Prize

Day of Alfonz in Hungary. Comes from the German and means: noble.
Szamos
Have you ever heard about Szamos Marcipán? One box of this tasty sweet stuff will be the prize in the point collecting competition. You all who participate will know more about Hungary and Budapest and one of yours (who collects the most points) will get a package with a box of original Szamos Marzipan from me!:)
Ok and the question of the day (the comments/answers will be visible only next day):
What is the full name of mr. Szamos who created most of the recipes of recent Szamos products?

More info on Szamos Marcipán where maybe you can find your way to the right answer is here.:)

I believe his name is Matyas Szamos. Thanks for the very informative description of Marzipan.

How about Auguszt E. Jozsef??

Colourful wrappers, and I'd bet that the confection inside is even better!!

Kris said...

fun! my entry is "Matyas". Hope I get the spelling right,because I forget easily :)

A friend loves the marcipán, she always praise how good it tastes. But I havent been tempted to try since my sweet tolerant is low. If i win, it will be a great first ;D

yummy, these Mladen Szavits Marcipans look very tempting. last november i went to Hamburg and tried apparently the most famous marzipan in the world 'Niederegger' and by the look at that box of yours Szamos are in the same league =)

have a good week.

Vanessa said...

Hi! This is Vanessa from Jakarta..... and thank you for this great quiz! I've always thought that marzipan came from Belgium (cause that's where I ate it for the first time!)... Anyway, I checked out the website and it's quite confusing but I think the answer is: Mladen Szavits!

my dear Visitors!
Thank you for the attention you pay for my country by taking part in this little game:)

The question was tricky because mr. Szamos had two name as he changed it from his original Serbian Mladen Szavits to the Hungarian Szamos Mátyás (in Hungary the family name comes first and then the "firstname"). I accept both answers.

Santy..I am so happy that you are back! I am glad you like my Indonesia site..to me its a big pleasure to publish my photos there bringing me back to your wonderful country in a way.
