When you think about Polish cuisine, there is one thing that immediately pops up in your mind and that is definately „pierogi”. You come to Warsaw, Krakow or Gdansk and (un)suprisingly you see that all English-speaking places offer them. Deep in your heart you know that there must be something more. If you want to discover real Polish cuisine, join Eat Polska tour.
Poland boasts of being one of the best manufacturers of vodka in the world. It is also a place which many imagine to be the country where people have a glass of vodka for breakfast, then one for lunch and another before going to bed. Is that all true? Our Vodka Tour will answer all the questions, including those you may be afraid to ask!
The Food Tour gives you an opportunity to taste fantastic Polish dishes and hear the stories behind them. You will learn why Poles complain about the quality of bread, why they somethimes long for food produced in the 70’s, why you can’t trust the invitation „for a cup of coffee.” You will visit 4 establishments, so be prepared for a full meal (and a dessert, of course). There will be also some walking too, so a pair of comfortable shoes would be a good option.
First of all, this is NOT a pub crawl. We want to deliver an expert but also fun way of understanding Polish vodka culture. We will taste different kinds of vodka and pair them with typical vodka food. A local experienced guide speaking fluent English will take you to 4 bars and restaurants in the city centre serving best and most intriguing Polish vodkas to tell you stories, anecdotes and answer million of questions like: Is there a more Polish beverage than vodka? Is there a way to say no to vodka? Was it invented in Poland or Russia? Is there just one kind of vodka? We know it all!:)
Those stories about Christmas we’re going to tell you, we know them from our experience because this is how we celebrate. The strawberry jam recipe? That’s how our grandmothers used to do it! And that funny vodka ad we will show you: that’s the one we remember from when we were young. The stories you will hear are based on knowledge and research but you can’t beat personal experience when it comes to food culture stories and we have it!
