Hungarian private dining

Hungarian Private Dining

Do you like eating? Are you interested in Hungarian cuisine? Would you like to meet locals?
If your answer is yes, we would like to welcome you to my apartment for an authentic, traditional Hungarian private dining experience. It is similar to a family dinner. Common meals with quality wines, chatting in a friendly atmosphere. It is the greatest choice for you if you do not want to cook but you prefer eating and learning about Hungary, Hungarian life, customs, food and culture.

This is a two-hour-long culinary experience with a typical Hungarian 3-course menu. The private dinner is at a private historic upper-middle class venue in the centre where you can meet guests from other countries at my dining table so you can make new friends as well.
Come and eat with a local chef!

Hungarian 3-course Menu

Every dinner is very important for me.  When I composed the menu, I kept 3 things in my mind:

  • the  dishes have to be harmonized with each other and form a unified whole
  • considering my guests’ eventual requirements about a preferred food, special occasion or any food intolerances
  • I would like to give you a slice of Hungary through my food

When I prepare a dinner, I use family recipes from my mother and my husband’s grandma. I combine these traditional recipes with the new kitchen methods. I certainly prefer fresh, local and homemade ingredients. I do not have portions like restaurants do. You can always ask for more (I am happy to refill your glass and put some more on your plate). No problem if you are vegetarian or you have any food allergies. Please, let me know this when you register for dinner and we will change the menu according to your needs.

The Menu

Fresh cold Sour Cherry Soup with whipped cream

Cold Sour Cherry Soup

I think it is the most special soup in Hungary because it is cold, sweet & sour and pink and the taste: a pinch of cinnamon, vanilla and cloves.

Chicken Paprikash

This is one of the most famous Hungarian dish and it is not by chance because it is richer and tastier than the simple stew. We eat it with small homemade pasta and pickled cucumber.
