The Polish Cooking Show is one part cooking and one part history, all wrapped up with two charismatic cooks in the kitchen: newlywed Natalie Rokita (Czupta) and her mother-in-law Mama Ala.
Poland is known for its unique, delicious cuisine and strong family bonds. Nowhere is that more prevalent than in the Polish communities in and around Chicago.
There are over 9.15 million Polish Americans living in the United States. Chicago is the U.S. city with the highest percentage of its population being Polish (7.3%).
Shot in Chicago, The Polish Cooking Show is a half hour adventure that brings to life the Polish tradition of the mother-in-law teaching her daughter-in-law the recipes of the family and cultural history that goes with them. Each episode is quite literally a verbal transfer of heritage in the kitchen.
Learn delicious Polish family recipes handed down over the generations, blended with interesting stories about Polish history and culture.
