Krakovians on the culinary heritage of the city [VIDEO]
Both residents of Krakow and other cities may enjoy even more materials prepared under the Slow Food-CE project.
The Slow Food-CE project in Krakow will focus on developing a new tourist product related to the local culinary heritage and supporting local food scene. The first step is to recognize what the culinary heritage of Krakow actually is. One can get to know its historical background from the study prepared in 2017 at the request of the City of Krakow. Next, interviews with over thirty people professionally connected with the food industry were conducted. These professionals talked about their personal history and work, and shared their knowledge.
- It is a very diverse group - Szymon Gatlik from the Municipality of Krakow explains.
