Kurtos kalatas , chimney cake , skoorsteen koek - Cape Town

We will be posting photos from every event we do.  We have built a charcoal/wood braai (barbeque)that we will use for the very big events. This Braai (barbeque) ensures the authentic Hungarian taste of kurtos kalaks (chimney cake). This is the way it has been made for 100's of years. We have built a gas oven for smaller events and for our unique South African products we will be introducing shortly. At most events we would probable use both ovens.

Your taste buds will be excited by our new combinations of savoury cheese and boerewors / cheese griller. 

Below is a photo of our charcoal braai. (Back view)

Here are some photos of our equipment we have manufactured. Stainless steel counter with a solid rosewood top.

What is Chimney Cake?

It is a traditional Hungarian Transylvanian pastry dish which can be either Sweet or Savoury, cooked in a unique way for hundreds of years. Its origins come from Transylvania, a historical region in present day Romania.  It is also famous as Hungary's oldest pastry where it is also know as Kürtos Kalács. 

It has a crispy crust while inside the dough is fluffy and soft and can be topped with an ingredient of your choice like Chocolate, Coconut, Almonds & Walnuts, Cinnamon, Hundreds and Thousands, Cheese & olive oil.  In addition to the traditional Hungarian favourites, we have added a true South African twist – try our Cheese and Biltong, or Cheese, Biltong and Cheese Griller/boerewors to experience South African flavour Chimney Cake!
