In 2011, Bálint Gáspár and Bálint F Gyula entered the Saharun Adventure charity event, and African off-road car tour which has led to the foundation of the Vitéz Kürtős Team.

Further adventures followed; and with the help of the Vitéz Kürtős staff – those girls and boys you meet when you are visiting one of Vitéz Kürtős’ bakeries – these activities never stop.

They are now part of the team as well – whether taking part actively or supporting from a distance -, the mission is to pass the legacy of the chimney cake and the Transylvanian cuisine to the World through charities, travelling and by emphasizing the importance of sport and other sport related events.

Our tours come true with the support of the Vitéz Kürtős – it is an honour to be given the opportunity to share the name -, the brand that is not only offering the true chimney cake baked on live coals, but a special experience and a travel into the World of enticing tastes.
