Agi helped my girlfriend and me cook the stuffed cabbage, sausage and potato soup, and sponge cake. They were delicious! She guided us through each step of the process and explained it according to our skill level. Wine and traditional bread with pork lard was served upon arrival.

We were late (don't ask) but this didn't faze her at all, we were met with a glass of pulinka and canapes and after a... More

This was the first thing we signed up for when we started planning our Eastern European trip. My husband and I were so excited and looked forward to it for months. And it was so worth the wait. We booked on line and handled all of the details via e-mail. This worked perfectly. Agi was prompt and detailed with instructions... More

We met Agi at the Great Market at 9AM and the next 6 hours were a blend of Hungarian delights. We tasted delicious foods in the market, saw hand made crafts, learned about the foods that make Hungarian cuisine unique. We visited all three floors of the market and experienced a part of Budapest that many tourists never see. Then... More

The cooking class managed to suit two people with differing levels of experience and enthusium for cooking-both of us learned new techniques and hints... More

We had an enchanting day with Agnes who met us in front of the Central Market at 9AM and explained all of the different foods available as we gathered the... More

We were a family of four, with a 24 year old son and 14 year old daughter. We got back from Budapest a few weeks ago but wanted to share how much we enjoyed this cooking class. Agi had all the ingredients ready for us when we arrived at her lovely home. We met her husband and toddler, who were... More
