So many goodies. Savoury
And sweet. Cake sold by weight. A fabulous idea so you can buy as much or as little as you want. And they have samples out for tasting!
But most of the aroma came from these beauties. A traditional Hungarian pastry called Kurtoskalács.
They make them to order. It's an intriguing process. They roll out a piece of pastry into a long strip, the wrap it round a large mould like a rolling pin- you can see some in the back of the photo if you can manage to look beyond the pastries displayed...
They are then coated in oil and sugar (I didn't say they would be good for you) and then baked in a special oven. The big rolling pin moulds are inside and those are handles of the rolling pins sticking out of the machine. You can glimpse some kurtosh baking inside. After they're cooked they roll the warm pastries in the topping of your choice- sugar and cinnamon, most nuts.
Sadly we really were too full that day to try anything, but I had another recent trip to Sydney and I made certain that we made it to Kurtosh primed to partake and I'm so glad we did! This time we went to the Randwick store.
Our group managed to select most of the flavours. Naturally I got pistache...
I believe this is my sister's Nutella version. She even shared...
It turns out that one each is a bit much, so I'd suggest sharing. But not surprisingly they're all really good. It's so sad that it will be some time before my next visit.
