They all  competed to win “The Golden Colander” award and the title of  The Expert of the Silesian Tastes. The top winners were students of Vocational School in Żorki, who prepared cheesecake with cranberry dip. After the dessert they also served Silesian onion soup and stuffed duck with apples and cranberry.
