We opted for the market tour and cookery class combined. The market tour gave us a chance to sample a variety of different foods and to shop for the ingredients we used in the cookery class. The cookery class itself was good. The instruction was good, and we enjoyed it. This course is on the more expensive end of cookery... More

I opted for the combined market tour and cooking class and was glad I did. I had already made a quick visit to the market for lunch from one of the food stalls a couple of days earlier, but we ate our way through several different items that I would not have ordered because they were unfamiliar, and I liked...

I reserved a cooking class with Agnes and Andrew as a Christmas present for my boyfriend and I could not have been more pleased with the care and service throughout. Agnes always replied to emails the same day and was kind enough to let me give the choices for the food for the class after Christmas Day so my boyfriend... More

We had a wonderful culinary Hungary Home Cooking experience in Budapest with Andrew. Agnes, the business owner, was traveling so our chef instructor was Andrew. He is a professional sous chef and has worked extensively in the US so he speaks perfect English, understands how Americans usually approach cooking and life in general, and is a patient guy with a...

Six of us traveling together had a great time with Agnes and Andre. We loved the central market and they walked us around there giving us plenty of time to do a little shopping and tasting along the way. They were also helpful with bargaining and telling us which stalls to buy things. The cooking class was superb as they... More

I received a referral to contact Agnes from a posting placed in International Travel News Magazine. It was the best referral I received! After emailing Agnes, I received a prompt response and we set the class in motion. Agnes met me and two friends at the designated meeting spot for a tour of the market and to purchase our supplies...

From Agnes' prompt reply to emails to book the market tour and cooking class to her warm welcome in her home, we had a wonderful experience. The time flew by as we learned about Hungarian cooking and traditions. The potato & sausage soup, chicken paprikash & apple cake were delicious. The market tour should not be missed. Many thanks to... More

Agnes was an absolute wonderful host. She has a great love of life and food! When she tells you to eat a very light breakfast, don't eat a breakfast! The tour through the market was educational and delicious. I would probably have never tried the dishes that she got 'samples' from the various food vendors. The samples would probably feed... More

If you're looking for an informal and intimate cooking class this is the place. The big plus is that you have control over the menu based on a wide selection of choices from their website. The class will be at your pace and you will definitely leave satisfied. We spent about an hour in the Grand Market buying the groceries... More

I booked this cooking class for my wife as a surprise during our Trip to Budapest, and yes, I was afraid at first as this is our first time doing a cooking class at a house of a family we never knew before...but as soon as you walk through Agnes's door, and meet her lovely kids....you instantly feel as if...
