Had a fantastic time with Brigit. She acted as sous chef and let all of us experience the cooking first hand. The menu was just as we expected. Had tons of food to eat! All delicious! Would recommend to all.

It was fabulous! Brigit was very great, the market is impressive, and the food was delish. I'd highly recommend it for foodies and people who enjoy cooking!!

We had a great experience in the market and in the class room. Working in teams of two we got to prepare three relatively simple dishes that made and excellent lunch. The whole experience was a highlight of our trip to Budapest.

My husband said - this was not something he would have booked - but was very glad I did - because he really enjoyed it! The facilities were great, our guide and chef, Teri, was very friendly, the food turned out amazing and we were able to enjoy a glass of wine while cooking our meal. It was such a relaxing and enjoyable experience - we would recommend this.

This was a really awesome course! It ended up being a private course - myself and two family members. We met outside the market and our guide took us in for a tour and to buy the food we would be using. After the tour we grabbed a taxi to the cooking school. Everything was already laid out for us, and when we arrived we were offered fresh brewed coffees, espressos, etc. We got to cooking pretty quickly they also have free sodas, beers, wine, etc. It was fun because every so often the tour guide would stop us to take a shot together. The food came out FANTASTIC!! They offer to email you the recipes after the course, but we also bought the cookbook, because yum! You can also buy other things there like knives, cooking utensils, pans, ingredients you used, and so on. Overall, highly recommend and we would absolutely do this again when we return. Thank you so much!!

We enjoyed the cooking class, making goulash and apple strudel. We took a walk and tour through the central market prior to reaching the cooking class whcih was great to see all the fresh foods, meat, fish, produce and baked goods. We have always taken one cooking class during our vacation for the past years and have always enjoyed learning how to prepare other foods. We recommend this tour for anyone wanting to try something new.

This was OUTSTANDING! Great shopping tour of the market, a cozy professional kitchen to make Chicken Paprikash and Goulyash soup. Highlight of the trip...would do it again and again. HIGHLY recommend.

What a wonderful class! Our host was a lot of fun, and took us through the main market while she purchased some items. The class then moved to the cooking school, where we each had our own kitchen. We cooked a number of traditional savory and sweet dishes, and enjoyed a meal at the end. We also tasted a number of Hungarian wines and liquors.

Great class! We got to tour the market and discover local specialties and then learn to cook like a Hungarian. There were 10 people in the class so we were able to get individual attention and hands on experience. It was truly a great experience!
