Arranging the class was painless and Agi was always happy to answer any questions. The directions to the class location were accurate and easy to follow.

After reading about Culinary Hungary on Trip Advisor, I emailed an inquiry. I heard back quickly from Agi and began to make arrangements for our group of six. (I had also sent an inquiry for several tours and another cooking class, but didn't hear back from them for 4-6 days.) From the market tour to cooking with Agi and Andrew... More

Our cooking class with Agi was a totally enjoyable experience. We met her at her flat and we then walked to the local market to buy what we needed to cook. For additional cost she will take you on a tour of the Central Market, but we felt this local market was actually more realistic since it's where she shops... More

My husband found Anges and Andrew via Tripadvisor and our family of 4 (including two teenagers aged 13 and 15) had a fantastic day. They were on time, took us on a personalized tour of the very clean Budapest market, bought our supplies (as well as some tourist trinkets - they were VERY patient) and headed off to Agnes' apartment...

After the tour and buying a few items needed for our meal, we went to Agnes' apartment and started cooking. We make Fruit soup, catfish paprikas, and sponge cake. We enjoyed cooking and... More

Agi helped my girlfriend and me cook the stuffed cabbage, sausage and potato soup, and sponge cake. They were delicious! She guided us through each step of the process and explained it according to our skill level. Wine and traditional bread with pork lard was served upon arrival.
