What you'll do

Christmas is by far the most important celebration in Poland. Almost all of the dishes that we serve on that day are cooked only once a year!

During this 4 course dinner you will taste the most popular Christmas food and learn how to make the famous Polish dumplings. Drinks included.

Try marinated herrings, taste beetroot soup with mushroom stuffed dumplings, MAKE pierogi with sauerkraut and last but not least, indulge yourself in the festive poppy seed dessert! Please, come hungry:-)

In addition to the meal, you will get to know the famous Polish Christmas traditions, such as breaking wafers or setting extra plate on the table.

This class is available only in December!

Maria did her very best to get things organized and was welcoming in her communication. The evening itself, it was lovely to get all the information on the Polish culinary traditions of Xmas. Tomek taught me so many different shapes of pierogi! I had a lovely meal. And now I'm curious about the photos that they will soon send me. Thanks for this experience. And have a warm and loving Silvester, Maria and Tomek!

It was lovely to make pierogi, but I had an expectation we would be making several dishes. While tasting many dishes, it seems only recipes/explanation provided for pierogi.

It was great to learn to make perogies. I had expected Maria to host as my interactions had been with her. However the evening was still very good and it ended up with 3 ppl in the group. Which allowed us to really relax and ask a lot of questions.

We had a great experience filled with good stories and the teachings of the polish dumplings were accurate and memorable. We were glad the dishes didn't contain any garlic. Thank you for the photos and recipies as well!

Amazing experience! I booked the dinner for my American friends who wanted to get to know Polish Xmas traditions and we all enjoyed it a lot. Loads of delicious food to eat and interesting stories to remember.
