/ Warsaw: where to find DECENT chickens and marzipan!
I knew they'd move me!!!!!!! At least this is a forum that gets traffic but I am not asking about Polish food lmao. I think they just like moving me cos they know I will grumble. Just kidding.
I wouldn't waste good Luebeck marzipan for this purpose, I am going to make a Nigella Lawson cake which isn't conventional: you take a whole block of the usual sugary marzipan, cut it into cubes and freeze it. Then you chop dried pears, good quality fruits (I am going to use jumbo raisins and MAYBE dried cherries) and you macerate them in Bacardi for a few days - then make the cake mix, add your boozy fruits and the frozen marzipan cubes and bake it slooooooooowly (which is why the marzipan is frozen) and it is heavenly heavenly heavenly.
Thanks re the chicken, even in the Piotr i Paweł I went to there was the usual intensively reared fishmeal fed stuff (urgh).
My friend claimed you can get marzipan everywhere and I said he was getting confused with the chocolate covered stuff which is not what I want:) So thanks for proving me right.
Harry, does this mean the Hilton lunch on Xmas Day is expat hangout hell/heaven (depending on your perspective)? I am torn what to do for Xmas Day itself, I am going to see the family in the UK just before Xmas and coming back on Xmas Eve (want to be in Poland for Wiligia). Boxing Day is sorted (hence need for a cake!) - was thinking I'd zonk out and enjoy not having the Queen to laugh at for a change but what DO people do here on Xmas Day if they are still early into the process of integration (i.e. not married to someone Polish or dating someone Polish etc etc).
