How does it work?
We start by meeting with you in your home. We will custom write your menu to your tastes for whatever event you require. We will do food shopping for the event covered by the advance paid by you. On the big day we will arrive a few hours earlier to do all the preparation and cook the previously agreed menu freshly. All you need is a healthy appetite and the desire to have a great evening with your guests enjoying the Latin flavor and Latin tunes. And when we leave there’s no mess to clean up in the kitchen.
How much does it cost?
How long is a piece of string? The price depends on many variables, such as how many guests you had, how many courses were served, the menu choices, the location is inside or outside Budapest, etc. You give us a call and we will heat up the atmosphere in your kitchen.

Szilvi is a born Budapester. Her maximalist and perfectionist sides became manifest in her childhood, though at that time she did not express them in cooking and organizing, rather managed her kindergarten and school mates. It was clear to everybody that this little girl had a special talent in organizing. She likes the process of making ideas real. It might be a trip, a family lunch or just a coffee with friends in the afternoon, everything must play out exactly as she envisioned and organized it.
She started her career as a receptionist in a hotel, and then continued as a personal assistant at a multi company. This beginning laid the path to the fortress of perfectionism and maximalism, an international law firm, which made her even more flawless in her talent. She spends her free time by managing private projects through the internet. One of her projects is Los Carballos, which has been a huge learning experience and a beginning of a new lifestyle, where she can grab the kitchen spoon while still holding a pen in her other hand. At Los Carballos she is the one who guides Latin temperament within the boundaries of European standards. And guess what? Even this Latin temperament is not able to upset her nerves trained in the urban jungle.
