In our new What’s Cookin’? article series we ask chefs from some of our favourite restaurants and cafes in Poland to share a recipe with readers that is perfect for making at home. As it's Autumn, it's time for a seasonal classic. Have fun!
Regarding his recipe, Paweł said: "I chose this recipe because it is simple, but exquisite at the same time, made from simple ingredients and rich in aroma and flavour. It actually consists of two ingredients and it makes a big impression on guests at the table because of its completely unusual appearance, texture and taste."
With the imminent November 2020 opening of the Nova Wola Restaurant in Crowne Plaza Warsaw - The HUB, Paweł explains the modus operandi which will dominate in the kitchen: "Simplicity and authenticity always inspire me and this will be the main focus in our Nova Wola restaurant. I love simple connections and high-quality regional products which are hand crafted. And there are a lot of them, ranging from local cold cuts and cheeses to artisanal youghurts. I like when a dish speaks for itself and when the guest does not have to think too much about what he has just got on the plate."
