Next, settle into your work station and learn to prepare traditional Polish dishes: you'll make two different types of pierogi as well as another classic dish such as buckwheat pancakes with salmon or white sausage.

Over the course of this class, the chef will tell you the history of Polish vodka, explain how it is produced, and provide you with 7-8 shots of traditional Polish vodkas, including potato vodka, rye vodka, Zubrowka bison grass vodka, Krupnik herb vodka, and vodkas flavored with quince, cherry, hazelnut, and caramel. The course takes around 4 hours. You'll leave with a book of recipes, a certificate of participation, a small gift, and a welter of culinary facts and trivia. There are vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, lactose free menus available. Please make sure to inform the local service provider about them at least one week prior to the class. Be prepared that in case of allergies you might prepare a different dish than the rest of the group.

great food and great fun

Hands down, the best thing to do in Warsaw! Especially if you want to get to know the culture, the people and have fun, instead of dying of boredom in all the war museums in this country!

Amazing Experience - a must-do in Warsaw!
Aug 2019
This cooking class has been one of our favorite travel experiences we have ever done! Magda was truly the best host and instructor, and she makes the class so much fun. We met some amazing people who were also taking the class, and we could not have asked for better company. And to top it all off, the perogis we made were the best we have had in Poland. We cannot recommend taking this cooking class enough!

Highlight of a trip to Poland-a must do!
Jul 2019 • Friends
Our group attended this class in Warsaw. It was held on the ninth floor of a high rise building. It is a bit challenging to find. Tip-once you get to the address, take the alley to the left of the building and it opens up into a courtyard. Go into the courtyard and then you will see the building. Magda and her team were excellent hosts. We made new friends (a total of 9 were in our class) and together we learned how to make pierogi. There is lots of food! We opted to to do the vodka tasting and glad we did.

Suberb evening of cookery, shots and Polish delicacies
Apr 2019 • Family
We had a brilliant evening, Magda was such a great hostess and walked us through Polish cuisine including Polish traditions and history, delicacies and cooking pancakes and pierogi dumplings. Lost count of the shots we had as well as Polish cider and beer. Thoroughly entertaining evening, totally recommend it.

So much fun!
Apr 2019 • Couples
My wife and I signed up for this not really knowing what to expect. It turned out to be one of the best holiday experiences we've had... between our "teacher" Magda and the mix of, em, trainee chefs on the day (an electic bunch made up of 3 ladies from Up-State New York, 2 ladies from Baltimore, a couple from Belgium and us two Irish), we had four hours of a complete blast!! When working hard in the kitchen, it seemed natural to have your first shot of vodka at 11am. Several more shots of various types of vodka followed over the course of the day - the crowd becoming more and more boisterous, as we prefected our culinery skills. Somehow or other we all made it through to the final award ceremony and were duly presented with our scrolls and wooden spatulas! Whether I ever make pierogi again is debatable. Whether we remember the fun day we had is however certain. Thanks Magda and all who played their part in a day not to be forgotten!!

Highly recommend it... Get the directions!
Feb 2019 • Solo
Ditto to all the reviews. Magda is amazing. Everything is simple and yummy. Went by myself and had a great time.

Tip: Mapping out the address, you don't end up at the entrance. I had to call. Apparently, depending on where you book, you get directions on finding the entrance (side of the building). I booked directly via their website (which was more affordable) but had to call to figure out how to get to the class.

So much fun!
Nov 2018 • Solo
This was a great class and such a fun experience! I did a Friday evening class with Magda. She was excellent! She was attentive with the instruction, so I really did learn how to make pancakes and pierogis. Best of all, she made the class relaxed and fun. I was in the class with various couples who did not know each other and by the end of the class we were all talking and laughing together. This class was my favorite thing that I did in Warsaw. The class was well-organized and well-equipped. The studio itself is really nice. Great value. I can also recommend the liquor option. We got to try various kinds of Polish drinks. You will not regret this class, especially if you end up in Magda's class!

Just Like Grandma Made
Sep 2018 • Solo
I attended a morning class in September. Chef Magda was patient and fun. It was great to get to know the other class participants and their Polish heritage. A huge amount of food, so go hungry. The recipes were not on the website but if you email them, they will send them to you. Definitely worth the price!

Great Fun
Sep 2018 • Couples
I participated in the Polish Cooking Class in Warsaw in September. There were only 6 people that showed up. It was supposed to be 8. We waited a little while for the late couple that showed and a bit longer for the people who didn't. But, it was a great class. We made apple pancakes and had them with different toppings. It was very very good. We made dumplings with cheese and potato and with meat fillings. They were interesting to make and we sampled our cooking with various toppings and there were many other tasty things to eat as well. We did the vodka tasting and it was very good, we also had beer. If you don't drink, you get water and apple juice. We had alot of laughs and Magda our chef was amazing. She was entertaining and fun and interested in where we were from. She was great!!!!! We ended with desert and got our certificates for graduating the cooking course. We took pictures of everyone receiving their diploma. It was a fun night and we ate great. Well, worth the price. I highly recommend it.
