Prepare to Drool, by j

Standard
 

Ok, so now for the good stuff.

One of the important reasons why I was so stoked to visit Poland was that I knew (I knew) that the food was going to be a) cheap b) effing delicious.

I was not disappointed.

So here is the food I ate while travelling in Poland.   Yum.

Oh, and I never want to see another pierogi again.

Pierogies stuffed with mushrooms and saurkraut

 

Vodka and Tonic

 

Weiner Schnitzel (ok, this was in Germany)

 

"Meat" Pierogies, baked.

 

Apple and Cinnamon Pierogies at a Pierogarnia that is subsidized by MONKS! (cost $4!)

 

A Polish Doughnut, a paczek, filled with rose petal jam.

 

Breakfast in Krakow, sausage, cheese and pickles!

 

Dense, fresh Polish bread, cherry preserves and some emmental cheese

 

Sernik - Polish cheesecake covered in bittersweet chocolate

 

Goulash with Potato Pancakes

 

Cabbage Rolls!

 

Bijos - Sausage cooked in saurkraut, cabbage, onions and mushrooms! My favourite.

 

Authentic Potato Latkes at "Ariel"

 

Another Vodka and Tonic!

 

Matzo Ball Soup at "Ariel"

 

Turkey grilled with almonds and raisin with potato latkes

 

Smalec - Lard fried, cooled, sprinkled with sea salt and eaten with rye bread (yummy!)

 

Smalec and a pink beer! Beer mixed with raspberry juice, quite nice!

 

And yes...I had creme brulee in Poland (at an Italian restaurant...Italian food in Poland is KING!). The creme brulee was one of the thickest and creamiest custard I've ever had. However the sugar top was crap (very thin) and they sprinkled icing sugar on it...bizarro. 3/5

About weywardsisters

The Three Weyward Sisters first appeared in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”. It turns out we have more in common with these “weird” sisters than we thought. In the Shakespeare play the sisters represent darkness, chaos and conflict. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which of us represents each. They also usually show up to mark impending doom. Well, we certainly hope that our presence on this little corner of the Interwebs doesn’t mean impending doom for anyone. However, we find our commonalities with the witches in other ways. To be weyward means to be willful, disobedient and to turn away from what is “right or proper”. Those who know us would whole heartedly agree – we are three weyward sisters. We are three headstrong, stubborn (some more than others), obstinate and willful sisters. Read at your own risk.

  1. Take a look at picture #1: the pierogi on the bottom right of the plate looks like some evil demon’s head. No wonder you don’t want to see another pierogi!

  2. Thanks for sharing. My family along with my sister and her family visited Europe this past summer. We visited Krakow also and enjoyed many of the same beyond delicious food you pictured. Great memories and your pictures certainly brought some to surface. Yum!!!
