Back by popular demand, two celebrity chefs, flown from Poland, will showcase a cooking demonstration at The Rizqun International Hotel Coffee House tomorrow.
This is the second time Rizqun Coffee House is hosting Poland cuisine with the theme ‘Polish Golden Autumn Food Festival’. The event is in collaboration with Laksamana College of Business and Embassy of Poland based in Kuala Lumpur.
Chef Marcin Budynek and Chef Mariusz Olechno will share their skills and experience in the field of Polish cuisine to promote their cuisine. According to spokesperson Jo Anna E Jurczyga, apart from featuring Polish dishes for the second time in the Sultanate, the food festival is also meant to celebrate the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Brunei Darussalam and Poland. The event is also to celebrate Poland’s Independence Day that falls on November 11. “So it’s a double celebration,” she added.
“Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world, we planned the Polish food festival as a regular event. However, after two years we managed to feature the Polish food festival in Malaysia. Brunei is the second country where we will hold the Polish food festival.
“The two celebrity chefs featured at this second edition are the same chefs from the first food festival held in 2019. They also look forward to conduct workshops at Laksamana College of Business, particular the Culinary School, as the chefs love to explore the young chefs’ talents.”
Jo Anna said the cuisine featured during the Polish Golden Autumn Food Festival include romaine lettuce, ice berg lettuce, beetroot soup, sour rye soup with sausage, roast duck with apples and herbs and chicken in casserole.
She said Polish food varied according to seasons and surroundings. “We want to showcase this diversity during the demonstration.”
Asked what motivated them to come back to the Sultanate, the chefs said during the first edition, the food was well received by the patrons and this was one of the reasons.
