Wish-Kitchen for the realisation of dreams of very ill children


The Wish-kitchen is a series of cooking courses organised by the Csodalampa Foundation for those who would like to combine entertainment and learning with support for the foundation. The series of cooking classes is not a classic cooking school. Csodalampa offers  lifestyle cooking classes where participants learn to prepare both gourmet dishes and simpler everyday fare, using premium ingredients. The cooking classes will take place at exclusive locations  such as the Budapest Marriott Hotel, Corinthia Hotel Budapest, Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest, SOFITEL Budapest Chain Bridge, Budapest Hilton, Szamos Gourmet Ház and so on with the guidance of Hungarian and foreign chefs.

The mission of the Csodalampa Wish Granting Foundation is similar to that of Make-A-Wish in America: they fulfil wishes of children aged 3-18 suffering from life threatening illnesses such as leukaemia, cancer, muscular dystrophy, or those with organ transplants. During the last eight years, the Foundation has made it possible for 1,700 very sick children to see their dreams realised.  Fulfilled wishes include:  meeting celebrities, visiting the Euro Disney Park, playing with dolphins,  receiving a computer,  a camera, or playground equipment,   bringing   joy, happiness, and helping the children  on their long road to recovery.

So far, the Foundation has organised four charity cooking classes with great success.

In September 2011, the management of LIBRI Zrt cooked at the Budapest Marriott Hotel for Dalma’s dream to spend a few days in Paris.

In October and November 2011, GE Healthcare and and Comgame "576" Ltd. cooked for Tamas and Bence’s dream to see a football match in Barcelona.

In December, the management of Erste Bank worked for Patrick’ drummer set, the realisation of this wish has been organised with help of Patrick’s music teacher.

The Foundation would like to find new monthly participants for their teambuilding cooking and chocolate schools; therefore, they would like to request you to follow the programs on their website.

Should you decide to participate in one of their upcoming events so that they can make at least one more ill child happy, please contact Mrs. Éva Patzauer on +36 20 448-1557 or via email.
