- Polish hospitality at its most abundant
- Essential guide to Polish cuisine for the foodie visitor
Spend even a little time in Poland and you’ll learn that Polish cuisine is far more than just pierogi. But with this guided tour of Krakow designed for foodies, you’ll get an in-depth look into delectable regional cuisine, and how it affects the national character too. Expect to eat very well - skipping lunch is suggested as the tastings on offer will be substantial. You’ll be sampling cold cuts, traditional cheeses, regional puddings and of course a shot of Polish vodka, as you explore the historic streets of Krakow’s beautiful old town, and visit up to six carefully selected eating establishments.
Try Oscypek, a smoked cheese made from sheep’s milk from the mountains, zurek, a simple but hearty soup, and golabki, a cabbage roll wrapped around pork. Find out why Polish people sometimes crave the foods they had in the 1970s, why ‘fermented’ doesn’t mean ‘gone off’ and what links a typical Polish dessert with the Vatican, as you admire Baroque and Renaissance architectural highlights of Krakow and savour the thought of the next stopping place. This Krakow gift experience is the perfect way to see a new city, through its eating habits, and a fine start to an evening out.
