Now we're talking!! Tired of the excessively "touristic" spots? Take the class! I've been travelling around and was a little bit tired of castles, monuments, walls, churches, etc. and decided to take a break from all that and do something really "local". It was quite a surprise to get inside someone else's home, take a chair, chat and cook! It... More

My boyfriend and I were traveling to Budapest and were looking for some unique things to do that would give us a little more insight into the culture. the BF is more of a cook than I am and he found this cooking class/tour here on trip advisor. I must admit, I was not thrilled at the prospect since I... More

My fourteen year old son and I took a class with Agi and Andrew in June. Emails were answered quickly and thoroughly. Arranging the class was painless and Agi was always happy to answer any questions. The directions to the class location were accurate and easy to follow. Agi and Andrew were great teachers and had us happily cooking and... More

After reading about Culinary Hungary on Trip Advisor, I emailed an inquiry. I heard back quickly from Agi and began to make arrangements for our group of six. (I had also sent an inquiry for several tours and another cooking class, but didn't hear back from them for 4-6 days.) From the market tour to cooking with Agi and Andrew... More

I spent most of my career working internationally, have experienced a multitude of cuisines and love to cook. Now that I’m retired I continue to travel extensively to Europe and always book a cooking class in the various regions of any country I visit. Having never been to Hungary the brief class I had with Chefparade in Budapest was one... More

Our cooking class with Agi was a totally enjoyable experience. We met her at her flat and we then walked to the local market to buy what we needed to cook. For additional cost she will take you on a tour of the Central Market, but we felt this local market was actually more realistic since it's where she shops... More

My husband found Anges and Andrew via Tripadvisor and our family of 4 (including two teenagers aged 13 and 15) had a fantastic day. They were on time, took us on a personalized tour of the very clean Budapest market, bought our supplies (as well as some tourist trinkets - they were VERY patient) and headed off to Agnes' apartment...

We did the market tour and cooking class with Agnes and Andrew. The Market Tour involved sampling palinka (at 9 am!), langos, and several other Hungarian items. After the tour and buying a few items needed for our meal, we went to Agnes' apartment and started cooking. We make Fruit soup, catfish paprikas, and sponge cake. We enjoyed cooking and... More

We started with a little Palinka for "breakfast" und afterwards tried Langos and wonderful "potpourri" of different typical Hungarian dishes including... More

If you enjoy meeting local people and learning about their culture and way of life you have to take this class. My friends and I had three days to spend in Budapest and we wanted to do something really unique to learn more about Hungarian culture. We found Agi here on Trip Advisor and were lucky enough that she was... More
