People write that Amaro is not himself, that he ruined his image, that the contestants are mediocre, can’t do anything and even it

WORST

A restaurant. Sometimes we get there accidentally, for a regular lunch, between two meetings, with friends from work, quick, cheap, near. Sometimes for chit-chat with your best friend or for a tasty dinner with some friends you haven’t seen for a while. With a kid during weekend. With a whole family aged 2-86 for a

Far Ochota, also called Rakowiec or Okęcie, formally known as Włochy district which never stopped surprising me… I have been living in this neighbourhood for the last 12 years…. That never stopped surprising me either! When I was a teenager, I “suffered” when I had to leave my beloved neighbourhood in Bielany by Kępa Potocka,

Easter is coming… Faster than I thought. Lately I realised that the time from Christmas has passed surprisingly quick. Suddenly snow has faded away along with long winter evenings, sun came back (even though it’s still definitely too cold for me), the sky is blue again, and the Easter bunnies, eggs, pussy willows, Easter cakes

There we go! Wednesday! Some call it “a little Saturday! In times before Maks I often used to take advantage of this little Saturday, go out for a dinner, beer, party… or wine. Right now it’s hard to do it – working grandmas won’t take care of Maks in the middle of the week nor

Georgia. One of our favourite discoveries from last year! A place that amazes with beautiful, often unspoiled landscapes, friendly people, the atmosphere, wine from Kakheti and delicious food with cheese, aubergines, tomatoes, pomegranate and walnuts being its main players. We spent a week in Georgia during last year’s long May weekend – we visited picturesque

British cuisine… people rarely have positive opinions about it. We however love fish’n’chips bought in a little booth, wrapped in a piece of paper or served in a little cardboard box. Roughly chopped French fries sprinkled with vinegar, crispy batter and (for Łukasz) some tatar sauce. It’s a must during a trip to London or
