I really enjoyed the culinary experience with Brigitta. She met me at the market, and spend some time explaining to me all the ingredients available and how they are used in Hungarian Cuisine. We bought some spices, fresh meat and cured meat for souvenirs. The cooking class was very personalized, and as I had some dietary restrictions, hey accommodated my... More

We are instructors on a study abroad in Budapest and booked an afternoon Hungarian cooking class at ChefParade for us and 26 students. Although we have participated in a lot of activities during our time in Budapest, this experience was the most fun--and delicious--group activity from our whole month abroad! The chef instructors were professional and helpful, and the ChefParade... More

I bought the entire package from the cooking school - breakfast, the walk through the Market and the class itself. The breakfast was great as the chef told me about some specialties which I never would have otherwise tried. Then as we walked through the Market, she pointed out different delicacies and spirits. We even met the market's "mushroom inspector."... More

Had such a fun time with Chef Parade, above my expectations! Lovely clean kitchen, all the ingredients and utensils were set up before we arrived. Very much a "hands on" cooking class. Sylvia our instructor was lovely and very helpful. Food was delicious and we got to take the leftovers home. Provided with Hungarian wine and a background to Hungarian... More

My fiance and I stumbled upon this course due to its affiliation with the Budapest Cards that we had purchased for the duration of our stay. We opted in for the breakfast and market tour as well, which was definitely worth the early wake-up! Anna toured us around the market and gave interesting historical facts about Budapest/Hungary along the way.... More

What an amazing experience - my mother and I came here to celebrate her birthday and our last day in Budapest and it was incredible! The school was very accomodating and we ended up with a private class with Brigi - learned how to make ghoulash soup, chicken paprikash, apple strudel and mulled wine! Emailed the reciples afterwards so we... More

This was my highlight from Budapest. I booked this 12 months ago for 12 people and it was amazing. We cooked 6 gorgeous dishes between 12 people. It was very organised and well prepared. We had such a good time and a good giggle. Our teachers were so helping and very patient and spoke very good English. I would highly... More

My husband and I did the basic three hour course and were the only ones there. Sylvie was very friendly and it showed the authenticity of the school when she made comments like, "This is how my grandmother made this dish." She also offered a taste of palinca and, after we mentioned wanting to try the famous Tocaji wines while... More

I've had lots of international cooking school experience and this one stands out as one of the most enjoyable. Numbers are kept low to maximize time with the Chef. What's described below highlights the Premium Experience (*). While I was completely satisfied with the extras it provided, others who opted to just participate in the regular program seemed equally pleased.... More
