Strike out into the surrounding neighborhood for stops at an artisan chocolate shop, a coffee house, a spice shop, or other options, depending on the day. Your small group size makes it possible to ask your guide questions and focus on learning everything you ever wanted to know about Hungarian cuisine. Sample traditional Hungarian dishes and authentic cakes during a shared meal, and finish with a Hungarian wine tasting. The guided tasting will teach you about the country's varietals, regions, and winemaking styles. Your tour concludes at the tasting venue.

Daniel was a great tour guide. His love for the food and history shines through. Tour started in the market and continued to a couple other stops. Just note that this will take up most of your day. Longer than you would expect but worth it.
