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!
The experience was unforgettable. Lovely setting, incredibly warm and interesting people to meet, lots of laughing...this was an evening I will remember for a long time. I have never been to this type of dinner before and absolutely loved it, it felt as a family dinner or meeting old friends. And I have yet to mention the food! An amazing meal, the best you can get to experience Poland. I am actually Polish and participated together with my American boyfriend, we had already spent a week going to great Polish restaurants and trying all the local food...but this was something else. You just can't beat grandma's recipes and homemade food, made with care and love. Marta is an incredible cook and I really enjoyed her laid back and open approach while serving this amazing 4-course meal. I can't recommend the experience enough and look forward to repeating it!
I highly recommend a unique and wonderful dinner with Marta and her family in their home. I was able to ask questions about Poland and different places I planned to see. I also met a few other couples who signed up for the dinner here and discuss their travels. The Polish meal they cooked was delicious. I had a week in Kraków and am so glad I was able to spend one evening with Marta & her beautiful family who served such a great meal. I give her a 10+
Thank you and gorgeous Tallulah for an wonderful evening in your home in Krakow. Lovely food and great atmosphere with nice people. A good opportunity to learn more about local food and way of living. We will recommend the concept to our friends here in Norway.
We had a lovely evening: The apartment was in a really interesting place overlooking Krakow. When we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and Marta introduced us to her family and friends. We got to try some delicious traditional food, including borscht soup, so all in all it was a memorable evening, I think my only slight disappointment was that there were five other English speaking guests there, though this apart I did get to meet some very delightful Polish people and get some insight into how the Krakowions lived.
Często jadam na mieście, nie tylko w Krakowie, ale atmosfery i jedzenia jakie jest u Marty nie da się podrobić nigdzie! Marta gotuje nie tylko przepysznie, gotuje z serca. I to czuć w każdym daniu, obojętnie czy to barszcz, curry czy sushi. Do tego nie ma sztywnej atmosfery, każdy czuję się jak u siebie. Luz, rozmowy na każdy temat i najlepsze żarcie, którego nigdy za mało - to spotkacie u Marty.
A wonderful evening. We were warmly welcomed by the family and their friends. Other guests were there too. We thoroughly enjoyed talking to the family and gaining insights about Polish life, times, interests, politics , history etc. The dinner was delicious, particularly the 'pierogi' . It is such a great idea to offer this opportunity to meet and dine with a local Polish family, and we shall recommend you to our friends!
A great dinner with very nice hosts. Dziękuję za wszystko. Jesteśmy bardzo zadowoleni wieczór z tobą i naszej podróży do Krakowa, bardzo... :)
Thanks for the fantastic evening in your lovely apartment! Marta and Mark are fantastic, interesting and welcoming hosts. We immediately felt at home. We had a fabulous Polish three course meal accompanied by beer and great wine. The food was so good and some of us, hating beetroot, loved the soup, so different from what we know. Goulash as a main course and on top we got a warm apple pie for desert, all very yummy. We were a group of eight German friends and most of them never had this experience of having dinner with locals in their home. They were really excited and already decided to do something like that again. If you ever come to Germany, let us know and be our guest!!
Thank you again for the wonderful evening! The food was delicious and I am still dreaming of the apple pie <3 Both Marta and Mark are amazing hosts with great stories to tell!
