Discover the food, drink and hospitality of the people of Pomerania, a Baltic Sea coast region in Poland known mostly for its natural beauty, amber, stunning architecture in cities like Gdansk, Lech Walesa and Solidarity movement of the 1980s. But a trip to Pomerania is also an adventure for the palate!
Both Pomerania’s cities and countryside make this northern part of Poland worth exploring from the culinary side as it boasts the largest number of unique and delicious products on the national Regional and Traditional Products registry list with the Ministry of Agriculture of Poland – 182 in total, countless culinary themed festivals, cooking schools to help you hone your culinary skills and teach you a few new ones and world class restaurants specializing in regional, Polish and international cuisine.
You can start your food voyage thru Pomerania by simply visiting best restaurants – some you can find on our week-long itinerary to the region: “Coastal Cooking in Pomerania and Gdansk” plus we’ll make additional recommendations in our next blog post, tasting the unique products and dishes made by Pomerania’s artisans found on the national registry list, attend regional culinary festivals or enroll in a cooking class with a local professional chef.
