Polish Family #f20
I spend about 100zł (€25) a week on food. I want the food that I buy to be fresh and without dirty kilometres, I don’t buy products that coming from the other side of the planet. I buy local products without E’s. Also I like to grow my own herbs in my flat. I go mainly on the local shops for my everyday shopping. For special things like Parmesan, olives etc I go to Carrefour. I cook at home, I got to bar mleczny – (milky bars), sometimes I eat at Kombinator - it depends. Here in Nowa Huta there is a grocery run by old ladies who sell readymade meals I buy from them sometimes too. I cook and I like to experiment a lot.
You eat by the eyes – so a good meal is the one that looks good. You need time for a good meal, a way to serve it and nice atmosphere. A dinner with plastic plates is not a good one if you put candles on the table you make a difference. In the summer I eat light food. Vegetables are cheaper in the summer and I use them a lot. I like strawberries but I don’t buy them in the winter. I remember when I was kid on holidays and I had to eat dishes that I didn’t like I was hiding them.
