My husband took a cooking class, while I was on a bird watching expedition. He took the market tour also and he was the only one, so it was a very personalized tour. He and Agi, the leader and cooking instructor, discussed foods and recipes...More

Had a very enjoyable morning learning from Cecelia about Hungarian cuisine. We cooked a three-course meal, all very hands-on and fun. There was a simplicity to the dishes that surprised us, but the end result was very tasty!
