Polish Bigos


Bigos belongs to those legendary dishes Polish cuisine couldn’t do without. If you travel to Poland you may not come across it if you only stick to tourist routes and menus. But it’s definitely worthwhile to find and taste a well-prepared bigos. For years it’s been extremely popular with the Poles.

Oscypek is an absolute "must taste" when you visiting Polish mountains. Very tasty when served with red wine or smoked fish.
