A Taste of Europe 2017

At the beginning of this month, we stopped by the annual European Food Festival taking place in Wrocław’s city center. I believe this was our third time attending, and it seems that this street -like fair is gaining in popularity. We did by now notice some familiar faces among the folks representing their country. For…

Vacation Food

There are two things we consumed in heavy rotation during our stay at the sea side: fish & chips, and waffles! Ok, so there was an occasional smoked fish, too, but all in all, fish and waffles was the theme of our daily routine. An extremely delicious routine if I may say so myself. Fish & chips…

Sunday Brew & Tacos

So what do you do when you’re in a mood for fresh sea food without the hassle of a fourteen hour round trip? You…

Rogaliki – Grandma Style

A Taste of Europe

Wrocław hosted a “Taste of Europe” food festival last week. The proper translation would sound more to the tune of “Europe at the fork tip” or something along those lines. But my translation fits better as that’s exactly what it was: a bunch of vendors from different European countries showing off their local cuisine. We…
