Experience

Highlights
  • Enjoy a hands-on baking course and prepare 4 strudels from beginning to end together with a local professional chef

  • Taste your delicious strudels, as well as other typical Hungarian bites
  • Recreate the strudels at home with included family recipes
Full description
Delight in a 2.5-hour hands-on culinary experience making traditional strudels in a small group. Bake 4 different strudels — 3 sweet and 1 salty — and enjoy tasting the fruits of your labor together afterward.

Make your way to the local partner's private apartment in the center of Budapest. With your professional chef, discover the history of the strudel, a typical Habsburg Empire dessert whose origins can be traced to the Turkish influence in Hungary. Learn about the dessert's importance to wedding dinners in the countryside, as well as about wider Hungarian cuisine, customs, and everyday life.

Then, delight in learning the local partner's mother's recipe, which makes the stretched version of the strudel. Stretch the elastic pastry by hand until it is very thin, under your chef's guidance. Fill your strudels with typical fillings — such as poppy-seed with pumpkin, sweet or salty cabbage, and sweet cottage cheese cream — and then put them in the oven to bake. 

While you wait, taste some other typical Hungarian bites and enjoy some Palinka (fruit brandy), Hungarian wine, soft drinks, mineral water, tea, or coffee. When your strudels are ready, sit down and savor them together with your group. Finally, take the recipes home with you so you can recreate the strudels for your family and friends.
