    I had a wonderful time learning about the market, Hungarian foods, and cooking techniques from this class. All my questions about different types of foods and how people eat were answered, we had such a lovely lunch, and I can't wait to go home and make Paprikash for my family. A highlight of my trip to Budapest!

    Excellent Adventure!

    It was amazing. We loved it. The guide/chef "Aggie" was very knowledgeable, friendly and fun. Clean and well stocked kitchen. Great organization and execution. Not rushed at all. Of course the lunch we made was delicious!
