What to expect on your Market Food Tour & Hungarian Cooking Class?
The market food tour combines a stroll through all 3 floor levels, guiding you through a food section, with opportunities for tastings, and a non-food section both of which embody the rich Hungarian heritage and culture that is expressed through foods and artifacts such as embroidery, porcelain, clothing and the arts & crafts.
Taste a mouth-watering array of foods such as lángos, beef stew, potato paparikash, chocolate, strudel and much more, picking up fresh ingredients for your Hungarian cooking class and enjoying the visual feast of goods laid out for sale. Along the way you will experience a unique slice of Budapest’s one-of-a-kind culinary culture.
After the tour we head to our lovely apartment on the Buda side for your private hands-on cooking class.
The cooking lesson lasts around 4 hours while you will learn how to make the traditional Hungarian dishes, you prepare 3 recipes from start to finish. The menu is subject of discussion. After cooking we eat the meals together.
