At a Glance

Divided in two by the storied River Danube, Budapest is a leading cultural center of 2 million people and is universally regarded as one of the most beautiful cities on the planet. The city owes its magnetic appeal, however, to much more than just its attractive riverside panorama, the romance of the Buda Castle Quarter and the charisma of its many UNESCO World Heritage Sites. For lining the medieval streets of Budapest are markets, cafes and bistros that provide a venue for the expression of a quintessential element of Hungarian culture — the food. In this alluring world capital, follow tantalizing aromas through the city streets to restaurants and shops as local experts introduce you to the flavors of Hungarian cuisine and teach you how to prepare it at home. Leading the way is Zsolt Beregszászi, former Chef de Cuisine of the Gundel Restaurant, one of the most famed restaurants in Budapest and a featured stop on your culinary itinerary.
