Chili Hungária Manufaktúra

Written by Chili Hungária Manufaktúra Owner László

It all started in 2010 I saw the first Jamaican pepper during internet browsing in work time. I instantly knew that I needed this. A few days later I ordered the seeds. Unfortunately, it was June already, so the production really began in 2011. The diversity of peppers caught me. I hadn’t seen before such unique shapes and colors in peppers. 

I thought this is a market gap in Hungary, where even a relatively small capital can catch the market. The fact that I want to deal with this was immediately decided when the ’encounter’ happened.  Twenty-five years of continuous work in responsible positions was quite hard on my nerves, so I was consciously looking for the opportunity when I can become independent. It even seemed a bit romantic and a bit even exotic.

Our product range features several hot sauces from very mild to the devastating Merciful Death. In addition to the traditional red sauces, we also make the Green Knight and the Yellow Storm. 

The newest member of the Product range is the 424 and the Hab’n’go. The 424 is a smokey hot sauce. It was named after a famous Hungarian steam locomotive. The other new product is the Hab'n'go. It's a habanero compote with mango. It's spicy, fruity and has a vanilla-like taste.

Cottage Lane Kitchen Story

November 03, 2021

Cottage Lane Kitchen was founded by me in 2010, and it isn't only my business name, but also refers to a secret lane in Chapel Hill, NC where our family homestead was built in the 1950s. Four generations of my family have cooked and preserved spicy peppers out of love and tradition in that kitchen.

The last homemade batch of my family's spicy pepper relish was made by my Grandfather in the early 1990s. He grew chilies around the outside of the house and harvested and pickled them during my summer visits. I remember him watering the empty tin cans he buried beside each pepper plant.
