I am a professional cook and a really culinary fanatic. I love cooking, baking and catering. A long time ago I learnt to cook from my mother, then I have attended several cooking courses but I only cooked and baked for my friends at home. Then I started the professional cook school and passed the exam. I learnt and worked a lot, it was hard work, but I enjoyed every moment of it. (Okay, there were some days in summer when the temperature was more than 40 degrees Celsius in the restaurant’s kitchen and I felt it was crazy). During my practice time I worked in SOFITEL Budapest Chain Bridge Hotel and ARANY KAVIAR Russian fine-dining restaurant. I met a lot of fantastic chefs and teachers who helped my development. I use this knowledge in my own kitchen.
I organize different culinary programs in Budapest (private dining, cooking course, market tour with cooking, wine tasting). I prepare Hungarian and Jewish dishes.
I would like to welcome you to my flat for a real Hungarian private program. Come and join my unique experience for a few hours in Budapest.
Our goal is a memorable moment and experience for my guests.
Marti is a wonderful and genuine host. She is also a fabulous chef! We learned all about her culture, the dishes and family while dining on authentic local Hungarian delicacies and also from sustainable sources. Our first starter was to be introduced to the other guests and we all hit it off. She made it so comfortable and I know we all felt like friends.
She started with her HOMEMADE Hungarian Palinka brandy toast. It is a traditional drink of Hungary and it was GREAT (strong but great). Even her non alcoholic drinks like her teas were homemade! Then our appetizer consisted of several foods like meats, cheeses, spreads and veggies as a taster. She baked fresh homemade Challah which was outstanding. Her Cherry soup was so delicious and I never knew you could make a soup out of cherries!!! The main course was something I have read so much about but never tasted. It was the traditional Chicken Paprikish with her spaeztle ( noodles). It was so delicious I cold not get enough of her sauce and had two portions. She offered second plates and it felt like home and served family style. The wine was delicious which she paired with the meals. Then dessert was simply divine!!! She served a traditional walnut filled pancake with chocolate sauce and whipped cream that was out of this world. I wanted to lick my dish!
Marti went fully out of her way to offer us her home and be a family for the night. I have been to other eat & meet locals who do this out of their home, and no one serves seconds! They put you on a schedule! But with Marti it was family style food and just perfect. We stayed longer than we all expected chatting the night away. We all hugged at the end of the evening. If you ever are in Budapest-PLEASE book EatWith.com dinner with Marti. Just a lovely woman and truly an experience I will cherish forever. Thank you Marti!!!

From start to finish, all I can say is perfection! Marti was so welcoming that we felt that we are visiting a relative in Budapest. The personal touches and attention to details and of course her cooking talent contributed to the success of our first dinner in Budapest with my family of 5 plus 3- (we brought their girlfriends and boyfriend too).
The fact that my young adults -ages 18-24 were asking questions and listening to the background and culture of Hungary was such a pleasure to witness. It surely was a win-win situation since we got a scrumptious local Hungarian meal as well as experienced a personal and engaging conversation with Marti. I know that this unique dining experience will be one of the top highlights of our Eastern Europe trip this year.

We had a delightful time and a delicious dinner at the start of our holiday in Budapest. The food was beautifully presented, perfectly prepared, and paired with interesting conversation with Marti and the others who were at the dinner. We highly recommend Marti's dinners!
