120 Ryba po grecku or Cod with Carrot, Parsnip and Celeriac

Pieces of white fish served with cooked carrots, parsnips and celeriac. In Poland called 'ryba po grecku' (Greek-style fish), this dish is much beloved Polish specialty.

Fat Thursday, when everyone in Poland feasts on doughnuts

117 Ewa’s Legendary Kapuśniak (sauerkraut soup) and a story of the famous Kamienica.

Most of us have a place we especially remember and cherish the memory of. Kamienica on Dietla Street in Krakow is (for me) the place where magic happens.

Andrzejki and a Polish custom of predicting the (matrimonial) future.

My favourite Christmas savoury bake. My mum makes the best ones though!
