Gluten Free Pierogi

November 29, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

This workshop is hosted by Nella Cucina, 876 Bathurst St.


In this fun, hands-on workshop, Maria Rozynska will lead you through the process of making traditional Polish pierogi from scratch.

We’ll start the Pierogi class with a cool cup of kompot, a traditional sweet Polish beverage prepared from several kinds of dried fruit. There will also be a short presentation on Polish cuisine, then we roll up our sleeves (literally!) and dive into learning how to make traditional Polish pierogies with various fillings, including:

  • Farmer’s cheese with potato & onion
  • Savoury sauerkraut with mushroom & onion
  • Sweet prunes, for delicious dessert pierogies!

Maria will demonstrate the making & kneading of both types of dough (Gluten-Free & Regular), then guests will get to make their own. Fillings will also be demonstrated with guests participating in their making. Then we roll, cut, fill, shape, and boil trays of pierogi fit for a king and queen!

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!

The workshop finishes with a communal meal. 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.  Pierogies will be served with the traditional warm caramelized onion topping! Yumm!
