A word from our chef...
Michelin starred Chef Akos Sarkozi from Budapest’s Borkonyha (Wine Kitchen) is renowned for his no-frills style cooking, stripping down heavy Hungarian dishes to their definitive flavours.
Borkonyha is a stylish Bistro in the heart of the City and only the third restaurant to receive a Michelin Star in Budapest. The cuisine is based on fresh, daily purchased ingredients and it’s dishes are described by the Michelin Guide as “well executed, with an elaborate modern style and subtle Hungarian influences”.
“When I prepare a dish, I always think in terms of colours and vision. I aspire to show the beauty of food to my guests," says Sarkozi.
"I lead a kitchen with lots of flavours. However, if I had to define just one style I would say "free". By “free”, I mean that I do not like being put into a certain category. I get inspired by the gastronomy of Transylvania, but my dishes are infused with touches of influence from around the world, such as France, Italy or the Far East.”
