What to expect
Just because the Central Market is closed on Sundays, does not mean you should not eat, drink, and explore!
The route of the culinary walk through Budapest is different on Sundays, but the goal is the same: to get a thorough introduction to the food and wine of Hungary, while tasting a variety of foods and drinks in the company of a food-specialized guide.
The first stop is a farmer’s market with a unique location inside of a ruin bar. As you wander around the market, you will discuss with your guide the culture of Hungarian food, the various ingredients, and the dishes and recipes commonly made from them. Here you will taste a selection of foods (and have a few drinks to fortify you).
Next you will have a traditional lunch, composed of a variety of dishes, annotated by your guide. The next stop is a classic coffeehouse and pastry shop where, over coffee and cake, your guide will explain the fascinating history of Budapest’s coffeehouses (which were once centers of literary life, until they were shut down during communism). Ducking into a few small shops along the way, the tour will conclude with a wine tasting: three quintessential fine local wines (a dry white, a dry red, and a sweet aszú from Tokaj), each paired with a different type of local artisan cheese. A sommelier will introduce the wines and the cheeses, and wet your thirst for Hungarian wine with an overview on the country’s most important regions, varieties, and styles.
Be sure to come with an appetite!
