A fish and game gastronomy festival and a village day were organized in Nyírmárton village. In addition to community building, the organizers strove to promote healthy ingredients. The program was held for the first time in the settlement in a tradition-creating manner.
The meat of several types of freshwater fish was added to the bowl, and after seasoning and thorough mixing, sausage was made from the raw materials. At the gastrofestival, those interested could taste a variety of fish dishes: some had fried bream, crucian carp and catfish in paprika flour, but fish juice was also on offer.
– It was about time to have one of these in the village. I’m a native of the village, I’ve been living here for almost 58 years, and I think that this is a very worthwhile endeavor – said István Nyári.
In addition to fish, the chefs also worked with game meat. In János Asztalos’ cauldron, for example, he cooked fallow deer stew with porcini mushrooms.
– It is important that it has bones and colored meat. Its role, on the one hand, is to give it its flavor, and on the other hand, the milk that comes out of it thickens the stew’s juice a little, and after boiling it – so that the bones and other things come out – we cook it together on a slow fire, he explained.
Participants from the surrounding settlements also came to the gastro festival. The program was organized for the first time in Nyírmártonfalva in a tradition-creating manner. They wanted to organize a community-building event, and besides, there is a tradition of hunting game here anyway due to the proximity of the Gúthi forest, said the mayor of the settlement.
– We have been preparing for this for a long time to bring something new to the village day programs and we think that we will organize a festival of fish and game dishes. We know a little advertising for healthy eating. We know that both fish and game are very healthy food – pointed out Mihály Filemon.
The prepared dishes were evaluated by a jury. The festival, which lasted until late at night, was enriched with accompanying programs.
