Itinerary

  • This food and wine tour begins from inside of the main entrance to the Central Market Hall. You will be met by an English-speaking guide who will accompany you on this tour.

    We will begin by getting acquainted with Hungarian cuisine through the great variety of ingredients (which are mostly local and seasonal) on display. We will discuss the history of the building, the culture of eating and drinking in Hungary, and the everyday cooking and eating habits. After tasting a few carefully selected goodies at the market, we will head out to the surrounding neighbourhood and visit a few more places.

    Learn why Hungarian paprika is so special and how Hungarian cooks use it, and how it is produced. Also taste the paprika made by Hungary's leading artisanal paprika manufacturer as well.

    Lunch is served at a traditional restuarant, where we will sample a traditional Hungarian spirit as well.
