Once again, Poland Culinary Vacations guests attended the annual PIEROGI FESTIVAL in Maly Rynek, Krakow, Poland as part of their August “Cooking Your Way From Krakow to Zakopane” culinary and cultural vacation. Locals and travelers from all over the world enjoyed Polish pierogi, beer and regional “oscypki” cheese while visiting the festival. It was hot, colorful and delicious!
Unlike any other year, this year we witnessed just about every possible color of pierogi dough – and interesting fillings! Pierogi Festival in Krakow is not your average pierogi affair and offers both traditional and new, inventive creations in line with ever demanding and changing Polish tastes!
In the evening, guests could visit Pierogi Festival and listen to live entertainment on main stage while enjoying their pierogi!
During August, 2015 XIII Pierogi Festival, restaurant “Polskie Smaki” located at ul. św. Tomasza in Krakow won the statue of Casimir the Great, beloved Polish King, for their best pierogi according to the general public (all those real pierogi fans who voted!) It was the second time restaurant “Polskie Smaki” won at the Pierogi Festival! Congratulations!
The statue of św. Jack with Pierogi (an award granted by professional jury comprised of people in the gastronomy business, dietitians, culinary journalists and restaurateurs) went to “Magi” from Trzciany, for Pierożki Babci Władzi. It was first time “Magi” won at the festival. Congratulations!
Total of 18 restaurants and catering businesses competed at the 2015 Pierogi Festival in Krakow. All participants received diplomas, general statues and practical gifts from local government and trade organizations sponsoring this spectacular culinary event in beautiful Krakow! Till next year!
