From fire or water?
Until October 4, the culinary festival From fire and water will last, participated by over 30 Krakow restaurants. In this edition, their task was to prepare a 3-course menu inspired by Asian flavors. In each of the restaurants you will find two variants of the festival menu: "From Fire", in which the main course is high-quality meat, and "From water", which is a menu based on fish and seafood.
