A lovely session getting to assemble two different flavours of pierogi - a meat one and an apple one - and the opportunity to sit with your fellow pierogi enthusiasts to enjoy your creations afterwards. The dough and other ingredients are all pre-prepared for you so it’s not so much a cooking class, though you do get to make the dumplings by hand yourself. I feel that there could have been a little more communication between the restaurant staff and ourselves, there was not much information given before the session began so the group were waiting and waiting patiently for someone to come and introduce themselves! I had great fun though, the pierogi were tasty and I got to meet some awesome travellers like myself!

Yummy pierogi in an intimate setting

I bought this class as a Christmas gift for my sister while she was visiting me. The chef, Krzystoff, was great, as was his translator, Aleksandra. The dough and fillings were prepared for us, so we got to focus on rolling the dough, and stuffing and sealing the pierogi. They did also send us the recipe, so we know how to make them ourselves at home. The one thing I wish I had known was that for any other items ordered from the restaurant, including drinks, you have to pay in cash, so I had to go to an ATM.

My wife and I tried this on our first day in Krakow and we enjoyed it. We have got also receipe and get to know how to do it so we can make dumplings at home. A chef prepares most of the ingredients and showed us how to roll the dough, choose filling, then how to put it together. The chef then cooked the food. Afterwards we got to eat everyones prepared food. Chef & Staff at the restaurant were really friendly. I would recommend this!
