JAMIE OLIVER’S FIFTEEN TO SERVE UP POLISH FEAST WITH CHEF DAMIAN WAWRZYNIAK
Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen will take on the classic flavours of an authentic Polish feast on Sunday 05 June as guest chef, Damian Wawrzyniak brings his apron and his heritage to serve up a traditional biesiada for one day only.
Classic dishes inspired by Wawrzyniak’s own family roots will be given a modern twist in the Fifteen event space and served up family style with sharing plates, snacks and nibbles.
Packed with flavour and made from Fifteen’s own incredible produce and fresh seasonal ingredients, the feast promises to take diners on a whistle-stop tour of Poland’s food history. Dishes will include rustic bigos and żurek w chlebie soup as well as pierogi dumplings and babka, an authentic buttery fruit cake that’s winning over foodies in Chicago, New York, LA and London with a cool new image, fresh combos and even a donut hybrid.
A traditional Easter dish turned everyday treat, Damian charmed Queen of Cakes, Mary Berry with his updated interpretation. He’ll round out a special lunch with warm, decadent slabs, all washed down with a selection of exciting Polish spirits.
Chef Wawrzyniak said, “I’m really excited to serve a Polish feast at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen. We’ve taken our inspiration from a real Polish biesiada to create an unforgettable lunch experience. The menu is full of character, with traditional rustic dishes and delicious flavour combinations, all made from incredible British produce.”
