Hungarian "kürtőskalács" are hardly a household name in the US the way we've embraced crepes and churros, but trust us—they're every bit as delicious. Better known by their more pronounceable name, chimney cakes, these contemporary, tasty treats are a specialty at Secret Gourmet. Ideal for a Valentine's gift for a loved one, flaky dough is wrapped around a cone-shaped spit, brushed with butter and coated in flavorings, and then baked until crispy. Though they're typically a dessert in eastern Europe, Secret Gourmet offers them in savory as well as sweet flavors, and can be paired with wine or cheese. For lunch you can opt for the sesame and garlic or even Mexican style with cheese, corn, black olives, and chilies. You can also add fillings such as the cheese of the day or smoked turkey. Sweet options include classic cinnamon as well as pumpkin spice and a cocoa-nutella mix. These desserts can then be filled with ice cream and topped with chocolate chips for an especially decadent snack.
