In this fun, hands-on workshop, Maria Rozynska leads you through the process of kneading & rolling, filling & shaping, and boiling & frying homemade pierogi from scratch.
You’ll start the Pierogi class with a cool cup of kompot, a traditional sweet Polish beverage prepared from several kinds of dried fruit, then dive into learning how to make several traditional fillings including:
Mushrooms with Sauerkraut & Onions
Farmer's cheese with potato
Our fillings consist of just the various vegetables, fruit or dairy ingredients. There are no meat products included.
Maria will demonstrate the making & kneading of the dough, then provide individual amounts for each person to work with. She will provide fillings, tips and tricks and together we will make trays of pierogi, fit for a king or queen!
Singing while making food, or indeed during any work, is a deeply Polish tradition so while we work Maria will sing a traditional folk song or two!
The workshop finishes with a communal meal where you’ll get to try all your creations in class with a sour cream and warm caramelized onion topping. Extra Polish side dishes pre-made by Maria are also served and guests will be taking their own pierogi home (if you can resist eating them on the way ;)
This is not an event to be missed!
Until then, smacznego!
