In this episode of Flavor of Poland viewers are taken to one of the most charming parts of Poland – the Lower Silesian voivodship and home to the enchanting city of Wrocław, also the capital of the region.
Viewers will be taken on a romantic stroll through the historic streets of Wrocław, visiting its stunning Market Square, considered one of the most colorful and beautiful market squares in Europe. Together with host, Aleksandra August, they’ll cross the city’s numerous bridges to explore its historic monuments and neighborhoods, including Ostrów Tumski, the oldest, surviving quarter of the city.
Following a tour through Wrocław, Aleksandra will take viewers further out into the region stopping by the Adoria Winery to sample some of the region’s best blends and learn about Poland’s rapidly growing wine culture. She’ll have a try of the region’s most popular modern foods – sampling a “few” items off the menu at the popular Polish burger eatery, Pasibus (born out of the city of Wrocław). Before her return home she also ventures off into the small village of Oława on the outskirts of Wrocław, where she pays a very special visit to the charming, Tawerna Kapitańska (Captain’s Tavern), set along the Odra River, where she’ll find out what draws people from both near and far to its doors. Owned and operated by esteemed culinary master, Chef Anna Strażyńska and her husband Tomasz Strażyński, the restaurant is known for its unique menu, based on locally grown foods made with heart by Chef Anna. During her visit Aleksandra experiences a unique dinner comprised of a couple of the restaurant’s highlight menu items, paired with a special surprise put together for her by her hosts at the Tavern. It’s a unique dining experience not to be missed!
Upon her return from enchanting Lower Silesia Aleksandra prepares a traditional Polish aspic and a Polish apple pie finished off with a unique topping.
