We’ll take pleasure in the meal of our long-gone ancestors once again during the II. year of Castle Spoon Festival. Taking place on the premises of Cassovia Castle, or Castle of Košice, it will open its gates to all of those ready to present period recipes – some of them might actually be more than 500 years old. The event is for everyone willing to try and taste something from the past and learn about its preparation. Contestants will need to use period ingredients and prove the recipe’s authenticity via documentation.
Ancient winery traditions awakened in the form of Košice Wine Festival. Wine tasting competitions, folk-clothed staff and relaxing atmosphere boosting the archaeological spot of Dolná brána and complemented by some more at Katova bašta and Rodošto. Tasting till early morning in locals bars, cellars and all the other activities are what defines Košice during the Wine Festival as the gate entrance into the wine region of Tokaj.
After successful attendance at previous occasions, there comes its fifth volume devoted to street style meals – Street Food Festival fans will again get a chance to submerge into various delicacies from Slovak, Czech and Polish chefs. The diversity of sweet, salty, carnivore, vegetarian, traditional or exotic flavours will swamp through your taste buds. Don’t hesitate to order from traditional burgers, Belgian fries, hot dogs, Tibetan pierogi, Japanese soups, Mexican cuisine, falafel, kofta, waffles, zapiekanki and more.
The aim of Black Day warmup is to bring specialty coffee closer to a local audience of Košice and to show the alternative methods of its preparation. Black Day won’t encompass only that, though – it’ll illustrate how gradually widening coffee lovers community has spread throughout the city. Plenty of cuppings, workshops, lectures and discussions will set the mood for its participants. The warmup should somehow serve as the pre-main event taking place two weeks later. Only then will the whole city completely dive into specialty coffee magic at numerous spots of Košice.
