishes for fish lovers in particular.

From 13:15, ICON will dazzle you with a truly special fusion: a version of the Hungarian vadas will be prepared right in front of your eyes, with kimchi and yuzu.
The unconventional fine dining concept of ICON, combining open cuisine and top gastronomy, is the brainchild of chef Tamás Botos and restaurant manager Kristóf Szigeti. The main source of inspiration for ICON is the chef’s table, which is the most exclusive spot in many restaurants, often located in the restaurant’s kitchen. In this spirit, during dinner Tamás explains how and what is being prepared, every moment of the tasting menu can be followed by the restaurant’s visitors.
From 14:30, the Miele combi steamer will once again take center stage. We will close the day - and the event as well - with a fantastic gastronomic feast by Dávid Pallag, chef and owner of Rutin restaurant. The ambitious young chef appeared on the show Konyhafőnök in 2016, where he made it all the way to the final. Eventually, however, life brought him back to the micro-environment where he was raised in, and now he and his wife are focused on creating a genuine hospitality experience that reflects the values of their beloved area.
Sausage jam stuffed into crispy wonton noodles, light potato cream, charcoal roasted mangalica tenderloin medallion, plus a couple of routine twists, but let’s just call it Potato Noodles. This is how a one-person kitchen becomes a success story!
