A love of home cooking has given a Hungarian woman from Whittle-le-Woods a tasty new business venture.

A Little Taste of Hungary was set up by Katalin Halmosi Clews along with fellow Hungarian Andrea Balogh.

They are looking forward to food festival, Hamper Llangollen, on October 20 and 21, as a springboard for their new business.

“We both enjoy cooking and we thought we would like to introduce Hungarian food to the UK,” said Katalin, 34, who arrived in the UK in 2001 to learn English and is married to local man Russell Clews.

Festival organiser Robert Price, said: “In addition to many favourites, we have lots of new exhibitors like A Little Taste of Hungary coming this year.

“As well as providing a showcase for our fine indigenous producers there will also be an international flavour.”

Andrea, who lives in Cheshire, said: “One of my favourite things in Hungary was chimney cakes and I thought I could sell them over here, but no one had ever heard of them.”

Although the food venture is part-time, mainly involving food festivals, Katalin and Andrea hope it will be the first step to owning their own restaurant.

Katalin was working as an au pair in Leeds when she met Russell, as a student at Leeds University.

Katalin, a trained dancer and one-time model is a teaching assistant in a Blackpool school for children with special needs.
