The Polish Tourism Organisation (POT) recently invited Hungarian culinary celebrities Zsófia Mautner and András Jókuti to Poland. The theme of their visit, which lasted from 15 to 18 July, was culinary tourism in the Małopolska region.
Zsófia Mautner and András Jókuti, two well-known Hungarian food writers, came to Poland to explore the charms and flavours of Małopolska. The visitors regularly reported their adventures on social media. A full account of the trip will be published on the Hungarian language and market version of the National Tourism Portal: Lengyelorszag.travel. The Hungarian writers and TV personalities not only collected materials for posting on their media, but also took part in preparing a professional photo reportage. The photo material featuring the two guests will be used in the POT’s social media promotional campaign on the Hungarian market.
Zsófia Mautner is currently one of Hungary’s most popular culinary programme presenters. She has hosted MasterChef Junior and a daily culinary programme on the most popular Hungarian TV channel. She is also Hungary’s leading food writer, has run many culinary projects as well as publishing 15 cookbooks (including one in English that has been translated and released in Taiwan). She contributes to many food magazines (Magyar Narancs, Nők Lapja, BBC Good Food, among others). She is also famous for her spectacular career path: after a successful diplomatic career in Brussels, she switched to being a full-time culinary expert, launching the Chili & Vanília blog where she shares her passion for cooking and everything food-related. Zsófia’s popularity on the Hungarian market is comparable to Magda Gessler’s in Poland.

His multiple award-winning blog has turned him into an authority for Budapest’s restaurateurs and a respected expert within Hungary’s culinary culture.
