Trzy lata temu, dokładnie w Tłusty Czwartek, razem z Igorem zostaliśmy zaproszeni do programu Pytanie na śniadanie, żeby na żywo smażyć pączki ;) To była świetna zabawa, ale i ogromny stres przed kamerami. Bo z pączkami wcale nie jest tak łatwo. Powinny być przygotowywane ze spokojem i dbałością ;)
W tamtym roku przygotowywałam pączki u siebie w domu razem z Konradem – profesjonalnym cukiernikiem i wspaniałym facetem. W jedną noc usmażyliśmy 1300 pączków charytatywnie dla Skawińskiego schroniska dla zwierząt.
Wielu z Was pytało mnie o to, jak zrobić pyszne pączki z różaną marmoladą jak marzenie. Stąd właśnie pomysł warsztatów. Będziemy robić pączki według tradycyjnego przepisu – czekam na Was!
Three years ago, precisely on Fat Thursday, I was invited to prepare homemade doughnuts during a breakfast TV show. My friend Igor joined the adventure and it was great fun and a lot of stress on the way. Making doughnuts in TV studio is a challenge, believe me! Doughnut pastry should be prepared with care in a relaxed atmosphere. Yeast needs warmth and time to grow - none of these happen when you’re being broadcasted live. We managed, though!
Last year I invited Konrad, who’s a top-class pastry chef to make doughnuts with me at my home in Krakow, and overnight we managed to cook 1300 doughnuts for animal charity! Many of you asked for the recipe, so this year we have decided to run a Doughnut Workshop for those who wants to learn our secret recipe for fresh and delicious home-made doughnuts! We’ll put our traditional recipe to use on February and you are more than welcome to join us so you can learn how to make your doughnuts fresh and tasty like heaven : ) Pączki baking is both an art and science, and it’s important to understand what your ideal dough consistency should feel like in your hands. Join us!
Hi, I'm a co-founder of Eataway which connects people with home cooks and hosts all around the world. For the last 5 years, I have been teaching people how to cook delicious food at my home, and I also run food workshops such as the Pierogi Power Workshop, Fermentation Workshop and more. Recently I was the host of a big food event for The Krakow Pierogi Festival and Harvest Festival. (I also appear regularly on TV and radio as a guest, discussing subjects related to home cooking, the sharing economy and food tech.) I’ve always enjoyed sharing my knowledge of my beautiful hometown, and more about the art of Polish cuisine, both through the website and with all the wonderful travellers I meet in person.
My grandmother and my mother were great cooks. That means delicious, home-made food freshly-prepared.
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 14 people at my home in Krakow and you’re invited. Please join me!
