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!
I did this class with my sister over Zoom. We were in UK with Marta in Krakow. I was amazed at how this turned out, it tasted just like the sernik we had in Krakow! Great thing to do whilst in lockdown!
Absolutely brilliant day! Marta went above and beyond to accommodate us and make us feel welcome. Lots of extra fun and treats. The experience exceeded our expectations. Thank you!
Pączki 10/10! Smakują potrójnie dobrze: bo smaczne, bo dochód idzie na szczytny cel, bo sam pomagałem przy ich smażeniu :-)
We had the most amazing time. Marta was an excellent host, with a lovely home, and our group of 'cooks' was lovely. Lots of good conversation about food & Krakow & much more.
Lovely good & wicked vodka!
The workshop was great! I was travelling on my own, but Marta made me feel very welcome and it was so nice and cozy to cook and chat in her kitchen. The pierogi were super delicious - way better than at a restaurant. Thank you!
Great experience as always :)
This cooking class with Marta was the highlight of our time in Krakow. She was the consummate hostess, and we had so much fun making pierogi. She even let us try some of her homemade cherry vodka. I would sign up for anything she leads/organizes in a heartbeat.
We had a brilliant workshop with Marta. She was incredibly insightful, not just about pierogies but about the sights of Krakow as well as hearing a lot of interesting stories. We got to make 3 different types of pierogy and had some coffee and cake with them too so you definitely get your monies worth. Would recommend to anyone coming to Krakow!
A great time if you are looking to learn about the authentic food and preparation. It was a small group which was nice. I would do another class with Marta.
