Cooking Class full of warmth
After all the recent unseasonably warm weather is lulling us into thinking that we wont be getting cld again. It was actually a surprise when I woke up to snow the other morning. But it is bound to get cold before spring comes an d don’t you want to be ready? Polska Kuchnia taught three classic  Polish soups this past Sunday, January 20.  You can call Tad at 330-427- 2752 to learn more about upcoming classes and how to sign up for the whole course and receive discounts. PYTown friend and noted food blogger Barbara Rolek has even devoted some copy to it. She says that Polish soups are divided into different categories. Did you know pineapple and coconut are uber popular in Eastern Europe even in soup? Check it out

Karnival Celebration saved from omission
Carnival -- the season between Three Kings Day and Ash Wednesday -- is in full swing. We thought that with the closing of The Youngstown Club that it might mark the end of our favorite pre-Lenten celebration, but I am excited to say that our friend Katie Dodd of YTown Club fame has come to our rescue by welcoming us to her new home. Ostatki: A Polish Carnival Celebration, sponsored by Zywiec Beer and Vesica vodka,  Saturday, February 9, 2013 7 PM at The Magic Tree Pub & Eatery in Boardman. It will have all your favorite events and activities including guided tastings of Polish vodka, beers, wine and liquors complimented by a food pairing buffet. Live music will start the evening as guests enjoy basket raffles, trivia games and desserts. The evening will climax with the presentation of the celebratory pączki, special oversized donuts with a hidden surprise for one lucky winner! Learn more about it here

Innovative Vodka Cocktails part of the fun
And don’t forget our Annual Vodka Cocktail Contest, sponsored by Vesica Vodka. It is open to professional and amateur bartendershere

The beginning of a new Fat Tuesday tradition
Remember how PYTown traveled to Hamtramck, MI a couple of years ago to party and celebrate the beginning of Lent? This year we decided that we could bring that tradition to YOU! So plan to start your Fat Tuesday in a festive fashion by joining us for breakfast celebration complete with delicious pączki and kielbasa omelets as we host our first ever Pączki, Polkas and Pivo (translated as Donuts, Dancing and Draught) on Tuesday morning February 12 from 6 --10:30 AM at Kravitz Delicatessen on Belmont Avenue. Larry & Diana Walk of Happy Polkaland will be there to provide the happiest of music for toe tapping as well as games and giveaways. Learn more here

Place your annual pączki order
Of course you can still place your order for pączki in advance…you will just pick it up that morning and enjoy the fun! The Krakowiaki Folk Circle has enlisted the help of Kiedrowski’s Simply Delicious Bakery to supply their pączki sale and are able to offer a whole new set of flavors, including the famous rose hip jam! A relative unknown in our region, this Lake Erie bakery was named "The Best Bakery in America" by the Baking Channel in 2011 and was even featured on “The Martha Stewart Show.” Remember, proceeds go to benefit the children’s language and dance program! Order form will be available for download soon.

More to Polish food then pierogi
Everytime PolishYoungstown hosts an event and tries to NOT serve the “Polish platter, we are harassed into changing our minds. However, the menus in Poland are not nearly so static.
