Learning how to properly use and cook with paprika was only one if the many highlights of the class. Our walk thru the market was interesting and informative. Agi was wonderful at leading us thru several traditional dishes. It was one if the best cooking classes I've taken on a vacation.

We had such a great time touring the Central Market with Agi and cooking too! She went above and beyond altering our menu to satisfy my vegetarian diet but allowing my husband to enjoy meat dishes too. It was very interesting to visit a local apartment, immerse in the culture and spend a day shopping and cooking, just beware of... More

My sister and I took this cooking class together and it was our favorite thing we did the whole trip. Agi was very nice and explained things thoroughly as we went along. She was able to put together a delicious vegetarian menu for us of vegetable ragu, potato paprika and cottage cheese calls for dessert. Everything was so delicious! We... More

We had a short time in Budapest, but read so many wonderful things about the cooking class wee decided it was a "must do." We were not disappointed. Agi and Andrew took us on a wonderful tour of the market and introduced us to many of the items we would be using in the dishes. We noshed on items from... More

The welcome from Agi and Andrew was amazing. They opened their home and instructions were superb. I was born in Budapest but never learned the fine art of cooking Hungarian foods. It was the best morning I have spent, I was instructed with clarity and much humour. English was spoken if required. I learned a lot and enjoyed the fruits... More

I have just returned from an amazing European trip with my hubby and our best friends and during our time in beautiful Budapest we booked a cooking class with Agi, as I have a small home-based food business in Australia (Canefields Kitchen) and wanted to learn how to cook some Hungarian food from the experts. Agi was on holiday so... More

My sister and I took this cooking class last month and we were really pleased! Agnes wasn't available so Andrew hosted our class in Agnes' flat and he did a great job of teaching/engaging us and is quite the conversationalist on many topics and he is also well travelled. All this really contributed to a great cultural immersion! Highly recommended.

I grew up eating Hungarian, but never did learn how to really make it taste like home. Books help, but nothing beats hands on learning from people who know and enjoy what they are doing. This was our third cooking class with Agnes and Andrew. And, it won't be the last. The best thing about our experience is that it... More

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
