What do we do?

We teach you how to make a single dish, chosen from any one of several different cultures, accompanied by LIVE singing and music from that particular heritage.

EXAMPLE: Polish Pierogi Workshops 
Our Polish Pierogi Workshops teach guests how to make authentic pierogi, accompanied by traditional songs & music from the Polish/Ukrainian highlands. This is wrapped up with a communal meal at the end! These are very social, fun and engaging events, with a strong cultural component.

Each Workshop holds about 8 - 14 people and runs for 2.5 - 3 hrs.

I went to Maria's pierogi workshop at The Dépanneur and it was such fun. I would definitely recommend it.

LIVE Music & Singing

Music & singing while making food is a deeply Polish tradition.
EXAMPLE: Polish Pierogi Workshops 
Maria sings at every on the workshop (she is a trained choral soprano). We might also have thePolky Village Band providing live traditional Polish/Ukrainian music! They are led by Ewalina Ferenc and are one of the premier folk bands in the GTA.

Locations

We host our workshops at several different locations within Toronto. 
Each spot has a very distinct personality and style, allowing us to stay fresh and new with each event!
You can learn more about each location (e.g. Parking, TTC access, etc)  here.

Communal Meal

In the spirit of working & eating together, everyone puts in 3-5 of their own creations into a common pot.
EXAMPLE: Polish Pierogi Workshops 
With our Pierogi class, these are immediately cooked and served with sour cream and warm caramelized onion toppings. We also provide various extra dishes, each one with a strong Polish theme and history.

The remainders can be taken home and frozen - if you can resist eating them on the way home! ;)
