Krakow Market Square @ Poland

Krakow's main market square is a feast for the senses - for the foodies, scores of stalls serve up all manner of Polish specialities, from huge links of carnivore-baiting sausages & steaming-hot pork knuckles, plus insanely moreish black pudding ...

... to the ubiquitous national staple of pierogi dumplings, stuffed with the likes of cottage cheese, potatoes & onions; cabbage & mushrooms; feta cheese & spinach; lentils & dried tomatoes; or sweet cheese with raisins ...

... to grilled oscypek (smoked cheese made of salted sheep milk from the Tatra Mountains) ...

... to coffee, hot chocolate, & pears & bananas dipped in chocolate & sprinkles.

  2. Whoa, sounds like you had an awesome time in Krakow! 'Pierogi' brings to mind the rap battle that ERB had between Rasputin and Stalin. I didn't know that it's actually a type of dumpling...

    Too bad it'll be ages before I can even fly out to Poland.
