Very entertaining and enjoyed a lovely piece of strudel & hot drink. Took quite a long time for the show to get under way by the time everyone was given strudel & a drink so allow more time in case you have a slot to visit the palace.

This was a really fun activity. The chef was very friendly and extremely entertaining. He was very keen to share his knowledge, I'll definitely be trying the recipe that he gave us. The Apfelstrudel itself tasted lovely!

A really great event. The two on site carried out the event with a lot of passion and joy. There was an opportunity to ask questions. And the apple strudel is heavenly :)

The show was amazing. The Apfelstrudel was so tasty, it matched perfectly with the hot coffee. Will definitely recommend!

It was super-fun, quite informative, and maybe most of all delicious!
