Regional cuisine leaves a great deal of room for interpretation - for some, it is a true calling and a mission of sorts; for others, it is mainly a source of inspiration or even fun. It is with great curiosity that we discover both the places who meticulously cultivate culinary traditions, and those who loosely base their creations on it. Luckily for Poznań, there are enough ideas for the presentation of our culinary heritage for everyone to find something for themselves.
