We try to make all of our cooking classes top-notch, but once in a while we have one that our customers just can't get enough of. Our own Kim K., (100% Polish, by the way), taught a Polish class last year, using her family recipes. It was the first to fill up and was SO good, we had to run it again. The encore performance this Monday night certainly did not dissappoint. Her dill pickle soup brought rave reviews from the guests, many of whom are very accomplished cooks. Next came the best-ever pierogies. She demonstrated how she makes the dough, cuts them into small circles and then stuffs then with either a sauerkraut or potato mixture - both delicious. Their side kick was a mouth-watering cabbage rolls, slowly cooked in a tomato sauce with bacon. I believe everyone licked their plates.
As if that all wasn't enough, she then proceeded to teach her outstanding Polish Cheesecake.
Thanks, Kim, for sharing those old family recipes--indeed the most treasured.
