Festive Tastes at Blue Cactus
November 26, 2008   
Article's tools:

The Blue Cactus restaurant has unveiled this year's last special menu featuring dishes evoking the taste and atmosphere of Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah. The three traditional festivals may differ significantly, but the dishes share the invigorating aroma of spices such as cinnamon and cloves added to marinades and sauces.

Christmas in Poland is commonly associated with the flavor and scent of dried mushrooms, which the Winter Menu delivers in the form of a tart with forest mushrooms stewed in sour cream (zl.26) and zander with forest mushrooms seasoned with fresh thyme and served with dumplings, green beans and almond flakes (zl.46).

For the new menu, Blue Cactus also has picked meats which call to mind the holidays, such as duck, the traditional meat on Christmas tables in Germany and France. You can order duck breast flambéed with Italian Marsala, served with red cabbage, Dijon mustard and butter dumplings (zl.46).

The trademark of American Thanksgiving Day, turkey, is served in the traditional style as slices of roast turkey breast with cranberry sauce, mashed sweet potatoes, green beans and toasted almonds (zl.44).

For dessert, try a traditional Latin American delicacy-dumplings with dried apricots, nuts and almonds spiced with cinnamon and cloves and sprinkled with vanilla sauce, or the typical American pumpkin pie with spices and cinnamon ice-cream (both zl.19).
