Hungarian Home Cooking Class and Market Tour in Budapest
From USD 141.11
Uncover the staples and secrets of Hungarian cuisine in a way you couldn’t do alone with this market tour and private Hungarian home cooking class in Budapest. Dive deeper into Budapest’s Central Market Hall than you could independently to find the right ingredients, and visit your host’s home to prep a 3-course meal under guidance. Finally, savor your creations as you hear about Hungarian food and customs—insight you’d otherwise miss.
What to Expect
Imagine strolling through a Hungarian market, picking up the perfect ingredients for a delicious Hungarian meal with the help of an expert on Hungarian food, and then cooking all of that seasonal fresh produce in a private home kitchen.
If you are looking for just that – a Hungarian market tour and cooking class in English in Budapest – then this is the class for you!
We will meet you at the main entrance to the Central Market Hall, which is the biggest and the most famous indoor market in Europa and attracts shoppers for its spaciousness and architectural decor.

11:30-13:30 Cooking time. We prepare the dishes you have chosen previously. Soup, main course, dessert.
13:30–15:00 After cooking we eat the meals together and informally explore Hungarian culture, folklore, customs and traditions.
