Polish Easter Feast

"Gość w Dom, Bóg w Dom" ("A Guest in the Home is God in the Home")

Easter in Poland is the most important holiday, even more important than Christmas. The entire week before Easter is called Holy Week, and during that time there are a lot of things going on here. 40 something years ago I was born on Palm Sunday / you aren't just lazy-you are super lazy : ) and I always go to the church around this time with my palm.

About the cook, Marta

verified host

Hello! I’m Marta, I'm sculptor, but i also love cooking. I’ve always enjoyed sharing my knowledge of my beautiful home town, and more about art of fermented foods/probiotics/prebiotics, both through the website I run eataway.com and with all the wonderful travellers I meet in person.

I also love cooking. That means delicious, home-made food freshly-prepared for my family and friends, and fun evenings of conversation and shared experiences. I’ve often thought when travelling myself how great it would be to have a meal with a local person.

Restaurants are great, but sometimes it seems it would be better to enjoy a home-cooked meal with someone who can also tell me a bit more about their experiences, their lives and their cities. So, I’ve decided to do exactly that. I cook for up to 12 people at my home in Krakow every Wednesday, sometimes Saturdays from around 7pm. And you’re invited. Please join me!
