BALAZS: I was born in Budapest, and am still living here - this is a great place! I graduated from literature and film art at the ELTE University Budapest and am currently doing my PhD in Art History there. I'm working as an independent photographer, journalist and filmmaker. My hobby is definitely the ultrarunning: everything beyond marathon on terrain or on concrete. A runner likes the carbohydrate - but beside this I really prefer the Hungarian kitchen with a little bit outlook to our neighbor countries's recipes. Try our solid but obsessed cuisine! ESZTER: I was born, raised and graduated at Budapest. After finishing as a chartered landscape architect, I joined a Doctoral Programme in art theory. Beside these studies I operated in different places in various positions such as marketing assistant, production operation manager and PR expert. Now I'm working as an event manager, but I'm a qualified florist and flower decorator. My approach to the things of life is often aesthetic. My outfit is well-planned every day, I patched the tiles for our kitchen’s wall, I embroidered our cookbook with and Escher pattern, and I’m extraordinarily finical with her own handwriting. And this is the case with my cooking as well.

What to expect at Balazs+Eszter's place
We loved sharing dinner with Eszter and Balazs. The food and wine were excellent, but visiting with this delightful couple was the true highlight of the evening. We have already recommended them to others and will join them again if we have the opportunity to return to Budapest.
We had a lovely evening with Balasz and Easter .. and baby Phillip! The food was excellent ... tasty, subtly spiced, and lots of variety. We had several food restrictions and Balasz made sure that everybody had plenty of options. Both hosts were lovely and we learned a lot about life in Hungary today. We had 6 people which is probably the limit for their apartment. Highly recommended!
