    The cuisine from Łódź Voivodeship

    Culinary discoveries are an essential part of all trips. When we travel abroad, we like to pick up local products and delicacies, but we should do the same when traveling in the country. It’s worth checking and tasting the Łódź Voivodeship cuisine.

    Every region in Poland has something to boast about. This variety goes back to the old days, when people cooked in a completely different way, without so many recipes and information. This resulted in different dishes in different parts of Poland, even if they were made from the same ingredients.


    Łódź Voivodeship has a rich culinary tradition due to its cultural diversity. Poles, Russians, Jews, and Germans lived and cooked in this area since the 19th century. This has led to the fact that the Łódź cuisine is called the “Kitchen of the 4 Cultures” and you can find some really interesting dishes in it.


    The cuisine of Łódź was therefore influenced by many foreign customs, which greatly enriched it. Today we have the opportunity to taste this cuisine in many restaurants that serve local dishes.
