I am literally a Monarchy person: born and raised in Budapest (Hungary) and have lived in Vienna for 15 years. My parents and great-grandparents are from Austria, Germany and Transylvania - so I definitely have a strong Monarchy heritage.

I was raised with a passion for cooking and I strongly believe that the most important ingredient of any recipe is LOVE.

I carefully select the ingredients. Whenever it is possible I choose organic stuff and shop directly from farmers or at the local butcher.
I prefer cooking fresh and I hardly use anything that comes from the freezer. I never use microwave oven and I really like slow cooking!
Once in a year I do a vegan fasting 1,5 months but on the other days I cook and eat basically all types of food.

Beatrix ist eine sehr herzliche und superfreundliche Gastgeberin, ich habe mich sehr willkommen gefühlt, fast wie bei einer guten Freundin. Die Zubereitung der Marillenknödel konnte selbstständig und aktiv durchgeführt werden, alles war sehr gut vorbereitet. Es handelt sich um ein altes Familienrezept, die Knödel waren sehr lecker! Klare Empfehlung, wenn ihr in Wien seid und gerne Marillenknödel esst --》 Anmelden!

This was a fun, fabulous cooking experience with Beatrix. She is friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Beatrix is passionate about what she does. She makes each step perfectly understandable; you can tell immediately that she has experience as a teacher. The dumplings we made were yummy and I left feeling like I could confidently recreate them at home. We had the opportunity to shared stories throughout the experience and Beatrix also provided me some recommendations for Budapest. Overall, I found the cooking experience to be well worth it and would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone who comes to Vienna! Thank you for a wonderful evening, Beatrix!

Beatrix is a lovely person and very welcoming. She is genuinely passionate about food and it comes across how much she enjoys sharing that with people. It was great to learn about Viennese food and culture while doing some therapeutic baking. Beatrix was very kind and accommodating in altering her regular recipe to that of a vegan one for me. Would really recommend this experience, it was fun, relaxing and informative!
