Special March Break Workshop for Kids 11-16 yrs
Making dumplings of one kind or another is a traditional family activity all around the world. Poland’s warm and hearty pierogi have become a popular Canadian comfort-food staple and are fun & easy to make.
In this class, pierogi maven and mom Maria Rozynska invites kids 6-10 to get hands-on to learn how to stuff and shape their own tasty Polish dumplings. They’ll be making 2 different kinds: a classic potato and cottage cheese filling, and a lightly sweet fruit-filled dessert pierogi.
Doughs and fillings will be pre-made (recipes will be provided), and kids will get the opportunity to roll out the dough, cut out the wrappers and stuff the individual pierogi. Maria will cook up a batch to snack on in class, and there will be plenty extra to take home and share with the family.
Parents are welcome to hang out and help – it’s March Break after all!
A self-taught cook, Maria Rozynska, grew up in a Polish household observing her mother, grandmother and great grandmother knead, roll, shape, mallet and whisk consistently yummy Polish cuisine picking up generations of knowledge. They were recipes traditions worth talking about and ones Maria wanted to spread. What started as a passion turned into a business. Through her cooking school Just Be Cooking, Maria now teaches others how to make their own traditional Polish food while singing songs from the Polish Highlands in order to keep alive her families recipes and traditions. A communal meal follows each of her workshops where guests can eat their creations while songs are sung and stories shared 🙂
Every week, The Depanneur invites TO’s best culinary talents to lead fun, hands-on workshops.
