And here it comes again! Fat Thursday. It falls on the last Thursday before Lent and heralds the end of carnival. One of the most awaited feasts of the year for Poles. I would risk saying there is no public place in Poland today without a pączek (doughnut in Polish) traditionally filled with rose-petals jam. Poles like it sweet and greasy, indeed. For a foreigner it might be difficult to understand and accept, but the character of Polish cuisine has certainly been shaped and determined by geographical location and climatic conditions. How else would you be able to survive harsh winters? If you prefer something more dietetic to Polish pączki and faworki (angel wings in Polish), at least enjoy the photos.
