Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeitung Maria hat sehr angenehm vielfältige Einblicke in polnische Bräuche zu Weihnachten gegeben. Wir haben tolle Tricks zur Herstellung von pierogi kennengelernt und durften mit professioneller Anleitung selbst Hand anlegen. Es war ein schöner Abend!

Maria was the sweetest host and a great teacher in showing us how to make some popular Christmas Polish dishes. I would recommend her Christmas cooking class to anyone! She told us about lovely Polish traditions, shared stories and was even sweet enough to speak English and French to those in the class!

This was a super fun experience that allowed us not only to learn how to make Pierogi but also experience other traditional Polish Christmas foods. Maria shared many of the traditions that go into celebrating Christmas in Poland. Marie was organized and well prepared. This was time well spent!

Maria did her very best to get things organized and was welcoming in her communication. The evening itself, it was lovely to get all the information on the Polish culinary traditions of Xmas. Tomek taught me so many different shapes of pierogi! I had a lovely meal. And now I'm curious about the photos that they will soon send me. Thanks for this experience. And have a warm and loving Silvester, Maria and Tomek!
