Full description
Learn to cook Hungary's world-famous dishes with ingredients that you can buy anywhere at a half-day gourmet food tour and cooking class in Budapest.

First, shop for fresh produce in one of the traditional markets of the city center. Purchase ingredients that you can find anywhere in the world so that you can easily replicate the meal at home. Then, transfer to the kitchen for a Hungarian cooking class in a friendly workshop environment.

Cook in small groups for a more intimate experience, and more hands-on help from your chef and guide. Once you have prepared some traditional dishes, such as cottage cheese dumplings, taste traditional drinks such as pálinka (fruit brandy), Hungarian wine, and home-made elderberry syrup.

Get a better understanding of Hungarian cuisine from cooks who were all born and raised in Hungary. Hear about local traditions and customs first hand.
