Andrew truly made our cooking class the highlight of our trip. Who knew that a guy born and raised in Hungary could know SO MUCH about Texas. Being from Texas, we are very proud if where we come from but Andrew blew us away with his knowledge and love for Texas. The class started off with some bread and meat... More

My wife and I took her cooking class with Agnes. We made goulash soup, chicken paprikash and apple cake and all were delicious. Agnes made the experience fun and informative. These are recipes we will be using at home. She also tipped us off on where to buy some of the best home grown and home ground paprika in Budapest.... More

My husband and I enjoyed Agnes teaching us Hungarian vegetarian cooking- that in itself is a challenge in meat loving Hungary. Our jointly cooked lunch was indeed delicious- ragout soup, paprika potatoes on little dumplings, and homemade apricot jam filled pancakes for dessert. What was special was our sharing of cooking, vegetable markets, wine preferences, working Mom's schedules, Grandparent roles... More

My husband and I loved this class! We made Goulash Soup, Chicken Paprika, and Hungarian Apple Cake. Andrew was patient, funny, and informative. He taught us some new knife skills in addition to how to cook three delicious recipes. It was a private lesson in Andrew's clean and comfortable home. We did not the do the market tour. This was...

Andrew was delightful - friendly, knowledgeable, engaging. The meal we cooked together was terrific. Well worth both the time and the money! Don't pass up the opportunity Agnes and Andrew offer to experience, up close, the tastes of another culture.

While in Budapest, our four-hour cooking class was definitely one of the highlights. We weren't able to do the Market tour due to time constraints, but thoroughly enjoyed our chance to cook with Andrew. There are only so many museums and cathedrals we can absorb -- and it was a pleasure to be able to choose the menu, learn about... More

Our group were four, two who live in Hungary and two from the UK. The day delivered exactly what had been offered. The tour of the market and tastings of various Hungarian specialities led by our excellent guide Andrew was great and added to the knowledge of those that had visited the market before. The preparation and cooking of the... More

We had such a great time with Andrew, our chef and tour guide. We got to try local favorite at the market as well as buy some souvenirs. We had a tight schedule but he was very accommodating. I can wait to make goulash at home.

I was traveling with a friend and we wanted to experience something more in Budapest than the museums and spas. This proved to be the answer. Andrew met us at the market, which in itself is a 'must see'. Do not eat before your tour, he provides big of samples typical Hungarian breakfast foods. We toured the downstairs food area... More

My sister and I had a wonderful time learning to cook the "real" Hungarian way. We throughly enjoyed our Chef Andrew and his many skills and the way he explained the ingredients. We not only smelled them, we heard them. He has a way of explaining each piece of food and its color, crispness, smell and feel and why some... More
