Full description
Kitchen Pixie was created to provide guests with the opportunity to taste traditional Hungarian food and drinks and learn about Hungarians in a personal setting. This unique 4-hour culinary course is held in the flat of your hosts. Hungarians have a love for cooking and eating great food. When meals are being prepared the kitchen is full of life: someone is chopping onions, someone else is preparing the meat or kneading dough. The pots are bubbling and the room is filled with talking and laughter. During your cooking class, you’ll sip delicious wine and the smell of the food will fill the entire flat. This is the atmosphere in which you’ll enjoy learning about and preparing traditional Hungarian recipes. This is also a great opportunity to learn about everyday life, customs, and Hungarian hospitality. As your private cooking lesson ends you’ll sit down to a delicious 3-course lunch.

Hungarian cookery course experience

Myself and my sister were visiting Budapest for the weekend and on our last evening decided to book cookery course for the next morning. We were collected from our accommodation and taken to Marti apartment which was beautifully and professionally layed out for our experience we made a three course meal with lots of Marti assistants while eating hungrian snacks, wine and had a wonderful time. After we made everything we sat in the dinning room to indulge in the food we made and were throughly full. This was a lovely experience which was private with us two of us and Marti and would encourage you to do especially if time is limited and want to experience proper hungrian food. After our experience Marti look us to the local bus stop so we could get the bus to the airport.

Excellent, fun class! I highly recommend it.

This was a first rate cooking class. Set in a lovely kitchen perfect for a small group. Marti has a lot of experience, she not only teaches you about the food, but some Hungarian history too! She even gives gluten free options. The recipies were clear and understandable, I can't wait to make them for my friends. Hungarian food is so different from California cuisine- sure to be a hit.

A fantastic and usefulcooking class

We enjoyed a fantastic morning in the Hungarian Cooking Class coached by two friendly ladies. We learned a lot, not only to cook very nice dishes, but also about Hungarian habits and traditions. We will certainly use your tips and goals for cooking in the future. Thank you very much for your hospitality and for the very useful ideas! Katerina from Rotterdam, Holland
