Do not miss this enjoyable authentic opportunity to experience first hand Polish culture and cuisine. Our guide Magda and her grandmother are five-star ambassadors. The tour begins with a type of 'scavenger hunt' at a Saturday morning neighborhood market. Shopping for the our lunch ingredients included numerous fun surprises. This tour is a must do - you feel immediately at home and not only do you learn how to make a very delicious Polish dish but you also gain new friends in Poland.

Fantastic class with wonderful hosts! Monica and her husband are so welcoming and patient. They prepared us a light breakfast before starting our cooking class and showed us how to make delicious pierogi which we enjoyed for lunch after as well as some other samples of traditional polish food they had prepared. Highly recommend spending a morning enjoying this great class!!

Wow....this was the best experience of our trip so far. Magda, our beautiful host met us at the agreed location then took us to the local market. She gave us a list of food to buy in order to make the Pierogi and then let us use a little Polish and a lot of sign language to get the ingredients. Once we had achieved our first task, she took us to her flat where we met her gorgeous grandmother. We the learnt how to make Pierogi and learnt a lot more about Polish culture and food. It was an amazing experience and we came away feeling very happy and full. Highly recommend this tour and greatly appreciate the time that Magda and her grandmother gave us.

A home cooking class is a sensational way to meet new people as well as locals, experience their culture, and of course learn about Polish cooking. With a fantastic guide Tomasz, he lead our small group through the markets where we had to flex our Polish language skills whilst learning about different foods. The day was a sensational experience, with our guide's mother playing host in her home - Anna. It was a brilliant combination and truly made the day a far richer experience. I definitely recommend this cooking tour/class - you won't be disappointed.

I REALLY enjoyed this class! And would recommend it to anyone who would like a different sort of travel experience. There were a lot of side benefits to the class. For one thing, we went to a large and colorful market that I otherwise would have missed to buy our ingredients, we took public transportation to a community outside the normal tourist areas, we went to someone's home where we were greeted by her grandmother who helped a lot with the cooking,. The end product was delicious and I was sorry when it was time to leave.

This Cooking Class was a highlight of our visit to Krakow.
Our very helpful, charming, perfect English speaking Guide Monica waited for us at the given time and place. We got money to go to the market, lovely and lively market! And we shopped for our lunch, which was fun.
At home Stefano greeted us kindly and learned us how to make the Russian Pierogi and we made them and we had a very nice lunch with more goodies from the market. Our hosts go out of their way to tell about Krakow history, family life and Monica brought us back to the Hotel.
Highly recommended!

First, getting to the Dauna tram stop was very easy from the Market Square. Shopping in the market was a lot of fun. The hosts were exceedingly friendly and talking with them made me feel very welcome in Poland. The pierogies we made were simple and delicious - I've since used that recipe at home to make more. This is a great tour, especially if you are traveling solo.
