Halooo nice people ! I will be cooking a traditional Polish meal "BIG FAT POL " I use absolutely fresh ingredients which come from our local market or directly from our own cottage garden in the countryside outside Krakow ( Marcyporeba ). I enjoy taking the time to cook something really special for my guests, and also spending time sharing my experiences of life in Krakow Life, and finding out about yours!
My favourite flavour has to be that of wild mushrooms. Half of my village is covered with forests, so mushrooms are everywhere, but still very precious. I use them in many different dishes starting with mushroom carpaccio with truffle oil, mushroom soup with sour cream topped with dry porcini, stuffed cabbage with wild mushrooms and groats, kaszotto (a kind of risotto) with... surprise : ) mushrooms, parsnip and parmesan . Despite working with very seasonal products I always find a place for forest mushrooms – each time in a different form.
Some alcohol included
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!
