What We Do:

We host cultural cooking workshops with songs and music from that particular heritage.

For example, our Polish Pierogi Workshops teach you to make authentic pierogi, accompanied by live singing & music and wrapped up with  a communal meal at the end!

These are very social, fun and engaging events, with a strong cultural component.

Workshop sizes are generally 8 - 14 people (depending on if Public or Private) and run for 2.5 - 3 hrs. 

We currently host Polish Cooking Workshops and in 2018 we will be expanding into French Cooking!

Polish Workshops 

Guests are very important in Polish custom. Each guest to the workshop is offered a classic Polish appetizer such as borscht, a heartwarming beetroot broth.

A short presentation about Polish food & culture follows and then we roll up our sleeves and dive into learning to make that workshop’s traditional Polish dish!

(Naturally all aprons, rollers, ingredients & utensils are provided).
Music & singing while making food, or indeed during any work, is a deeply Polish tradition; depending on the workshop either Maria will be singing (she is a trained choral soprano) or we might have the Polky Village Band providing live traditional Polish/Ukrainian music

Here is an example of Maria's singing:
Each workshop finishes with a communal meal. We provide various extra dishes, each one with a strong Polish theme and history. For example, with the piergoi workshop we also serve sour cream and warm caramelized onion toppings. The remainders can be taken home and frozen - if you can resist eating them on the way home! ;)

"In a nutshell, I teach people how to make traditional Polish food while singing songs from the Polish Highlands. These are dishes that I have cooked, served and eaten my whole life, as well as the songs that I heard growing up. I’m trying to preserve and pass on this deep heritage of traditional recipes and music, the delicate fruit of the labour by past generations."
