Every culture has their comfort-food dumplings, and warm, hearty Polish pierogies are right up there with the best of them. In this fun, hands-on workshop, Maria Rozynska leads you through the process of kneading & rolling, filling & shaping, and boiling & frying homemade pierogies from scratch.
You’ll start the class with a warm borscht broth, then dive into learning how to make several fillings including: classic dry cottage cheese & potato, savoury sauerkraut, mushroom and onion, as well as delicious dessert pierogies with a sweet fruit filling. There will also be a short presentation on Polish cuisine, and maybe even a traditional folk song or two! You’ll get a chance to try all the pierogies in class with a sour cream and warm caramelized onion topping, and extras can be taken home and frozen (if you can resist eating them on the way home).
Maria Rozynska quit her comfy government job to pursue her passion for cooking. A self-made Polish cook, she grew up in a Polish household observing her mother, grandmother and even great grandmother knead, roll, shape, mallet, and whisk up consistently yummy Polish cuisine. Maria now teaches other people how to make traditional Polish food. She hopes to share her love of her family’s food, the cooking experience itself and her personal Polish upbringing in a warm, fun environment. https://m.facebook.com/justbecooking
