I arrange the shopping before the class, or we can do it together if you claim the Market tour.
We’ll meet you at the main entrance to the Central Market Hall, which is the biggest and the most famous indoor market in Budapest and attracts shoppers for its spaciousness and architectural decor. Everything from meat through spices to vegetables and souvenirs is available here in the most beautiful, largest and richest market of Budapest. We select the ingredients for your cooking class.
We cook a complete Hungarian meal: soup, main course and dessert. Menu is subject of discussion.
After cooking we eat the meals together and informally explore Hungarian culture, folklore and customs and traditions.
Maximum number of guests is 4. Just large enough for a small group of friends but small enough to get personal attention.
The price includes:
-All the ingredients necessary for the class;
-Preparation of a 3 course meal ;
-Welcome palinka and soft drinks;
Market tour: 30 EUR / person
Wine tasting: 50 EUR / 1-4 persons

"We had a great time at your house. The recipes were all tasty and well planned. For us one of the best things was not only the cooking of some traditional Hungarian recipes, but getting to chat to you and your friends about life in Hungary which made it more than just a lesson in cooking. Something else we really enjoyed was getting to try some of the Hungarian styles of wine. We had bought a couple of bottles in the city and they were terrible so we were happy that we got to taste some good quality examples which left us with a much better impression of Hungarian wines/spirits!" – Chris and Callan from Australia
