Pierogi Power Cooking Class
Our culinary meeting takes place in Salwator, one of Krakow's prettiest and most historical areas, not far from the Old Town – about 12 min by tram and 10 by taxi. Our cooking class will start with a welcome drink (tea and coffee) in the kitchen, followed by putting on aprons (which I provide) and washing our hands (disinfectant is also provided). I will then give a very brief introduction to the history of Polish cuisine in general and the pierogi in particular. Then, together we’ll prepare the dough and the filling together, learning the secrets of making that special flavour. Once ready with these, we’ll fill the dough parcels with the filling and make the pierogi. Each participant will have their own board to prepare these dumplings, and I am on hand to assist at every stage. Once prepared, we’ll start cooking the pierogi and… start eating them! There will be plenty to go around, and no-one will be left hungry. Finally, we’ll share some of my home-made cheesecake with salty caramel sauce, together with fresh coffee or tea.
