The Polish Flavors cooking workshop demonstrates that “Polish food is more than just pierogis and kielbasa,” as Tanay Warerkar writes for The Greenpoint Gazette. That’s the goal of Karolina Gumpert, the Poland native leading the seven-week long series.

Polish Flavors, as the workshop is titled, examines a modern, contemporary take on traditional Polish food, and explores aspects of taste and visual presentation. It’s part of the six-month long Polish heritage celebration, Greenpoint. The Transition, set to continue through the end of the year.

Gumpert, who grew up near Krakow, Poland, and moved to Greenpoint three years ago, isn’t limiting her workshop to teaching about Polish cuisine.

And it’s not just about the food for Gumpert – as Polish people have moved away from Greenpoint, and as the neighborhood continues to change its persona, she also wants the workshop to be a place to reflect on those changes, and allow a space where people can talk about what the neighborhood means to them today and how they would like to see – a place to share the diverse, individual experiences that new people are bringing to the neighborhood. All in the background of mouth-watering Polish delicacies.
