The Polish Presidency presents an unparalleled opportunity to promote Polish cuisine. One of the country's leading chefs, Adam Chrzastowski, is overseeing the creation of a select menu of Polish dishes based on ingredients native to the country which will be served at high level meetings in Poland and Brussels. Foreign delegations and journalists visiting Poland during the Presidency will also be presented with a collection of recipes for Polish dishes
specially prepared by 16 chefs, including three professionals from outside Poland, who on a daily basis work in some of Poland's leading restaurants. The point of departure for each recipe is an ingredient commonly associated with Polish cuisine (e.g. herring, cucumbers, buckwheat groats, poppy seedsand venison). Each recipe is preceded by a description of the ingredient - including its cultural context, which is aimed at being comprehensible for foreigners unacquainted
