But the highlight of our visit in Bran was tasting Kurtosh, after watching the vendors make it before our eyes. They started with dough rolled out like pizza dough, and this was wrapped on what looked kind of like a baseball bat. (Like they were taping up the wrong end of the baseball bat, but with dough.) This dough-on-a-bat they painted with either oil, watery butter, or just water and then sprinkled generously with sugar.
I found pictures of Kurtosh called "Chimney Cakes" so perhaps you have heard of them before. But I had never heard of or seen them before. They were doughy like donuts, quick like funnel cakes, but not fried in oil and had a very light sweet taste. Our friend Alex asked if we thought a business selling Kurtosh could work in the US. I assured him that there would be a ready market.
