Budapest's first food tour (est. 2008!) introduces Hungarian food and wine culture through classic flavors, unique wines, history, and stunning architecture. You'll get a taste of the traditional side of Hungarian cuisine, and the modern artisan producers and specialty shops spicing up Budapest’s food scene. Beginning at the Central Market—Budapest’s cathedral of food—we’ll introduce you to Hungarian cuisine through the abundance of ingredients. We'll discuss the building, Hungary's eating and drinking culture, special dishes … and just what Hungarian cooks do with all the pork fat, paprika, and goose liver. Here we’ll taste a selection of foods (and have an aperitif to fortify us). After a lunch feast at a traditional butcher, we’ll sample the elegant cakes that Hungarian bakers are known for at a classic coffeehouse. We'll visit an award-winning chocolatier, and finish with a sommelier led tasting of 3 great local wines (including Tokaji aszú) paired with artisan cheese. Come hungry!
