Description

Karol J. Wojtyla, known as John Paul II since his October 1978 election to the papacy, was born in Wadowice, a small city 50 kilometres from Cracow, on May 18, 1920.

This mountain climbing Polish Pope was so filled with the love of God it was contagious. A talented and gifted "man of letters", a playwright, a philosopher, an intellectual giant, a poet, but more importantly, a genuine human being with a heart that embraced the whole world. From his hometown we will try 4 different recipes from the village restaurants.

From Dobra Karma we start with Boletus soup with puff croutons, from Dvorak Mikolaja schabowy salad, Pestka’s roast duck with lingonberries and finish with Polish Papal Crema Cake from Galicjanka. We will sip on his favorite red wines from Beaujolais, complementary of course.

This class meets on the main level in the Education Wing.

MATERIALS
Our cooking classes are held in our commercial kitchen. You will be seated at a counter on countertop stools, so please wear comfortable clothing. Layers are best, the temperature fluctuates often.
