40  /  the tasting panel  /  january/february 2018 TRAVELING T he Hungarian capital may be vibrant and beautiful throughout the year, but it definitely holds a particular charm in the winter. The streets are dressed in glistening lights and the alluring scent of roasted chestnuts, cinnamon- flavoured chimney cakes, and mulled wine fills the air as Budapest residents head outdoors to visit the exciting attractions their city offers. Regardless of the frigid temperatures, tourists will find it's definitely worth bundling up and leaving their hotel room to explore the city center of the Hungarian capital. Start by taking a stroll on the illuminated Andrássy Avenue, with its line of trees covered in sparkling fairy lights. And while many of the win- ter bazaars have already taken place at this point in the season, visitors in future years can wander the rows of wooden stalls brimming with a colorful variety of Hungarian merchandise, including ceramics, uniquely-designed clothes, jewelry, candles, toys, and other handcrafted products. Freshly-roasted and baked delica- cies are also sold at the various food stalls, offering passersby a chance to gorge on Hungarian specialities like goulash or spicy sausages.
