15) Make Pierogi (Traditional Polish Dumplings) from scratch

No trip to Poland is complete unless you try the famous Polish dumplings. Or, even better, learn how to make them yourself.

The name of this dish probably derives from the Polish verb “to drink”, making pierogi the ultimate choice for party food. The class ends with pierogi lunch or dinner, so we strongly advise you to come hungry.

When: Sunday 31 at 10:00 (lunch around 1)

Price: €35 (10 spots available)
