Pierogi Cooking Class at Zamenhofa // Eataway

Sun 17th
Pierogi Cooking Class at Zamenhofa // Eataway

These famous dumplings are one of the most well-known, recognizable and, above all, beloved Polish dishes. A real crowd-pleaser, pierogi have easily maintained their popularity over the years as the multitude of stuffing that can be used to fill these dough pouches is virtually endless. You’ll find that their soft and chewy shell can conceal any number of different meats, cheeses, vegetables or fruit, making pierogi one of the most versatile dishes around. Preparing great dumplings, however, is a true art. Traditionally, it has been the grandmothers who passed on their often top-secret knowledge to younger generations. In turn, at Eataway we have four pierogi-blooded women who are ready to pass these secrets on to lovely people like you who will keep their traditions alive. Their names are Gosia & Piotr, Hanna, Marta & Marta.

From scratch, our cooks will teach you how to create the tastiest pastry, mould the most perfectly shaped dumplings, and serve them with typical Polish garnishes, sauces and sides.

“We both enjoy cooking, albeit in different styles and according to different recipes. Malgorzata often cooks according to the five elements theory, as well as gluten-free and vegetarian. Piotr cooks according to his intuition which is spot on as he improvises often and can surprise even the most sophisticated foodies. And since we both prepare a lot of food preserves, we have now accumulated a large cupboard of compotes, jams, chutneys, caramelised fruit and veg and gherkins which we often use in our recipes.”

Eataway’s classiest cooks, Gosia and Piotr, will be hosting pierogi classes from their beautiful and historical Zamenhofa apartment in Krakow. This pair of former architects have absolutely bundles of experience from their long and fascinating lives. Now retired, they are free to concentrate on the world of food which has always enthralled them. Pierogi experts, they can also teach you about so much other stuff, including food preservation with which Piotr has a deep connection.

This wonderful community are encouraging you to do just that!
