Get ready to join us in 2012 in beautiful Pomerania region of Poland, located on the Baltic Sea coast!

"The Black Pearl" - a beautiful galleon-styled ship cruising on Motlawa River in Gdansk. We take the ship from Gdansk to Westerplatte - the site of first battle of WWII and back while on "Coastal Cooking in Pomerania and Gdansk"culinary vacation.

We visited the region last month and found great people and places to share with you next year while on “Coastal Cooking in Pomerania and Gdansk” culinary vacation, our newest itinerary in Poland (click here to see more photos from Pomerania region). We’re planning a week of delicious regional cooking, Goldwasser Vodka tasting – made in Gdansk since the 16th century and containing real gold flakes, dining, sightseeing and shopping all in the company of locals very excited to share with us “Best of the Best” the area has to offer.

We’ll begin our Pomeranian adventure in Gdansk Oliwa, a lavish small city and home to Oliwa Cathedral, Abbot’s Palace, well maintained parks and residence of Lech Walesa, Solidarity movement leader and Nobel Peace Prize recipient. From there, we’ll head north, to Kashubian country where we’ll stay for the next three days in beautiful Palace in Slawutowko. Kashubians are a West Slavic ethnic group living in north-central Pomerania. We’ll be cooking regional recipes with Kashubian women and learning about their folklore during our stay in Pomeranian countryside. Besides cooking and tasting regional and Polish cuisine, we’ll spend time at pristine beaches, get spectacular views from historic lighthouses and spend an entire day exploring Hel Peninsula lined with picturesque small towns and centuries-old fishing villages.

Kashubian handicrafts are meaningful gifts - potential gifts to keep an eye out for include Kashubian floral table clothes, pottery, glassware and wood carvings.

On return from Kashubian countryside, we’ll make stops in Sopot and Gdynia and explore these charming seaside cities. Arriving back in Gdansk, we’ll check into luxurious four-star Hotel Gdansk located in old town. From here, we’ll take off to Malbork in the morning, on a half-day tour of the Teutonic Knights castle and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Upon return to Gdansk, we’ll tour the city’s most important historic sites, shop for amber and other souvenirs and dine at some of the best restaurants serving regional and Polish dishes prepared by top chefs. Our final day in Gdansk and Pomerania will include a Polish cooking class at the Pomerania Culinary Academy with chef Krzysztof Szulborski, additional sightseeing, cruising on the Black Pearl ship to Westerplatte, shopping and a farewell dinner at Pod Lososiem (Under the Salmon) restaurant serving Goldwasser. Pod Lososiem restaurant is one of the oldest and best restaurants in Gdansk and it’s here that Goldwasser Vodka was first distilled in 1598.
