Małgorzata: Although I qualified as an architect my career was actually focused on... fashion design. I still design clothes for friends and family and occasionally on commission.
Piotr: I worked as an architect for 40 years and now retired. My main occupation, actually by chance, became preserving food at home.
We both enjoy cooking albeit in different styles and according to different recipes. Malgorzata often cooks according to five elements theory, as well as gluten-free and vegetarian. Piotr cooks according to his intuition which is spot on as he improvises often and can surprise even the most sophisticated foodies. And since we both prepare a lot of food preserves, we have now accumulated a large cupboard of compotes, jams, chutneys, caramelised fruit and veg and gherkins which we often use in our recipes.
We live in an old flat in central Krakow together with our cat and a large number of plants that are scattered along every window to get as much light as possible.
We had a brilliant afternoon with Malgorzata and Piotr. They’re a live couple and it was so interesting to have some traditional polish food and drink. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone travelling to Kraków. Immerse yourself in the culture and join this lovely couple for lunch.
A really lovely evening at Małgorzata and Piotr’s apartment. The food was delicious and so was the cherry vodka.
We had happy evening with good dinner. Host was top!
Our meal and the visit to Malgorzata and Piotr's apartment was the highlight of my visit to Krakow. Every item on the menu was home made and tasted wonderful. This included the bread, the plum cordial, the cherry vodka, all the side dishes and main meals. There had been a lot of care given to the food. We learnt a lot about their lives and the history of Poland and Krakow.
We had a splendid meal and a very nice evening with Malgorzata, Piotr and 3 other guests. I was our first experience with eat-away but will try it again when visiting a destination where posible.
