1. Warsaw: What’s Cooking? Jewish Culinary Experience Ticket
Come see the "What’s Cooking?" exhibition devoted to Jewish culinary traditions and customs. Visit the POLIN Museum with this entrance ticket and take a culinary journey across time as you learn about Jewish foods, religion, and culture. Start by learning about a variety of traditions and meals Jews have followed and eaten throughout the ages. Discover how Jews, while migrating, brought various dishes and products with them, from the Middle Ages to the great waves of migration in the 19th and 20th centuries. Guide yourself through the exhibition as you hear the rules of kashrut, the methods of preparing meals that follow the religious foundation of Jewish cuisine. No matter what they put in their pot, the meals are cooked following similar guidelines. Find out why, in the present day, many Jews distance themselves from the tradition or, alternately, seek their roots anew. The exhibition demonstrates the uniqueness of Jewish cuisine and why it is so difficult to define. Uncover secrets of Jewish cuisine as you find out what potato pancakes have in common with latkes, Polish gołąbki with Jewish holishikes. How chulent is different from adafina, and why in New York City pickled gherkins and borsht are considered Jewish food. Marvel at the four sculptures by artist Anna Królikiewicz, which serve as a metaphorical commentary on the narrative devoted to Jewish cuisine.
