What you'll do

We will take you virtually to our home to cook together and show you how to prepare the Polish national dish - pierogi (dumplings) according to our grandma recipe. We will spend a great time talking, eating and enjoying the stories from our family lives.
At first, we will prepare a proper, soft dough using flour, egg, and oil. Later, we roll it and, after leaving for a while, we will make small circles good enough to put inside a tasty feeling we will prepare together. It is possible to fill pierogi with literary everything, but we will make the so-called Russian type with a mix of cooked potato, white, farmer's cheese, and fried onion. After short cooking in hot, boiling water we will be ready to enjoy our meal. We will sit together on both sides on the screen, we will eat and make a toast Polish way. To do it, please have something to drink with you (can be Polish vodka if you want to be accurate, but it is really enough you have a beer, wine or even a glass of tea or coffee if you prefer). We will end the experience with some Polish expressions you can use to say goodbye to your new, online friends.
This virtual tour into Polish culture will help you not only to cook pierogi, but especially to learn more about Polish daily cuisine, folk tradition, and people. Your next, perfect pierogi you prepare by yourself for your friends or family will be a ​great sign of it.

Hey! It's Monika and together with Tomasz, Olga, Sabina,​ and Dominika - we are a group of Krakow natives who would like to invite you behind the scenes of the best aspects of Polish everyday life - food and cooking! We ourselves are travelers and love to meet people from different countries and cultures, we believe that the best way to do so is through the local cuisine, with a sip or two of a regional liquor. For all that, we not only want to give you a simple cooking class but also share our knowledge of polish traditions and history of Krakow. We have experience in guiding, cooking,​ and bartending and we are pierogi worshippers.

What an amazing experience and connection to our heritage! My sister-in-law set this up for my brother’s birthday. What a memorable experience!!! We had 6 different households in different time zones (Philadelphia, San Diego & Guam!!!!) join Tomasz in Poland, how cool! Directions and timing were great. My husband and I used gluten-free flour for me, and we were fair warned. It was challenging, but we will try again. We got the foundation of the pierogi making and can build on the recipe in the future to tweak it! Everyone else’s came out great! Thanks so much for a great quarantine activity!

This was a wonderful experience! Tomasz was a terrific host. We (in New York) participated with friends in Barcelona, and it was an amazing way to be “together” and learning something new when we’re unable to travel and see one another. Tomasz made sure to include cultural information in this class - we learned about the history of pierogi making in Poland and about local culture as well. Tomasz explained everything clearly and made the process easy; he even helped me make my pierogis gluten free, which was such a treat! Best of all, the pierogis were all delicious and we feel comfortable enough with them to make them again! Highly recommend.
