Unique culinary experience in Jewish district. Do you know Rugelach? Have you prepared Challah? If you are interested in traditional Central-European Jewish cuisine, come and cook together. Learn about the origin of Jewish dishes and drinks as well as their preparation and have a look at how we live in Budapest. I would like to share a lot of interesting family stories with you. My story: 'My relationship with Jewish people and culture started more than 15 years ago when I got to know my husband. I met him and became part of a modern Jewish family. The main figure of the family is the grandmother whose love for life, attitude and modern way of thinking is an example for me to follow. It was her who taught me the following dishes and I am really grateful to her for introducing me the secrets of Jewish cuisine.'
