taste of krakow

posted in: food, travel 0

food findings from a short but sweet visit to Krakow:

cake in a can!

ok, it wasn’t *really* cake in a can, but only the filling (to my disappointment–sort of like discovering poutine in a can is actually only the sauce).

lard on bread

this time it was definitely lard on bread. not too bad, but I should have added some salt. I later found a bottled version in a fancy grocery store:

"lard with ground bacon"

along with…

"strawberry jam with polish vodka"

but my memory of the visit is blurred by the food coma from our last night, induced by mountains of honey-braised ribs, crispy pork knuckle, marinated duck and perogies perogies perogies… (all served by buxom Polish waitresses, of course.)
