Photographer's Note

Taken at the Jelly Festival (like my previous picture), but he is definitely not a jelly huckster. His stand is a so called 'lacikonyha', which mean 'Leslie's kitchen.' According to the legend they are named after Ulászló II (~ Leslie II), an indulgent Hungarian king of the 15th century, who as a result of his unsuccessful policy became so poor that he couldn't allow a royal household and regularly ate at these kind of hucksters. True, he was not our best king, but that is going too far. The more likely explanation is that back in the old times at the beginning of summer (after László day) the kitchen was temporarily placed to a so called summer kitchen (mostly a shed next to the house) in the rural areas. They did so in order to save them selves from smoke and heat in the house.
