Full description

Enjoy a day of cooking with a local in a Krakow home. Learn how to cook up a storm in the kitchen and learn 3 authentic Polish recipes.

Meet your guide outside the city center at the meeting point to begin the activity. See another side of Krakow, visit a local food market and get all the insider info on the fresh vegetables and produce used by locals. Learn some Polish phrases that a true Krakow native uses.

Next, head back to the house and immerse yourself in Polish culinary traditions during this hands-on cooking class. 

Roll up your sleeves and start cooking; your guide will teach you how to make 3 delicious dishes that you can recreate repeatedly. Discover how to prepare your fresh, high-quality ingredients that don't require a lot of complicated techniques to release their flavor. 

Start your cooking class by making a pierogi, a typical Polish dish similar to dumplings. Listen to Polish music, enhance your authentic cooking experience, and enjoy tasting as you cook.

Sit down and dine on the 3-course dishes you cooked paired with Polish beer to wash it down. Eat with the family, and learn about Polish culture and traditions as you get merry, Krakow style.

Enjoy a day out in a Krakow kitchen that you won't forget. Return home with something more than just souvenirs — traditional Polish cooking knowledge that will stay with you for life.

Honestly, this was the best part of our second trip to Kraków. The environment of the market and getting the opportunity to experience a different/some of my family’s culture was absolutely fantastic. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and genuinely interested in not only the activity but getting to know us, etc. She was perfect for this and such a lovely person. We had a great time and believe this was well worth the money and more.
