Poland has brought special genius to almost every field of endeavor, so it should not be surprising that a country that has produced so many geniuses, could also produce a cuisine of exceptional quality.

In this rare Masterclass, teacher, singer, chef and founder of Just Be Cooking, Maria Rozynska will teach you how to make dishes from her Polish upbringing. Paired with Eastern European songs by the all female band Blisk to fuse Polish sounds & cuisine together, you are sure to leave this class with a new understanding of this very unique culture.

You’ll start the Masterclass with a glass of red or white wine (juice also available) while nibbling on a welcome starter of Borscht with homemade uszka, a traditional Polish beetroot soup (served warm or chilled) with mushroom filled dumplings.

After a short introduction on Polish cuisine, you'll gather around the kitchen island and, working together in teams of two, learn tips and tricks on how to cook and bake TWO traditional Polish dishes from start to finish.

You Will Learn:

- How to make your own pierogi dough
- How to knead, roll, fill & shape pierogi from start to finish
- How to make three traditional vegetarian fillings from scratch
- How to make Sharlotka
- How to present it all beautifully on a plate

Singing while making food, or indeed during any work, is a deeply Polish tradition so while guests work, Maria will sing a traditional folk song or two.

Also, while guests sit back and eat after all their hard work, a LIVE performance by the all female band Blisk will take center stage, playing a mix of traditional Eastern European & Balkan songs!

Traditional music with classic Polish food made by you - what could be better than this?

The workshop finishes with a communal meal where Maria will be providing various extra dishes, each one with a strong Polish theme and history, such as Mizeria, a traditional mandolin sliced cucumber salad marinated in a salty sweet vinegar mixture served with a fresh creme and dill dressing. Pierogi will be served with the traditional warm caramelized onion topping! Yumm!

Host

Maria Rozynska

In April 2017 I quit my comfy Educational Sector job to pursue my passion for cooking, teaching and singing. That’s when Just Be Cooking was born - I want to share the recipes & traditions that I learned growing up in Poland and here in Canada.
