«We have all had the experience of tasting something special that has lingered in our memories until this day.» ~ Isaac Cronin
There's no way around it. Polish food takes some time to prep, but believe me the journey is worth it once it's brought to life through home made food, good songs and great conversations :)
JUST BE COOKING presents…
Hands-On Wheat-Free Pierogi Workshop with Song!!!
Every culture has their comfort food and warm, hearty Polish pierogi are right up there with the best of them. In this fun, hands-on workshop, Maria Rozynska leads you through the process of kneading & rolling, filling & shaping, and boiling homemade wheat-free pierogi from scratch.
You’ll start the class with a warm borscht broth, then dive into learning how to roll, shape and stuff traditional Polish wheat-free pierogi with fillings including: classic dry cottage cheese & potato, savoury sauerkraut, mushroom and onion, as well as delicious dessert pierogi with sweet cherry filling.
There will also be a short presentation on Polish cuisine with songs sung by Maria while you eat! A communal meal follows each workshop where guests can eat their creations with a sour cream and warm caramelized onion topping and extra fixins provided by Maria while songs are sung. Leftovers can be taken home and frozen (if you can resist eating them on the way home ;)

— ABOUT MARIA ROZYNSKA
A self-made Polish chef, I grew up in a Polish household observing my mother, grandmother and great grandmother knead, roll, shape, mallet and whisk consistently yummy Polish cuisine picking up generations of knowledge. As the meals were always a feast, always a shot here, another song there, it was an event worth talking about and one I wanted to spread.
What started as a passion turned into a business. I now teach others how to make their own traditional Polish food, sharing the Polish dinner experience itself while keeping alive its recipes.
A communal meal follows each of my workshops where guests can eat their creations while songs are sung and stories shared :)
