Regional flavors still have their allure
Everyone who is interested in Poznań and its culinary traditions has heard about the croissants with white poppy seeds baked for Saint Martin’s day. However, there was once another custom associated with the figure of St. Martin – on his name day people would throw huge festivities and enjoy new wines from Poznań’s vineyards. Winemaking traditions in Poznań date back to the middle ages. Today, the croissants are baked by probably all confectioneries in the region, but what about wine? It’s still there! You can read about the flavor qualities of the currently produced wine originating in Poznań in the article on the Sama Valley vineyard. Apart from that, on the pages of my city you will also find articles on the growing popularity of lacrosse, the sporting offer for autumn and winter afternoons and the benefits of aromatherapy.
