I traveled to Budapest with my two twenty something nieces, we had a wonderful time and this class was certainly one of the highlights. Andrew was personable and great fun, the four hours flew by. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed the company and knowledge of Andrew on our market tour and cookery class. The market is excellent and we thorough enjoyed the cookery with Andrew. What a fun and pleasurable way to spend a day in Budapest.

We did not have time to do the full market tour as well as the cooking class so just opted to do the evening cooking class with Andrew. It was fantastic - I would definitely say a must do whilst in Budapest for a really different experience for an evening meal and a great edition to log for dinner parties... More

Definitely agree with the reviews that say not to eat breakfast, as we were too full to completely enjoy all the nibbles during the 9am market tour. We had a great time learning about the various meats, vegetables and spices that we purchased. I personally enjoyed the wine, while Andrew and my husband did most of the preparation - and... More

I would highly recommend the market tour and cookery class! We met Andrew at the central market where we walked around as he explained all about the market, local produce and traditional Hungarian dishes. I would strongly advise skipping breakfast before the market tour as the food and nibbles we tried at the market were wide ranging and very filling.... More

We met at the market sharp on time, and enjoyed a "sampling breakfast" until we wanted no more. Definitely: don't have breakfast before. The visit to the Central Market is optional, but it is highly recommendable. We then cooked at Agnes' home, with Andras, and we had a great time. We enjoyed every minute of it. It is an expensive...

Our 4-hour cooking class with Andrew was fantastic!! We were able to sample (and helped create) some traditional Hungarian dishes. The dishes were simple to prepare; hearty Goulash & Chicken Paprika along with some very tasty crepes for dessert. All the dishes were extremely tasty...best to show up hungry! The added bonus was the 'flavor' Andrew added to our experience.... More

Today my husband and I had a wonderful day learning about Hungarian cooking! Our chef and tour guide, Andrew, was a delight! He showed us all around the food market and treated us to many different types of typical Hungarian food. We shopped for our ingredients and walked around all the souvenir shops. We then took a taxi to the... More

We signed up for this cooking class with our 3 young adult sons who originally weren't thrilled about it. We all agreed that it turned out to be one of the best activities we did in Budapest. Andrew and Istvan ran the class and not only did we learn how to make goulash soup, chicken paprika, spätzle, and apple cake,... More
