Polish Table: Mine, Yours, Ours (Day One)

  • Museum of Food and Drink 62 Bayard Street Brooklyn, NY, 11222 United States (map)

What are the traditions, products, and culinary customs of authentic Polish cuisine? What part of this heritage is preserved in the collective consciousness in the United States? Monika Kucia invites you to explore an immersive labyrinth of designed experiences, a tasting workshop, a feast, and stories around the Polish Table.

A recipe is not just a set of instructions. It is also a secret conveyed in trust, a memory of taste, a hint given as an act of kindness. Polish Table seeks to explore how recipes, products, and family stories travel through a maze of flavors, smells, and sensations, activating all your senses.

Through this modern ritual, audience members will plunge into the world of nature and culture, bask in smells, tastes, and emotions, and be inspired to create and share their own stories. Part exhibition, part performance, and part dinner, Polish Table aims to educate, surprise, entertain, and bring people closer together through a celebration and exploration of Polish culinary traditions.
