There are a few dozen unique products of this kind in Małopolska. In order to taste them, it is worth taking the Małopolska Gourmet Trail and visiting one of a few dozen inns – restaurants whose appearance and menu refers to old Polish traditions. Here you will come across excellent sausages (Lisiecka or dried Krakowska), Prądnicki bread, carp from Zator, apples from Łącko, excellent honeys and even alcoholic beverages, such as Łącko plum brandy [Śliwowica Łącka] – one of the world’s strongest liquors. Małopolska is becoming famous for its wine, which also reflects its exceptional climate: grapes mature under the Małopolska sun and draw juices from Małopolska soil, guaranteeing their strong and distinctive taste. The revival of wine-making traditions maintained by local monasteries a few centuries ago and the growing number of vineyards along the Małopolska Wine Trail is something to be proud of – especially since many of these vineyards raise organic crops.
The tastes of Małopolska are unforgettable. And the culinary culture of Małopolska is great, indeed. The first culinary feast of European rulers took place in Krakow in 1364, and the first Polish cookbooks were published in Małopolska in the 16th and 17th centuries. These great traditions have turned into excellent and exquisite gastronomy. We invite you to taste the culinary heritage of Małopolska.
