Poland is breathtaking! Our culinary trip to Lower Silesia

‘Travelling through Poland is awesome. This is truly beautiful! We have to show it to others!’ This is what you could hear us shout when we were coming back from Krakow 2 years ago after launching the second branch of Eat Polska. It is 2016 now and we’re lucky to have a team of guides big enough to allow some of us to leave the cities and explore regions of Poland that have lured us forever. This is how we (Beata and Michał) have recently spent a week village-and-palace-hopping in Dolny Śląsk (Lower Silesia) which is one of the most mesmerizing regions of Poland you absolutely mustn’t miss when visiting our country.

Polish Food to Look Out for in the Spring

Even though summer is still a couple of months away, we know that great things are waiting along the way—and, like most great things, they’re edible! Come join us in the search for Polish springtime must-haves.

The Ultimate Warsaw Pierogi Test

The deal is simple: you come to Poland and MUST try pierogi. We live here and, in fact, rarely eat them out. Check this yourselves: ask a random Polish person where to get the best pierogi in town and they will all tell you ‘grandma’s’! Not very helpful, is it? So still bearing in mind that there’s no place like home for this classic Polish fare, we decided to spend the weekend having ruskie, z mięsem, z kapustą i grzybami and a bunch of other, more ‘experimental’ fillings of pierogi to give you the definite answer to the question: where the best pierogi are served in Warsaw?

You are seated in a restaurant and you’re trying to make it through the menu. You know that feta, sun-dried tomatoes, or smoked salmon do not sound very Polish, but there are so many options. What to choose, which filling is the best? Here is our top 5!
