Kayaking from the Black Forest to the Black Sea... Who`s up for it?

2014. június 7.

The Duna (Danube) 2860 charity tour has just begun. Over the next month and half, the Vitez Kurtos Team will paddle through the Danube, and they will treat the locals for a nice chimney cake every evening. Three members started the journey, but we are looking for more, brave, chimney cake lover rowers...who`d be willing to join the team so together they can make it to the Delta.

This year`s humanitarian campaign of Vitez Kurtos is also a real task, to kayak 2860km from the Black Forest to the Black Sea. This is a new sort of adventure for the team, the first time they try to take on the water. The purpose of this new experience was not only to promote the Transylvanian- Hungarian treasure, the chimney cake, but to be able to provide a lifesaving defibrillator to a small, abandoned town in the Delta.

The two founders of the Vitez Kurtos Team (Gaspar Balint and Gyula F Balint) have begun training about a month ago. Whether they are ready, it`s a good question, but one thing is sure, they have started. They are planning on going from Dunauschingen to Budapest for the first stage, where they will be joined by an honorary member of the team (Attila Donka), who will join with his partner on a certain distance. A car follows them, and a cameraman is recording their every move to capture beautiful images and document the tour. A few more members of the Vitez Kurtos Team will hop on their bikes and follow them at times, at first on the Vienna-Budapest stage.

If all goes as planned, the boys will arrive to Budapest on the 20th of June; we will ceremonially hand over the defibrillator at the Kopaszi-gat. The bay will be the place for a press conference, too, and will be the time for another team member to get back into the kayak again. You are all welcome to join us on this day to support our team, as we will be baking tasty, “celebratory” chimney cakes.

Due to this adventure being such a long-distance tour, we are looking for those venturous, experienced kayakers, who`d be willing to swap seats with our core team members at certain stages. Of course, anyone could join the tackle at any point, either by boat, kayak or even by bicycle. Support will come handy for our “gallants” (Vitez), on their first ever kayak tour. They will also bake the tasty chimney cake everywhere they stop - the Bake`n`Roll chimney cake baking set will be an important accessory – and will treat all who comes along.

If you think you`re adventurous enough and would be willing to take part in this journey - let`s not forget about eating all those lovely chimney cakes, too - then do not hesitate to contact us!

Please, send us your cover letter with an image of yourself to info@vitezkurtos.hu. The deadline is 15th of June.

Hope to hear from you soon and let`s support the boys!

We don`t have to wait anymore for the Sekler Cake Festival, if we want some desert specialties made of Sekler Cake, because the `Édes Mackó` Pastry Shop was opened in the middle of May, where we prepare all kinds of earthy and heavenly delicacies made with charcoal baked Sekler Cake, just like the well known Kürtős Bearing and Creamy Kürtős, but we also have some new specialties, like the Kürtős pudding, the Floating Island with Kürtős Chunks or the Cream of wheat with Kürtős chunks. Hm! Prepare your taste buds for something really cool!
