If anyone's in or near Warsaw and wants to buy British food, there's a special event at Auchan in £omianki this Saturday. I get back home to PL that morning and since it's just up the road will definitely go and see what freebies they give out:
We will be launching the "British Aisles" campaign on Saturday 21st March at 2.00 p.m. at Auchan shopping centre in £omianki!
Deputy Head of Mission at the British Embassy, Sarah Tiffin will officially open the British stand with select products from 21 British food and drink producers, which the delicatessen chain 'Kuchnie Świata' is introducing to Poland.
Our special guest will be Kevin Aiston, a British celebrity in Poland and author of "Kevin sam w kuchni", a cookery book with British recipes. He will be preparing known British dishes like "ploughman's lunch, "roast lamb" i "traditional British pancakes", which you can't miss.
Intriguing about the "photo with The Queen" - there's no shortage of queens in Warsaw but I doubt HM herself is coming, but at least we can see Tiffin serving tiffin.. I can live without ever regretting not watching Kevin Aiston assembling a ploughman's lunch, although as celebrity Brits in Poland go he's probably the best choice. In any case, Nigel Kennedy's probably too expensive, Rula Lenska too Polish to be exotic in £omianki and Norman Davies too busy...
