Polish cuisine will offer you the best tastes in the nearest season: from the warming up soups (including the mushroom one, pumpkin cream or Żurek) to the superb Christmas specialties full of spices and Polish ingredients. Also when it comes to the desserts don’t forget about the gingerbreads and the special croissants filled with white poppy seed and dried fruit filling. They come from Poznan (west of Poland) and are served all year long, but the peak is on St. Marcin’s day (11th November) – this is already a Polish custom to taste at least one each year.
