1. What’s your favourite family tradition during this period of the year?
I love cooking together with my husband. My task is the fish soup, but I forget every year how it’s made. 😀 (traditional Hungarian recipe, part of the Christmas Eve menu – LBC)

2. The Xmas song that puts you in the mood for the holiday season?
We are always listening to Phil Collins.

3. What does the Xmas period mean to your chocolate business?
Luckily many people find us to get their presents. It can get stressful to get ready with everything, but it is still the best period of the year.

Day 7 – ChocoCard

Iza and Zoli have built a lovely little chocolate factory next to their home in Albertkázmérpuszta right next to the Austro-Hungarian border. They welcome visitors who want to understand how chocolate is made from bean-to-bar and look behind the scenes of a small-batch chocolate factory. 

1. What’s your favourite family tradition during this period of the year?
These questions are a bit hard for me. Since we are working with chocolate it got a bit harder to get into the Christmas spirit because we are so busy. And as Zoli used to work in pyrotechnology we still sell fireworks for New Years Eve, so it changes everything during Christmas-time too. 

2. The Xmas song that puts you in the mood for the holiday season?
Jingle Bells and Last Christmas, but really only for a few moments, and then we go on.
