Learn to Cook Hungarian Style!

Spend the evening cooking with a local chef in our open kitchen. This event is jointly hosted by our chef (a professional who has worked in many Budapest kitchens) and our sommelier. The casual cooking class—which is punctuated by plenty of wine tasting—culminates with a dinner party as we sit to enjoy the fruits of our labor together, along with a few perfectly paired wines.

Starting with a glass of wine and some nibbles of local artisan cheese and charcuterie, our chef will start by going over the game plan. Over the course of the evening you’ll learn about Hungarian culinary traditions, how the locals work with important local ingredients, and signature (and seasonal) Hungarian flavor combinations. You’ll prepare a meal composed of traditional Hungarian recipes and the chef will discuss the most important Hungarian dishes and techniques, giving you the confidence to go home and prepare your own Hungarian feast. While the menu may vary, it will feature a variety of dishes from beloved home-style classics to more elegant restaurant-style dishes.

We believe that wine and food are best enjoyed together, so our sommelier will pour samples of different wines throughout the evening so you can taste (and learn about) a range of Hungarian wine. It is a dinner party, after all! You’ll be working as a group to prepare the meal (there are no individual cooking stations), so you can contribute as much (or as little) to the meal preparations as you’d like. Dinner should be on the table at around 9pm.
