WHO WILL BE OUR GUIDE?
You will be joined by one of our culinary experts who will reveal all the secrets of Polish cuisine to you. We’re not city tour guides who decided to talk about food, we’re real enthusiasts and are really passionate about culinary culture. We’re Polish and live in Poland. 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 experince when it comes to food culture stories and we have it! Among us there are journalists, food bloggers, translators and interpreters, restaurant managers and academics. You can get to know us a little better beforehand by clicking the ‘Team’ section on the website menu.
