Our Story

What started as a wandering journey in Budapest ended up helping us to name our project. Utca means street in Hungarian and it was the only word we could remember when we got lost in the center of that beautiful city

We learned to love the chimney cakes first, and we decided to share this passion with our community. To do it right, we were trained in Budapest and became members of a great global network of chimney cake lovers
