Women ambassadors got together with the wives of ambassadors based in Poland to try their hand at cooking traditional Polish dishes during culinary workshops with celebrity chef Karol Okrasa.

The workshops, organized under the auspices of the Foreign Ministry, were held in September at the beautiful, historic Radziwiłł Palace in Nieborów, 80 kilometers west of Warsaw. Designed to promote Polish cuisine and culture, the workshops provided women hailing from a variety of cultural backgrounds with an opportunity to explore Polish cuisine, drinks and regional products.

The central theme of the September workshops was Polish poultry meat. The meeting was hosted by the Polish Meat Association and the organizers included the Polish Vodka Association. The poultry dishes that the participants learned to cook included such delicacies as goose breast with baked apples and fried pumpkin, and chicken legs stuffed with dried fruit and served with buckwheat pancakes. At the end of the workshops, the women were handed the recipes so they could later prepare the dishes in their own homes.

After the workshops, Okrasa said that as they cooked Polish dishes together, the women from different countries were able to learn about Polish food products and about the country’s history and traditions, handed down from generation to generation. “This is a perfect opportunity for the ladies to become ambassadors of Polish cuisine,” said Okrasa. “I believe that after the workshops, Polish poultry will hold a special place among their favorite dishes.”
