Over the past few years, I’ve grown a bit bored with Poland during Food & Wine. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve liked the offerings such as the Golabki and Kielbasa and Potato Pierogies with Caramelized Onions and Sour Cream; they are dishes that I grew up with, and simply prefer the recipes my mom made at home.
I was excited when the menus were released and saw the new offering at the Poland kiosk this year: Zapiekanki. When I ordered the dish, the cast member informed me it was like a Polish pizza. I had already done a bit of research prior to the festival and was definitely looking forward to sampling the dish.
The portion , especially for the price, was fantastic. I’m curious to see if these get smaller as the festival goes on.
The House-Made Ketchup had a nice acidity to it. There were a lot of mushrooms tucked underneath the deliciously salty cheese, and the bread had a buttery crispness to it that I really enjoyed. Matt tried a mushroom-less bite and thought it was pretty good as well. This definitely isn’t something for someone who dislikes mushrooms should order, unless they’re willing to take the time to pick them all out from under the cheese.
I’m happy to have found another new item at Food & Wine that has been impressive. I’ll likely be ordering this one again, not only to enjoy, but also to see if the portion size shrinks over the course of the festival. If you’ve tried the Zapiekanki, let us know what you think!
