WAMP Spájz & Design Fair, Budapest, 27 October
WAMP returns to Hall D of Millenáris this Sunday. On October 27, the organizers are holding a gastro and design fair with an upbeat atmosphere, featuring the work of some 50 designers, with a focus on the connection between gastronomy and design. Beyond the mouth-watering, hand-made foods, designer accessories and cool clothes, we await visitors with a wide selection of events, beautifully set tables and interactive presentations. In addition, a lucky visitor to WAMP this Sunday will win a dinner for two people to the Michelin star Costes restaurant and the first 500 visitors will receive a seasoning mix prepared by Fűszeres for the event as a gift.

In the gastro selection, you will find hand-made foods that can be consumed on the spot in addition to the beautifully packaged delicacies that hold their own as design objects, as well. The gastro selection will include herbal and spicy honey specialities, fine teas, syrups, fruit juices, jams, biscuits, chocolates, speciality items enriched with truffle, high quality hams and speciality beers brewed by Főzdebusz. A few exhibitors will offer unique china items and kitchen utensils with a special design.

To complement the fair and the usual food tasting opportunities, two beautifully styled, laid tables will await visitors, which demonstrate the close connection between design and gastronomy with two very different styles: one of the tables will exemplify natural styling, with natural foods in inspirational setting, while the other table will feature desserts with some unexpected, eye-catching styling.

There will be interactive presentations and discussions held in the afternoon, with gastro experts talking about their brand, sharing their experiences and plans, even revealing some secrets of the trade. One of the guests, Fanni Sally, creator of the recently opened Cake Shop will talk about the concept of her store, where customers can see the process of making the cakes and they can even participate in the last phase. Nikolett Szökrön, the owner of GelARTo, well-known for their exquisite ice-cream will talk about healthy ingredients and will also explain why you should visit the ice-cream parlour in the winter season, too. Tibor Szántó, who perhaps knows the most about cocoa beans in Hungary will provide us with a glimpse into the wonderful world of hand-made chocolates.

The barista of the Fekete café will reveal the secrets of really good espresso and will tell us how to make truly perfect coffee. Restaurant Day is a civil initiative, whose aim is to make Budapest more liveable and to strengthen community projects. The main idea is that anybody can test their cooking skills by opening their own restaurant for a day, in their own apartment, if they wish. Eszter Bircsák and Melinda Sipos will share their experiences with WAMP visitors. Panna Balázsy will talk about the concept of the brand new pop-up restaurant, Globalista Konyha and will present this type of eateries by showing many examples.

The discussions will start at 3.00 p.m. and will be moderated by Dóra Havas, the author of the Lila Füge gastroblog.

People who arrive with children will have plenty of things to do as well. The Cerkabella publisher will present their brand new volume entitled Tejbegríz, which is an anthology of literature for children and cookbook in one. The recipes to match the writings of contemporary authors were written by Zsófia Mautner and Zita Kismarty-Lechner created the adorable illustrations. The Bilimbo activity centre will await our youngest visitors while older children can make hair bands and bracelets from old T-shirts with Éva magazine and Recreativity. Entry to WAMP costs 500 HUF, the total amount of which can be used for purchases.
