Poland, with its cold Canadian-like climate has had centuries to perfect the art of delicious winter comfort food. The multi-talented Maria Rozynska taps into her Polish heritage to offer up a selection of traditional favourites, to be accompanied by a selection of live Polish music, song and spoken word.
Join us for an evening of authentic Polish food and culture, led by Maria and accompanied by traditional Polish folk musicians Ted Zdybal on accordion and Yura Rafaliu on the enchanting cimbalom, or hammer dulcimer.
Sledzie (Pickled Herring) – the traditional starter at a Polish holiday meal, served with fresh light rye bread
