THE POL­ISH JAMIEOLIVER IS BRING­ING HIS FEAST TO PETER­BOR­OUGH GASTROPUB

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Foodanddrink -

A Peter­bor­ough chef is look­ing for­ward to work­ing along­side “the Pol­ish Jamie Oliver” when the celebrity chef takes over the kitchen at his gas­tro pub in April. TV chef and am­bas­sador for Pol­ish cui­sine Damian Wawrzy­niak is bring­ing his Pol­ish Feast – as served up in Jamie Oliver’s FIF­TEEN - to Maccaloo, which opened in Eye last May. The unique new food tour is set to bring fam­ily style dishes and de­li­cious Pol­ish treats to din­ers at the Crow­land Road venue on April 30. And head chef Adam Strzemilowski will not be tak­ing the night off. Adam , who is Pol­ish but says his menu at Maccaloo takes in all types of cuisines, was fea­tured in an ar­ti­cle in The Times and some­one as­so­ci­ated with Damian got in touch. “I did not know who he was in the be­gin­ning,” said Adam. “I don’t re­ally fol­low tele­vi­sion so I hadn’t heard of him. “But I Googled him and peo­ple call him the Pol­ish Jamie Oliver.” Look­ing for­ward to the event, Adam added: “I spoke to him and then he came to the pub and he seems like a re­ally good guy. “He re­ally liked the place and the kitchen and asked if I could help him. I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to it.” Brim­ming with flavour and fus- ing old tra­di­tions with mod­ern tastes, Pol­ish Feast din­ers can ex­pect rus­tic shar­ing plat­ters, to be en­joyed fam­ily style, with starters, en­trees, desserts and of course, vodka. The Pol­ish Feast is part of Damian Wawrzy­niak’s per­sonal mis­sion to make one of the last undis­cov­ered cuisines a firm art of Bri­tish food cul­ture. In­spired by his child­hood in Poland and in­flu­enced by stints in Ire­land, France, Den­mark and Ger­many, Pol­ish Feast lifts the lid on fresh, in-sea­son pro­duce and old fam­ily favourites. He said: “So few peo­ple have tried true, au­then­tic, home­made tra­di­tional Pol­ish food. “I’ve had the idea of a food tour for a while now, af­ter cook­ing the first Pol­ish Feast in the FIF­TEEN kitchen last sum­mer. “Pol­ish food is still largely undis­cov­ered in Great Bri­tain, so this is a chance to be part of some­thing very spe­cial.” Find out more and book tick­ets at www.eventbrite.co.uk. In the mean­time Adam is host­ing a Burns Night din­ner on Jan­uary 28 - com­plete with Scot­tish-themed menu and a piper. Call 01733 221279 or go to www. maccaloo.co.uk
