Editors's Letter

L mag ‘fall


Welcome to the very first issue of Luscious – food magazine with a taste for simplicity. It's been four years since I first started sharing my passion for cooking and food photography through my food blog (princessmisia.com). As much as I enjoy blogging, I have always loved magazines and had a particular interest in the editorial world. The idea of this magazine was born a few months ago when I met Ewelina, a young talented graphic designer, with whom I connected not only through the passion for the editorial but also the appreciation of simplicity. It is that simplicity that makes Luscious unique – simple, seasonal recipes wrapped up in a pure, minimalist design.

The seasonal aspect of the magazine comes from my joy of eating and cooking seasonally. Seasonal products are fresher, tastier and more nutritious. They inspire me and get my creative juices flowing. In this issue of Luscious, you will find recipes with all the best fall has to offer: mushrooms, carrots, pumpkins, apples, pears, beets and cauliflowers. I hope they will encourage you to embrace the season in your kitchen and enjoy the benefits of the seasonal cooking! Have a very tasty fall and see you in December!

Fall In The Tatra Mountains

L mag ‘fall


In early fall, when the weather is still pleasant but most tourists have left, I love spending time in the Polish Tatra Mountains region. I can never get enough of its beautiful views, flourishing nature and most amazing colors in the sky. Zakopane, a picturesque town at the foot of the Tatra mountains, is the ‘capital’ of the Gorale (literally the highlanders), the group of people indigenous to this mountain area. The Gorale culture makes Zakopane an exceptional place full of folklore music, characteristic architecture, and yes, amazing food.

The market The central point of the town is the market. Situated in the heart of Zakopane, the market buzzes with stall-holders selling food, clothes, souvenirs and local artists displaying paintings, tapestries, and wooden craft products. I visit the market almost every day to get fresh food and the stock of my favorite cheese, oscypek.

The culinary jewel Oscypek, smoked cheese made of salted sheep's milk, is exclusively made in the Tatra Mountains. I like to think of it as a culinary jewel of this region. Even though its texture is a little on the rubbery side, it is one of the most delicious cheeses around. Served cold or grilled with cranberry jam, it can be found on the market, street stands around Zakopane and pretty much every hiking trail in the area.

Delicious hike If you fancy an easy, enjoyable and delicious hike, then the Koscieliska valley is the place to be. Nearly nine-kilometer long, it is one of the most picturesque valleys of the Tatra Mountains with its caves, stream and a lake. My favorite part of the hike is the beginning and the end. At the beginning, you can find freshly smoked Oscypek cheese, one of the best I’ve ever had.

At the end, on Hala Ornak, you can treat yourself to tea and freshly baked apple pie (szarlotka) in the mountain shelter’s restaurant.
