Now that we’re back to Open Arts I felt this meal was worth sharing. Kamil and I have a fantasy of creating a restaurant called smacznego, which in English translates to enjoy your meal. Bon appétit. Yesterday we served the tasting menu to some friends safely outside on a sunny Sunday. In recent iterations, I’ve even added on the polski sklep, which means Polish store, where you can buy ingredients to make bigos, which we served yesterday. Bigos is a dish that uses fermented cabbage, dried fruit, dried mushrooms, pork, kiełbasa, allspice, tomato paste, other magic. You’ll have to stop by the polski sklep to get the recipe. We made three kinds of pierogi, the fillings include: 1) ruski – potato, onion and white cheese, 2) kapustą i z grzybami – fermented cabbage and mushroom, 3) mięsem – meat. We had kiełbasa, sausage, accompanied with ćwikła, grated beets and horseradish, as well as ajvar, a spicy red pepper spread. We also served barszcz, which is a beet soup, strained such that you can drink it from a mug. Keeps you warm. We had some Russian cookies for dessert – we did not make them. It was a delicious Sunday! Homemade wine, too. Cheers to Open Arts!
