You'll be greeted with local snacks and refreshing soft drinks. We will prepare two typical Hungarian pastries, a sweet and a savory one: The sweet one is the well-known 'Strudel' or "rétes' filled with delicious, locally sourced produce that's baked in a paper-thin pastry. You will learn the original, hand-made way of stretching the pastry until it's so thin that we can almost see through it. The savory one is a classic Hungarian pastry called 'pogácsa' made with baked potatoes, yeast and sour creme in the dough, topped with lots of delicious local cheese for the perfect result. At social gatherings 'pogácsa' is the must have snack for Hungarians and learning how to make it is a great souvenir to take home with you from Hungary. The ingredients we'll be working with are 100% locally sourced Hungarian ones.

Hi, we are Eva and Andrea, two young chefs from Budapest. Andrea - I discovered my passion for growing plants and preparing food at a very young age. Now as a professional chef my life is dedicated to share my interest and love about organic, locally grown and plant-based eating. Eva - I believe food is one of the most influential elements of our life. Since my early childhood I loved discovering farmers' produce & experimenting with new tastes. I am a vegetarian and a strong supporter of buying local and organic products, not only because it tastes the best, but it also spares our planet.
Our cooking class takes place in a private villa with a beautiful large garden, perfect for outdoor dinners on warmer nights. The villa is located on the Buda side in a residential, yet easily accessible area.
