Full description
Discover how to prepare Kürtőskalács, a traditional Hungarian chimney cake, at a workshop in Budapest. Prepare one of Hungary's favorite foods which are made from sweet dough, formed into strips, and then are wrapped around a cone and rolled in sugar. After a short introduction, be guided through the entire process of preparing an authentic chimney cake. Start by making the sweet dough from scratch. Receive tips and tricks which help with the baking process. See how the sugar stuck on the cake caramelises and forms a shiny, crispy golden crust. Once the baking process is finished, cover the cake with different flavors, such as ground walnut, powdered cinnamon, chocolate sauce, or similar.  At the end of the workshop try your delicious creation, and receive a certificate of completion with your name as a memento of your experience.

This was a very enjoyable workshop. The location of the bakery was very central, and the basement kitchen/classroom was a lovely surprise. Lily, our "teacher," explained the process very clearly, and she was a pleasure. Each participant made three kortoshes which were color-coded so that you only touched the ones you are making, and no one else could touch yours (very important in today's world of viruses). We ended the workshop with three kortoshes which were delicious, the recipe and instructions, and a certificate of completion. The workshop took about an hour. I really recommend it!

Such a beautiful experience! Our class teacher Lili & her staff were all very welcoming and kind! Lili explained us how to make Hungarian’s traditional Chimney Cake in such an easy way! We all had the privilige to make 3 Chimney cakes by also choosing 3 different flavours to glaze them (vanilla, cinnamon and nuts). And the end of the session, we received each of us a certificate, their secret recipe and we took with us our delicious creation! Will reccomend this experience to anyone! Thank you so much Lili & staff!

Such a different and fun activity to do that doesn’t take up too much of your day for sightseeing, the lady who did the class was lovely and very friendly and was a nice space with a small group of us doing the class. We could do it in our own time with no rushing. Would definitely recommend this activity it’s worth it alone for 3 fresh chimney cakes that you make yourself!
