We had an interesting phonecall from CNN International in December describing their show - Destination: Budapest.We were informed that they would like to show special winter activities in Budapest, so a crew would join us for a truffle hunting tour. They would be happy if a Michelin starred chef joined us too. So we invited the starred Eszter Palágyi and the star-awaiting János Mizsei for a hunting tour. We would like to say thank you for CNN for making such a good image film on Budapest, it was our pleasure to guide you in the forests!

“The price of this exceptional truffle does not correspond to the market price, which this year is around €350 for 100 gram,” the event’s spokeswoman told AFP.
