If you dont know what to cook today try delicious Ukrainian stuffed peppers.

Here is the recipe.

When you want to eat something different, to treat yourself or just to share food with friends you can always think about the magic word "pizza". Living for seven months in Torun gave me the opportunity to taste lots of foods including pizzas, kebabs, spaghetti, calzones, pancakes, burgers, soups, desserts and ice cream. That's why I decided to write about pizza and one related event!

If you have read my first article related to vegetarianism, you have realized that life in the meat-loving Poland for a vegetarian isn`t so hard as it might seem at first glance. You will definitly survive and you might even enjoy more than expected, but of course you will for sure encounter some not so pleasent situations. From my experience they are mostly caused by the existing language barrier. Polish is not so easy to learn for foreigners and Poles often don`t speak English very well, so here I will present a small improvised vege dictionary I made for myself hoping it might help some of you, too.

The core of Polish cuisine is meat, that`s a well known fact. There is a variety of meat specialties among which is possible to choose if you want to try the taste of traditional cuisine. But, what if the situation is opposite, and you actually want to avoid them? What if you are making this „mistake“ of not eating meat even while staying in this „carnivorous“ country? Well, you will survive and I would like to give you some useful tips I have learned during my stay in Poland, specifically in Toruń.

First of all, I want to tell more about love, family, holidays and the feeling you have when you're surrounded by friends but actually, you are alone or maybe, this is just a simple bogus feeling. But let’s continue … How is for you a happy holiday?

Having a vegetarian over and are clueless what to serve him/her? Wishing to help someone to like eating vegetables? Or maybe just having a desire to impress yourself with simple cooking... 5 stars restaurants serve this too, and you will know how to master it. I present you “Leek pearls on beetroot sauce bed” This is poetry in a plate.

This is a recipe for homemade biscuits which can last without any problems for a mont, but probably won`t because they are quite tasty.

Lift up your sleeves, put on your “Kiss the cook”-apron and let’s get cookin’! I don’t know about you, but I’m in the mood for something Romanian tonight. How about some tocăniță and polenta? This is one of the easiest foods to make and it always gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling on the inside because it reminds me of childhood.

You think you are a terrible cook. You assume you will burn down the entire building just by approaching any stove. Sure, you can skip the hard work and go out to have dinner than to cook it; but why missing all the fun? Grab your best pals and start working that frying pan until you have an entire notebook full with recipes from all around the world! Here is your first: from the land of… Romania. *Special Erasmus edition*

If someone asks you to describe what you have experienced during the first month in Toruń as an Erasmus student, from where would you start?

For sure, you are asking „Is this a joke?“ but even though it's the first of April, it's not a joke.
