Learn to Cook Hungarian

A fun way to truly experience Hungary is by taking a cooking class. Hungarian cuisine is rich and famous and you can learn about the main ingredients and master the basics of Hungarian cooking to impress your family and friends back home.

Chefparade Cooking School offers hands-on courses in a modern, cosmopolitan cooking studio set up for up to twelve people. Courses start with a visit to Budapest’s Central Market Hall (optional), guided by the chef. After purchasing the ingredients and learning about the main components, the cooking adventure begins. Classes, start in the morning and run for about four hours. Each class consist of cooking (and eating) a simple three-course meal. It’s a fun way to meet new people and learn about Hungarian culture and traditions. No cooking skills are required. We know it's an awesome class because we tried it ourselves. Chefparade is also a top ranked Budapest activity on Tripadvisor. Oh, and by the way, classes are in English.

    We were there last summer with friends and Chefparade turned out to be a great experience and a nice start for our visit to Hungary. We signed up for the whole package, including a visit to the Great Market, which is a fascinating place. I definitely recommend this pre-cooking tour as it’s very informative with some insights into Hungarian cuisine and culture. The cooking was held in a fully-equipped professional kitchen. Our cooking selection included ‘Paprikáscsirke nokedlivel’ (Chicken Paprika with dumplings), a very traditional Hungarian dish. All in all, we had a lovely time, it was engaging and fun and our creations were delicious! Highly recommended.
