Budapest Culinary & Wine Walk

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Budapest's first food tour (est. 2008!) introduces Hungarian food and wine culture through classic flavors, unique wines, history, and stunning architecture. You'll get a taste of the traditional side of Hungarian cuisine, and the modern artisan producers and specialty shops spicing up Budapest’s food scene. Beginning at the Central Market—Budapest’s cathedral of food—we’ll introduce you to Hungarian cuisine through the abundance of ingredients. We'll discuss the building, Hungary's eating and drinking culture, special dishes … and just what Hungarian cooks do with all the pork fat, paprika, and goose liver. Here we’ll taste a selection of foods (and have an aperitif to fortify us). After a lunch feast at a traditional butcher, we’ll sample the elegant cakes that Hungarian bakers are known for at a classic coffeehouse. We'll visit an award-winning chocolatier, and finish with a sommelier led tasting of 3 great local wines (including Tokaji aszú) paired with artisan cheese. Come hungry!

What to Expect
Meet your group of no more than six fellow food-lovers inside the city's Central Market Hall, ground zero for all things culinary in Budapest. With your gourmand guide leading the way, you'll head straight for the best stalls while listening to an introduction to Hungarian cuisine.
Strike out into the surrounding neighborhood for stops at an artisan chocolate shop, a coffee house, a kosher bakery, a spice shop, or other options, depending on the day. Your small group size makes it possible to ask your guide questions and focus on learning everything you ever wanted to know about Hungarian cuisine.
Sample traditional Hungarian dishes and authentic cakes during a shared meal, and finish with a Hungarian wine tasting. The guided tasting will teach you about the country's varietals, regions, and winemaking styles.
Your tour concludes at the tasting venue.

A private tour would be you and your companions and a public tour would be open to anyone else who wanted to do the tour.

There was definitely a lot of meat on the tour. I’m not sure you’d get a lot out of it as a vegetarian.

We took this tour last summer when temps were sky-high, and it was not a problem. That said, there are stairs (Hungary is not especially wheelchair-friendly) and you walk - slowly - about a total of 2 km. Stops along the way... More
