The forecast all week held out the prospect of rain, but again we were fortunate with the weather as 100 guests descended on the wine village of Etyek for the RBIF’s 3rd Annual BBQ on 30 August 2020.
With plenty of space for kids to run around the venue is the perfect location to relax as the summer draws to a close, and we were certainly well looked after.
Paul Mizener and his team at the Chefparade cooking school had been preparing the food for up to 48 hours in some cases, and this was evident in the range of delicious meats they put on: BBQ spare ribs, chicken thighs prepared in the smoker, burnt end chili, amazing fillet steak, and the ever-popular BBQ pulled pork, accompanied by coleslaw, pickles and potatoes..
And if that were not enough, at the end we were able to enjoy Paul’s famous brownie, you need to taste it to believe it.
But it wasn’t all about the food, once again we enjoyed the support of the Etyeki Kúria Winery, who popped over from their neighbouring estate and allowed us to taste some great wines, the Pláne Frizzante White, the Kúria Rose, and the Kúria Red, all perfectly suited to the weather and the food.
Sponsors’ help is crucial
Events like the BBQ don’t fund themselves, so we were very grateful for the help of Mike Glover and his team at Taxually (“VAT compliance has never been easier”), whose generous offer of sponsorship enabled us to hold this year’s event. We raised almost HUF 200,000 which will be put towards our projects in 2021.
We were fortunate to be able to organise the BBQ against the background of COVID-19 and all the complications it brings, and fingers crossed we will see you all again in January for the Burns Supper at the Corinthia Hotel.
