This experience was incredible. A four hour delightful afternoon that was the highlight of a ten day Danube Cruise. Our teacher-chef Zita was engaging, informative, and very accommodating. Wonderful conversation, cultural connections and great food. As awesome the beautiful sites in Budapest, for lasting memories, connect with Hungarians who live there. This experience will be unforgettable and more lasting than all the photographs you can take.

We had a bit of a rocky start because of email issues initially but Viator acknowledged their oversight which was no reflection on the tour operator at all and 'made things right' for us. Bravo Viator for stepping up!
As for the tour itself, we absolutely loved the Market walk and class. Cecilia was wonderful. The Market walk was really incredible because I was introduced to new products that I'd never seen or used before. Major bonus! And although we had visited that Market twice before on our own, her connections with the vendor/s showered us even more special treatment in terms of samples, history and origins of particular ingredients.
At the professional kitchen, we experienced an authentic execution and delivery of Hungarian recipes. The recipes were seamless in presentation and the time just flew by. We rolled out stuffed, contented and thrilled to have made a wonderful friendship with our hostess. This was an absolutely fabulous experience and one of the highlights of our stay.

Cecilia was our tour guide at the Great Market Hall and taught us about Hungarian culture and shared family recipes with us. She is so genuinely nice and friendly. What really got me was that she invited us to bring our little French bulldog to the cooking class! She picked us up and she didn't have to but offered and we accepted and even took us back to the apartment after the class! When she picked us up, she even brought a blanket for our dog to have in the car while we toured the market. We made so much food and she packed it all up for us and we ate leftovers Hungarian food is even better as leftovers! for Christmas Eve dinner at our apartment. We learned a lot and had a really great, unique and memorable Christmas Eve experience.

Easy Cooking Budapest class was so much fun. Cecila began by taking us to the food market and showing us local foods and explaining the history of the building.Her kitchen is wonderful and has everything to make the class enjoyable including excellent Hungarian wine. Everyone in class was given a chance to participate and the final products were delicious. Best of all we were provided with the recipes and a goodie bag to take home with us. I recommend this class to anyone wishing a break from the regular tourist activities. Best when shared with friends.

Cecilia was absolutely delightful and helped us learn about traditional Hungarian food, wine and culture. She met us at the Market - and provided us samples of sausages, cheese, and strudels - before taking us to the recently updated apartment where we began our cooking class. The food we made was all delicious - and easy to make - especially when accompanied by her uncle's palinka and several bottles of tasty Hungarian wines...

I would highly recommend this as part of your next trip to Budapest....
