If you enjoy meeting local people and learning about their culture and way of life you have to take this class. My friends and I had three days to spend in Budapest and we wanted to do something really unique to learn more about Hungarian culture. We found Agi here on Trip Advisor and were lucky enough that she was... 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.

This experience was the highlight of a wonderful few days in this gorgeous city. From the minute we arrived in Agi's home we felt welcome and knew this was going to be a brilliant experience. We were late (don't ask) but this didn't faze her at all, we were met with a glass of pulinka and canapes and after a... More

This was the first thing we signed up for when we started planning our Eastern European trip. My husband and I were so excited and looked forward to it for months. And it was so worth the wait. We booked on line and handled all of the details via e-mail. This worked perfectly. Agi was prompt and detailed with instructions... More

We met Agi at the Great Market at 9AM and the next 6 hours were a blend of Hungarian delights. We tasted delicious foods in the market, saw hand made crafts, learned about the foods that make Hungarian cuisine unique. We visited all three floors of the market and experienced a part of Budapest that many tourists never see. Then... More

The cooking class managed to suit two people with differing levels of experience and enthusium for cooking-both of us learned new techniques and hints... More

My Sister and I were looking for an experience that would help us experience the culture of our four grandparents who immigrated to America from Hungary in the early 1900's.
