Mézeskalács (honey gingerbread) baking and decorating - October 20-21. 2021. 7pm Central


Mézeskalács (honey gingerbread) is an old tradition in Hungary that goes back to centuries. While they are made for any occasion all year long, Christmas is the prime season for it. Families make simple cookies to eat and more intricate versions for decoration. 


This is a two day class, as honey gingerbread has to age before baking. The first day we will make the dough and royal icing, practice piping, plan our cookies. The next day we will bake and decorate the cookies.


Class fee is $40

Linzer - November 13. 2021. 10 am Central


Linzer is a popular cookie type in Hungary. I love them, because they allow me to create a wide variety of cookies with just one batch of dough. It's a fun, creative way to make a beautiful cookie plate with minimal effort.

Szaloncukor (traditional Christmas Candy) and Habcsok (meringue circles) - November 17-18. 2021. 7pm Central


We can't imagine a Hungarian Christmas tree without these treats. To be honest, in Hungary most families buy these in stores, as they are commercially available in many different flavors. In the main time, making it at home can be a very sweet family tradition and the home made also tastes better.


In this class, we will create two different fillings for the candies, coat them with chocolate and wrap them. (Supply kit for wrappers will be available in my Etsy store). We will also make the meringue circles.

Beigli (traditional walnut and poppy seed roll) - November 17-18. 2021. 7pm Central


Beigli (walnut or poppy seed roll) is the most traditional Christmas treat in Hungary. Families usually create many different types of desserts, but this one is rarely missing from the Hungarian Christmas table. Of course many bakeries sell them around the Holidays.


This is a two day class. The first day we will make the fillings, make the dough and the rolls. They have to rest before baking. The next day we will bake them.


We will make 3 different fillings: walnut, poppy seed and marzipan and two rolls of each. You can serve one set for Thanksgiving and freeze the other set for Christmas.

Coconut cubes and Coconut rolls - October 2. 2021. 10 am Central


These two recipes are dear to my heart, as my grandmother made them for every Christmas. If you like chocolate and coconut together, you will definitely make these more than once a year.


The coconut cubes are small cakes with chocolate-coconut coating. I usually make them about a week ahead of the holidays.


The coconut roll is an easy, no-bake recipe. I usually make a big batch of it (4-6 rolls). Wrap the rolls individually and freeze them. This is a perfect little dessert to have ready when you have unexpected guests.

Rétes (strudel) and sós aprósütemény (savory tea biscuit) - September 11. 2021.


Sütemény basically means baked treat, süti is the short version of the word. And Hungary has so many variations, that most of them don't even have a name. They are described by the ingredients or baking methods. Sütemény can be sweet (édes sütemény) or savory (sós sütemény) and for a party, people usually bake both types. We will do the same during this class.


Rétes is a popular sütemény  in Hungary with a long tradition. It's basically a filling wrapped in very thin dough. It comes in different sweet and savory flavors. Women used to get together to pull the  dough around a big table until it gets super thin. We will skip this laborious part and use Filo Dough. We will make two fillings, sour cherry-poppy seed and apple-walnut.


Sós aprósütemény (savory tea biscuit) is a basic savory dough, cut into tiny squares and the flavors added on top. They have a pretty long shelf life, so nice to keep them around and with all the possible toppings, they are pretty attractive.

Kifli, zsemle (bread rolls) and kalács (sweet, braided bread) - August 7. 2021.


In Hungary, people eat a lot of bread. Which leads to wide a variety of bread. Kifli and zsemle are basically single serving breads. Zou can find them in every grocery store. Most places will have a wide variation of them too. Kifli has crescent shape and zsemle is round.


Kalács is a sweet, braided bread. Most families will bake it for Easter, but they consume it all year round, as it's readily available in most bakeries and grocery stores.
