Ready for a truly amazing hands-on Hungarian cooking class in Budapest?  Ready for a Market tour with local experts? Do you know the difference between the Goulash, Stew and Paprikash? Have you ever tasted Hungarian wine or palinka?
Ready for a happy time chatting, learning about Hungarian customs, local ingredients and everyday life? 

If you say yes, come with me! I am Marti and I really happy to meet you! 

The MARKET TOUR with COOKING is a complete gastronomical experience or you can call it a two-in-one program. In which I combined a visit to the local Market and the cooking course.
We start in the Market, I talk about the history of the building and the local products. We buy the ingredients for the 3-course menu and you can taste the most popular Hungarian street-food as well. After the Market tour the cooking course begins, which ends with a delicious, rich meal. It takes more than 5 hours but you will have a memorable event.
