The beginnings of the current Małopolska cuisine dates back to the times of Galicia and the partitions, i.e., the end of the 18th century. In today's dishes, one can notice the influence of Hungarian, Jewish, as well as Austrian and Czech cuisine. So, it is very diverse, very "rich", and the last thing you can say about the portions is that they are small.

 

One of the most popular dishes in the region is “maczanka po krakowsku”, mandatorily served with caraway sauce. The caraway sauce is nowhere used as much as in Kraków and the Małopolska Region. 

 

Another highly valued dish in Małopolska Region is a duck in Cracovian style, which is served quite unusually, because with groats and mushrooms. 

 

Małopolska cuisine can hardly be called dietetic. There are thousands of calories in thick cream, baked potatoes, and heavy sauces. Nevertheless, if you get a chance to taste it, don't give up - these royal flavors are worth trying at least once.
