We had an incredible time with George at this cooking class; George has a way of melding the various elements that go into Hungarian cooking perfectly well and creating an experience which we will always remember & cherish. The true meaning of market to table cooking & an experience which anyone (believe me, anyone) can enjoy. I’d like to think that my contribution as the Chief Onion & Tomato slicer was an important one - highly recommend that you book this cooking class on your next Hungarian adventure

It was really cool experience. I really liked that there was both a vegetarian and meat dish. Which was perfect for my husband and I. George is such a sweetheart, he did an amazing job with the tour and cooking class. The meeting location was easy to find and the tour began on time; which was very convenient.

George and Marcel were amazing! It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed learning about Hungarian culture, history, and food! Paprika is such a magical flavor and experiencing the smoky, sweet, and spicy varieties was a very interesting and great learning experience. It was a lot of fun while making a lovely meal with truly amazing people! Thank you thank you!! I highly recommend it for solo travelers and foodies as an intro into Hungarian cuisine and the central market!
