Chef Remy Orlowski will present a night of cooking authentic Polish dishes as part of the Niagara-Wheatfield Continuing Education on March 20, just in time for the Easter holiday.
Orlowski will be sharing authentic Polish recipes taught her by her grandmother.
"My great grandparents came from Poland and my grandmother Babci taught me lots of cooking from scratch as I grew up with traditional recipes," Orlowski said.
Easter is very important in Polish culture and food plays a main role in it.
"I remember taking the basket of food to church as a kid with my grandmother to get blessed for Easter. Placek is the traditional sweet bread of Easter. Unfortunately not many people know how to make this," Orlowski said.
She also will be cooking fruit soup.
"Soup is a mainstay of the Polish diet. I always joke that Polish people will make soup out of anything on hand. The fruit soup is absolutely delicious," she said.
Polish sausage and golabki (Cabbage Rolls) also are on the menu.
"Fresh sausage is not as difficult to make as people might think. The golabki have always been a favorite of mine. They are definitely a Polish comfort food," she said.
Participants will enjoy their culinary creations at the end of class.
The class will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Edward Town Middle School, 2292 Saunders Settlement Road, Sanborn. Pre-registration is required. Go to the Niagara Wheatfield CSD website at www.nwcsd.k12.org (under "Adult Education"), or call Anita Muzzi at 215-3109.
