We try to take the best from our regional culinary tradition. This time we prepared our interpretation of a hearty goulash with slightly vinous and sour-hot flavour with cucumber pickles and tomato concentrate, usually served with bread. The main ingredient of Forszmak (or Vorschmack) is usually pork. Our version of Vorschmack is made of caramelised … Continue reading "Lublin Vorschmack"
Every week we are meeting with Ania and Rafał, the owners of Mleczna Droga (Milky Way). Each of us has his favourite among their products. Kamil’s number one is a mature cheddar cheese, but actually, he likes it most at the early stage of maturing.

In the winter, we like to warm ourselves with savoury soups, and that is why we have decided to prepare our interpretation of żur żukowski (sour rye soup) hailing from Krzczonów. In 2015, the soup entered the Traditional Products List. The history of … Continue reading "Żur żukowski"

When we want to add a sweet twist to our dishes we use honey from our pantry. We can choose from acacia, polyfloral, linden and dandelion honeys. They are all produced under the watchful eye of Leszek Wójcik, the beekeeper who takes care of the Water&Wine beehives. His beekeeping adventure started several years ago when … Continue reading "The beekeeper"
