I had started my career as a lawyer, but I soon switched to working in hospitality. My first boss had been Ferenc Gundel in Nemzeti and later his son was one of my students.

I think this is the most prestigious Hungarian hospitality award. I am very happy to have won it, because I worked hard all my life.

Just to name a few: László Kovács, Kálmán Kozma, Ákos Niklai, Gábor Budai, Péter Oláh and István Csucsi.

I prefer the oldschool style, the red and white chequered tablecloth: I like Tanyacsárda, Kistücsök, Biarritz and Alabárdos. //
