Kraków, Poland

Once upon a time, an old woman and her husband lived alone in a little old house. The couple had no children, and being lonely, the woman decided to make a boy of gingerbread. She carefully mixed the batter, rolled out the dough, and cut out out a very nice gingerbread man... Here comes the Gingerbread Workshop! Planning to visit Poland? Or you are already here in Krakow? Would you like to taste some delicious local specialties? Join us for the perfect kick-off to the holiday season! Work together with family or friends or strangers! Strangers are just the new friends you have not met yet : ) Get together to decorate a unique gingerbread house. We provide all the ingredients so that you can have a great time and go home with a marvellous gingerbread creation to enjoy throughout the Christmas season! Because of the limited number of spaces (10) we will probably live stream the cooking event so others who can't make it can still enjoy the workshop! All ages welcome : )

For the last 5 years, I have been teaching people how to cook delicious food at my home, and I also run food workshops such as the Pierogi Power Workshop, Fermentation Workshop and more. Recently I was the host of a big food event for The Krakow Pierogi Festival and Harvest Festival. (I also appear regularly on TV and radio as a guest, discussing subjects related to home cooking, the sharing economy and food tech.) I’ve always enjoyed sharing my knowledge of my beautiful hometown, and more about the art of Polish cuisine, both through the website and with all the wonderful travellers I meet in person.My grandmother and my mother were great cooks. That means delicious, home-made food freshly-prepared.Restaurants are great, but sometimes it seems it would be better to enjoy a home-cooked meal with someone who can also tell me a bit more about their experiences, their lives and their cities. So, I’ve decided to do exactly that. I cook for up to 14 people at my home in Krakow and you’re invited. Please join me!

She had to cancel because of a family health situation, and gave me sufficient notice. She also offered to refund the fee.

Excellent cooking class! This is the second time I have done this cooking class with Marta and 3 years later, it was just as great as the first time. Even with a larger group, she made sure everyone had an opportunity to be hands on. Highly recommend!

We started out with some delicious starters and beer and got a very warm welcome from Martha while setteling in. From there, we started to make the delicious dumplings, which was a perfect choice of food given the size of our group (a total of 21 persons!). Martha was an incredible host with loads of experience and expertise in the food the was creating. She had many interesting facts about Poland and its culinary kitchen and generally just made sure all of us had a great and very unique time.

The night ended with an amazing homemade cheesecake and apple pie, which was a perfect ending to an already incredible evening.

I can not recommend this experience enough!
