Taste the holiday tradition of Beigli two ways! Make both Walnut and Poppyseed Beigli in a cooking class led by a chef live from Hungary

One of Hungary's most significant contributions to the culinary world is their amazing desserts. And this loved sweet treat is no exception. Found throughout Hungary, and especially at Christmas, Beigli will become a new tradition in your family home. During the holidays, bakeries throughout the country fill their windows with these sweet rolls, typically filled with walnut or poppyseeds.  But the real art to Beigli is achieving a perfect shiny, crackly and marbled mahogany colored crust. 


In your private baking class, you'll make two types of Beigli, one filled with walnuts the other with poppyseeds. While baking you'll whip up some quick cottage cheese donuts! Your kitchen will smell wonderful and perhaps you'll even see some good fortune after your class. After all, there's a beautiful old belief in Hungary that poppyseeds bring good luck. 


Chef Agnes will video call into your home from her kitchen in Budapest for a private cooking class. Together, you'll share stories while you bake this holiday favorite together. It's a day you'll never forget. <
