Pierogi making and Christmas parties for small groups at my kitchen in Salwator.

Together let’s make the world’s best barszcz and have some fun. Workshop + supper + drinks (maximum group size 15).

About Marta

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!

Such a nice thing to do in Krakow! Our expectations were high due to all the good reviews, but Martas pierogi class surpassed them. Thank you so much for the really nice morning at your house! :)

Loved the class! We made a delicious variety of pierogis and enjoyed sampling all of the additional foods prepared by Marta. This was a fantastic class and we would definitely take another with Marta!

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 had the Polish Feast at Marta's as a group of 10. The food was incredibly delicious and Marta was a perfect host. We can highly recommend it!

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!

Pączki 10/10! Smakują potrójnie dobrze: bo smaczne, bo dochód idzie na szczytny cel, bo sam pomagałem przy ich smażeniu :-)
