Punchki, patchki, poonchki--however you pronounce it, these delicious Polish treats have a dedicated following in Chicago! Now you can learn to make your own.
In this class, we'll talk about what makes a paczki distinct (they're not just jelly-filled donuts!) and a little about their history. Students will then get to make and fill their own paczki to take home or enjoy at the end of class.
Learning together in the garden, and kitchen, does much more than put fresh, nutritious food on the table. It helps build stronger communities, connect us to cultural heritage, improve public health and create a more sustainable, resilient city. Peterson Garden Project is a not-for-profit organization, and we're looking to inspire everyone we meet to grow and cook their own food and build community. If you love the taste of a homegrown tomato, are curious about growing food yourself, or are looking for a place to learn basic home cooking skills and make new friends over delicious food— then we're looking for you!
