Join me and fellow travellers to learn how to cook up tasty Hungarian dishes using the best seasonal produce. After visiting a local market, I will show you how to prepare traditional Hungarian food in a community space at the heart of Budapest’s Palace District. We’ll get our hands messy and cook a three course lunch together. I’ll share not only the recipes but also tales that lie behind the dishes, stories of the growers that produce our ingredients and I’ll introduce you to the unique community organisation at which we’ll be based. You will learn how to make a delicious seasonal soup with handmade Hungarian style dumplings, a hearty one pot dish that you’ll find more often on a Hungarian dinner table than goulash, traditional fermented vegetables and a tasty dessert using seasonal fruit. Once it’s ready, we’ll relax with a glass or two of local wine and enjoy the meal we’ve created together. If you’re looking for local tips on what foods to try and where’s best to eat, I’ll be more than happy to share these with you.
