Foods · Hungary · May 6th - 16th, 2019 · 6 spots left

We’ll eat and drink our fill of amazing local food and wines! And immerse ourselves in the culture and cuisine of Hungary as we explore the city of Budapest, nearby villages, and the countryside, and pay behind-the-scenes visits to some of the best artisanal producers.

Early on in the tour we will stroll the incredible central food market of Budapest, for a crash course in all the local ingredients.

We will visit cheesemakers in the hills outside Tokaj, including one who also makes jams and traditional fruit syrups. We’ll learn about the heirloom breeds of animals still raised in the Hungarian countryside, and about the traditional cured meats. We will visit a family-run paprika producer. We will watch Hungarian pastry- and bread-makers create their celebrated treats, and get to sample them too of course! And visit several small wine makers – from dry whites to the famous sweet Tokaj aszú wines.

We will enjoy a cooking class at one of the wineries, to learn how to make several traditional dishes. And for those who wish to, we will try our hands at bacon-roasting, a favorite warm-weather activity in Hungary!
