Kraków, Poland

Our private cooking class will start with a welcome drink (tea and coffee) in the kitchen, followed by putting on aprons (which I provide) and washing our hands (disinfectant is also provided).

I will then give a very brief introduction to the history of Polish cuisine in general and the pierogi in particular. Then, together we’ll prepare the dough and the filling together, learning the secrets of making that special flavour. Once ready with these, we’ll fill the dough parcels with the filling and make the pierogi. Each participant will have their own board to prepare these dumplings, and I am on hand to assist at every stage.

Once prepared, we’ll start cooking the pierogi and… start eating them! There will be plenty to go around, and no-one will be left hungry. Finally, we’ll share some of my home-made cheesecake with salty caramel sauce, together with fresh coffee or tea.

My address is ul. Anczyca 11 / 5 (ie building number 11, apartment 5 on Anczyca Street) I’m very much looking forward to hosting you. It is very easy to get to, being about 10 minutes by taxi or 15 minutes by tram from Rynek Glowny, if you take a tram, choose number 1, 2 or 6 heading to SALWATOR and take the stop after that (it is the final stop where the trams turn around after the Salwator Pętla stop). It is then a pleasant 4-minute walk up the hill to the apartment. Here's a link to a map:

If you have any trouble at all finding my place, please call on +48 661 921 707. When you get to the building, please just ring number 5 and I will open the gate so you can come in and up to the top floor.

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!

We were served wonderful mushroom soup before trying out the pierogi’s we had all help to make. Desert was a divine cheesecake and coffee. Can’t recommend this experience strongly enough.

Pączki były niezłe, ale bardzo małe jak na tą cenę. Grunt, że to na cele charytatywne

In Marta’s place it is always nice and friendly. At the Easter workshop I was with my daughter and we enjoyed it both very much.

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!
