Thanks Agi for a most enjoyable time and delicious meal and a welcome home to be in.

My Sister and I were looking for an experience that would help us experience the culture of our four grandparents who immigrated to America from Hungary in the early 1900's. We had an enchanting day with Agnes who met us in front of the Central Market at 9AM and explained all of the different foods available as we gathered the... More

We were a family of four, with a 24 year old son and 14 year old daughter. We got back from Budapest a few weeks ago but wanted to share how much we enjoyed this cooking class. Agi had all the ingredients ready for us when we arrived at her lovely home. We met her husband and toddler, who were... More

We did not take Agi's cooking class, but had the pleasure of enjoying one of her home cooked lunches in conjunction with a day trip tour we took with My Personal Budapest. The meal was excellent, and the discussion about Hungarian cooking methods, local wines, and shopping all made for a memorable afternoon. I would highly recommend any event with... More

What an amazing day we had with Agi! I can't say enough about what a great hostess, cook, guide and teacher she is. Our day began at the Central Market where we learned about different Hungarian foods (and sampled many), customs, holidays, lifestyle, etc. Then we shopped for the meals we would be making and then took a cab to...

You really do not have to be a foodie to do this tour. Warning!!! Do not eat a big breakfast as you will need all the room you can save in your stomach! Agi is an amazing guide and cook. You will see and feel how Hungarians live and eat. Agi takes you to the local market to shop and... More

My wife and I can't say how much we enjoyed the class. It takes place in her home and we had the opportunity to meet her family. We learned so much about the cooking skills but also about life in Hungary. Agi speaks excellent English and has a great ability to instruct. She shared her knowledge of food and about... More

Wow, we have just spent the day with Agi and eaten so much we could burst. But we have that lovely warm glow when the food you've had is just so tasty and enjoyable,,,, This was simply a great way to spend the day - learning about food culture is great insight into a country. We adored all the food... More

Fabulous, wonderful family, wonderful food, wonderful fun! The market tour with Agi is worth the price alone. She taught us so much. We learned and sampled the best of Hungary. Wow!

My son and I took Agi's cooking class yesterday, and had an absolutely wonderful time! We are both "foodies," so the idea of learning something about the local cuisine by making it appealed. I had done the same thing with my wife in Istanbul several years ago, and in Italy with my whole family a decade back. Every time, it's... More
