Hungarian Christmas traditions, live from a bakery in Budapest

Duration
1.5 hours
Price
From $29.00
Group size
Up to 20 people

Join a local expert from Budapest to learn about Hungarian Christmas traditions in a virtual cooking class.

From a cozy Budapest café to your kitchen, experience the traditions of a Hungarian Christmas. Join Tour Director Bea, who owns and operates a coffee shop in her home city of Budapest, for a Hungarian cooking class. Come ready to (virtually!) meet fellow travel-lovers in this live cooking class, and bring your pre-measured ingredients to learn to make Szaloncukor. This traditional holiday sweet is a staple of Christmas in Hungary, and doubles as a delicious Christmas tree ornament (we promise that it’s easier to make than it is to pronounce!). Bea will also share her classic Glühwein recipe, and teach you the steps to making the perfect glass of this traditional Hungarian mulled wine—brewing this seasonal drink is one of our favorite Hungarian Christmas traditions! Sip a glass of this warm, sweet wine as you learn about Hungarian traditions and assemble your traditional sweets. At the end of your Hungarian cooking class, Bea will show you her technique of wrapping your creations in foil to hang from the Christmas tree as yummy edible ornaments. Try not to eat them all so you can show them off to your friends and family! This is one virtual cooking class that you don’t want to miss. Join in and bring Christmas in Hungary to your own home.
