About the author

Originally from London, I moved to Poland to absorb as much of the culture as humanly posssible. Maybe the biggest influence on me has been the food and I credit my adopted babcia, (Polish for grandmother) Ania, with much of the information here. I lived in Zielona Gora and Szklarska Poreba which are in the west and south-west of Poland respectively.

This is a very old food which took me a while to warm to. It is very popular in coastal regions but you can find it throughout Poland and it basically consists of waffles on which a variety of toppings are applied.

Whipped cream is popular with sauces, jams, fruits, nuts and anything you can think of but I often seem to lose some toppings or make a mess but I think that is just because I am a messy eater in general.

These home made gofry were made by friends of ours, Jan and Ania, at their place in Zielona Gora. As you can see toppings included pineapple, peach, cream and strawberry sauce and the yummy gofry was made into various shapes for that personal touch.
