Frankly, I'm not a regular in high-class, chic restaurants. Somehow, I always feel a bit awkward there. 'What wine should I order?' 'Am I holding my fork properly?' 'Oh my God, have I just spilt a bit of juice on the table cloth?!' 'Shhh, we shouldn't talk so loud!' Doesn't it stress you? I prefer 'dining places' - so places, where absolutely everything is about food. Don't understand me wrong, the place doesn't need to be an ugly, no-soul inn where the stuff is rude but the food is relatively ok. I would like to eat in a place where nothing drags your attention from the taste of your meal. The decor is nice, subdued, without unnecessary ritz, but with a pinch of charm. The host is friendly, smiling, passionate about the food he offers. I found a place like this in Poland - Kuchnia is definitely more about food than about everything else
You think I don't know that I'm late?? :-) But because of the Spoon being down for such a long time, I still haven't had the possibility to share with you the amazing time I had in Poland during Christmas. I went back to my home town - Toruń - the best place in the world to spend Christmas holidays.
I'm a huge fan of honey. Every time I come back from Poland I find myself carrying jars of this truly marvelous golden liquid that my mum buys from a local beekeeper. She believes that honey can cure almost everything and she's an absolute trove of honey recipes, remedies and home-made cosmetics. That's why I choose honey as the hero of my very fist article on The Rambling Epicure. Check the TRE website to read it http://www.theramblingepicure.com/archives/29009
