Our culinary meeting takes place in the beautiful Polish countryside not far from Krakow – about 30km south of the city towards Lanckorona and Wadowice. Marta will prepare a traditional Polish meal with local produce, much of which is grown in her cottage garden. Every last Saturday of the month throughout the summer, you can join her in a magical garden in the heart of the countryside. We will sit down outside and enjoy local produce in the fresh air. For sure, there will be several well-known dishes, starting with a soup – probably chicken broth, or fresh vegetable soup, then a main course of meat grilled on an open fire, or goulash cooked on a traditional wooden stove. For dessert, look out for delicious cheesecake with chocolate sauce, sprinkled with wild berries from the garden. Sometimes we cook a traditional “prażone” on the fire – ie a cast iron cooking pot filled with potatoes, bacon, cabbage, onion, wild duck or beef. For vegetarians, I will happily prepare fresh dumplings and salads. Delicious! Afterwards, we can go for a stroll in the surrounding forest – if you’ve never before collected mushrooms, now’s the time to discover a new passion You can come to the Polish House with children, animals, even aliens… the house is always open to good people !
The price includes all drinks.

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!
