Full Tour Description

The art of Hungarian cooking arises from old traditional ways with origins of the first settles of the Carpathian basin. Our cooking course will walk you through the fine ingredients our ancestors used many millenniums before on a short visit to the market hall. Here you'll get a chance to browse with the help of our guide and look over the foods we use for the base of many Hungarian meals.

After you market visit you get a hands-on Hungarian cooking courses giving you the opportunity to cook a Hungarian meal. Along the course you be able to learn and ask questions while cooking side-by-side with our Chefs. They will show you how Hungarians use basic ingredients and spices like paprika and teach you the best cooking practices. Once you mastered this you'll be able to treat your family and friends to a fantastic Hungarian dinner in your home country! After you have cooked the 3 course meal you sit down with everyone in your group and enjoy the fine meal you just created!

Our typical Hungarian menu is similar to this with fluctuation on seasonal ingredients and or diets (vegetarians and other special diets are welcomed)

- A creamy fruit soup such as sour cherry soup (warmer weather) OR a vegetable soup such as creamy potato soup with or without Hungarian sausage bits

- Chicken paprikás OR for our non-meat eaters Mushroom paprikás with "nokedli" which are homemade dumplings, yes you make these too!

- Dessert is always something very sweet since Hungarians love sweet things and will be something like a Somlói galuska ( chocolate+ vanilla cream sponge cake) OR Hungarian palacsinta (pancake) OR Sweet cottage cheese balls.

Jó étvágyat! (bon appétit!)
