Holy Week 2005, Warsaw

Eastertime

Tuesday: roast the meats for pâté, gingerbread; Wednesday: pâté; Thursday: mazurkas1, gingerbread; Friday: aspic, meats, gray sauce2; Saturday: pascha3, salad, meats.

At 3.15 in the morning I got the first slice of pâté for relishing; ‘delicious’ doesn’t even begin to describe it.

  1. a short pastry with caramel or chocolate topping 

  2. a sweet sauce based on nuts, gingerbread and beer 

  3. a loose cheesecake with mandarin oranges, nuts and dried fruits
