Full description
Learn to cook a home-cooked Polish meal at a 3.5-hour cooking class in the Krakow home of a local chef. Make “pierogis” like a pro and shop at a local market for fresh ingredients, and more.

Meet your guide just outside Krakow city center, and follow them to a local market to experience its hustle and bustle on a Saturday morning. Get insider info on the fresh vegetables and produce for sale. Your guide will even teach you some Polish to make bartering at the market a breeze.

Then, go to the home of a Krakow family home, where you can put all that delicious produce to use. Get some cooking lessons from Krakow locals. Learn how to make a pierogi (filled dumplings typical to Poland and Central Europe).

As you cook, listen to traditional Polish classical, folk, or rock music to set the scene. Then, enjoy the fruits of your labor at a meal with a Polish family. Ask any questions you have about Polish culture. Your hosts will be happy to teach you about their country.
