Masurian risotto by Bruno



No rice growing in Masuria but we have a lot of very good mushrooms in forests all the Poland love. They are called “kurki” in Polish, which means literally: little hens. English name for them is chanterell. Tasting very good when served e.g. with rice. Our Bruno’s idea for family dinner today. Masurian risotto with chanterelle. He returned form Masuria with a bag full of tasety stuff a day ago. So, now we eat Masurian and we love it much!

Masurian woodland strawberry



Masurian-like woodland strawberries spotted today in Warsaw as best ever woodland strawberry tart. Guess who made this discovery? Our Grazyna, of course! Woodland strawberries are the only thing in the world she seems to be addicted to. Childhood we know by ourselves was always full of forest fruits during the school holidays. What a happy time in such a sad reality we used to have in Poland of 1980s.

Masurian forest fruits



Spotted today by our Grazyna in London: “Maślanka Mrągowska” (Polish: Mrągowo Buttermilk). You know Mrągowo is one of the most charming towns in Masuria. This buttermilk is very special, because of our favourite forest fruits. You can find plenty of blueberries, blackberries and red berries in Masurian forest. Our kids love them in summer. So do all of us 😋

You'll never walk alone...



Last weekend our Roman went to Liverpool, because of something important. On Sunday he visited "The Kop" stadium to bring a few gadgets for Warmian-Masurian kids to motivate them to learn and develop, as usually he does when he visits football venues. Probably the best gift for them will be an official scarf of the 2018 Champions League FINAL: Real vs. Liverpool. Roman said he has never been to any football club stadium with such a community feeling. Liverpool fans can really feel unique over there. You know they never walk alone and their stadium is their home, in fact. Great time in famous Anfield Road for Roman. One day all we go to Liverpool to watch their match as family, Roman says. We know very well that sharing good things with good people we love is much better than experiencing alone... Isn't it nice, is it?

Country parade in Mrągowo



We’ve got a bunch of pictures from our Masurian friend - Mrs. Olszowska, from Mrągowo. What you see is mostly this year parade happening while “Piknik Country”. People say it’s been lasting shorter and shorter year by year. Anyway, it was still worth to be watched while staying in Mrągowo during last weekend. By the way, Mrągowo is very charming town in Masuria. Our Roman says it should be future ’strategic leader’ of the entire region of Masuria. As a matter of fact he goes to Mrągowo soon.
