Have you ever wondered how the unfamiliar products that recently turned up on the shelves of your local green grocers tasted? Pani Solińska Restaurant gives you the opportunity to find out.

On the 8th March which happens to be  the 100th International Women’s Day, a holiday once obligatorily celebrated behind the Iron Curtain, pop in to Pani Solińska Restaurant not only to sample some of the exquisite Polish dishes but also to listen to a talk about the origins and history of the Polish cuisine. The mains will include Polish national dishes: barszcz (beetroot soup), pierogi ruskie z kapustą i grzybami (pierogi with potato, cabbage or mushrooms) or Bigos (Hunter’s Stew).

Once you satisfied your taste buds, you will be able to tag on to a historical culinary journey through Poland as presented by Jola Dębicka-McLennan.

The event is organised by the Polish Cultural Festival Association as part of Polish Kaleidoscope, series of events presenting different aspect of Polish modern culture to Scots. PCFA is a voluntary organisation that aims at bridging the gaps between the Scots and Polish community in Scotland by organising the events that are allowing the attendees to understand Poland and its people.
