One of the most important culinary events of this year – dinner with a view, an open-air dinner with a view on the mountains — was held in the Dr Irena Eris SPA Hotel Krynica Zdrój.
The initiator of the culinary cycle ”Dinner with a view” is Ewa Malika Szyc-Juchnowicz, owner and chef of the Malika restaurant in Gdynia. For all editions, which have already been organized at the river bank and beside the sea, she invited unique feminine personality of the professional culinary world. Fia Gulliksson—chef in the Jazzkoket restaurant in Sweden and renowned activist for Food in Action Under—cooked under the cloudless sky in Krynica. The host of this venue was Janusz Myjak, chef of the Szósty Zmysł restaurant in the Hotel in Krynica. Every guest gave a spectacular culinary concert, by cooking in the open air and using regional products which were selected two days before the dinner, after exploring local producers.
By combining fire, earth and air in a masterful manner, the chefs created a dinner for hotel guests comprising superb, simple in nature, but exquisite dishes. The menu included: bread with ashes and three kinds of butter—from žinčica, roasted and with caramel, baked on a stone gołka cheese served with matza and sour cloudberry, moskole (potato pancakes) with bryndza (sheep milk) cheese, trout in three versions: roasted, marinated and raw, as in sushi, deer with beet and elderberry, beef heart tartare with lovage salt served with baked tuk and caviar, lamb broth with mushroom surprise or Argentinian style lamb roasted on fire. One of desserts closing the feast was Jerusalem artichoke ice-cream.
The delight over the dishes was endless, and we hope we will have another opportunity to invite you to enjoy such culinary experiences.
We would like to thank BMW for their cooperation in the project.
