This is a must do! It was so much fun and so informative. The market trip was full of information on not only the food, but Budapest history. The cooking class was excellent. And then we got to eat!!!
Katka was perfect- she is in the perfect role of chef, teacher and tour guide. Many thanks for a wonderful afternoon.

This was a wonderful immersion experience! The market was so fun and interesting. Our guide and teacher, Kata, could not have been nicer. She was so patient with us, as we are novice chefs!

We were really looking forward to this Hungarian cooking class which had great reviews on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed for several reasons.

1) It was advertised as a maximum of 12 people but there were 16 in our class, which was very crowded in the rather small kitchen.

2) The facilities were quite small and so with 16 people we just sat around a table and it wasn’t super interactive. There were points where individuals were able to have a go at doing some part of the cooking process but it wasn’t that interactive as the rest of the people were sitting around a table, not up and watching or engaging with what was happening.

2) There was not enough food for everyone - for example, there was not enough nokedli (noodles) for everyone.

3) The market tour was interesting but could be improved in several ways. It would have been good to get some more commentary as we walked through the market. We tried some traditional savoury pastry and then 6 different types of salami. It would have been better to try a great variety of things and have less salami.

Thank you for the tour, although it didn’t quite fulfil our expectations, we hope these suggestions will help to improve the class in the future.

Kata is fantastic, we had a wonderful day. We were a complicated group, looking for a vegetarian experience in a country that uses animal fat in everything!
First Kata took us to the largest Budapest market, where we bought all the ingredients. However, it was much more than that. She is also a tour guide and gave us a wonderful historic and cultural tour.
The main event was the cooking experience. The facility is excellent and we enjoyed a five course feast that we really did create ourselves. Highly highly recommended.

A wonderful and personalized experience. My wife and my two girls (7 and 9) loved our time with Easy Cooking. The tour of the historic market hall to get ingredients and learn more about Hungarian food and was fun and enlightening! I now want all pork products I can find from mangalica pigs. And the hands on and patient cooking class was a true treat. The food turned out great and was delicious (thanks to careful instruction :). They included my girls in the cooking as much as my wife and me, which turned the whole experience into something even more special. And I definitely appreciated how they altered the menu to let me learn more about cooking kapuzsta, something I remember smelling throughout the house every time I visited my grandmother. Highly recommend and I look forward to another session when we visit Budapest again

Wonderful tour of the Great Market Hall in Budapest. We just had three groups take this tour in March and each of the tours was just fantastic. Kata was very knowledgeable about Hungarian cuisine and history. The stops for tastings were very well chosen -- such a wide variety of foods and such large tasting samples!

Strongly recommend this tour!!!

Kata was an absolute gem! We walked around the central market for about an hour learning about its history and tasting the yummiest Hungarian delicacies. We were lucky enough to be with a fun group, as well.

We then taxi’d to the Easy Cooking kitchen and took shots of Hungarian pálinka before preparing a traditional appetiser, vegetable soup, chicken paprikash, and poppyseed bread pudding. Everything was insanely delicious. Kata let us take home the leftovers, as well, which we devoured later that night. Everything was spot on. Would recommend to anyone travelling alone, as a couple, with friends or family :)

Thank you for a beautiful, unforgettable experience!
