Time Out says

Load up on Polish treats and sweet and savoury dumplings

As we sweat our way through another toasty summertime Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere, there is some comfort in indulging in traditions from the wintry, snow-laden festive season up north – especially when that involves doughnuts and dumplings. 

In Polish tradition, Wigilia is an important 12-dish feast held on Christmas Eve, starting at dusk when the first star is sighted and lasting all night. In the spirit of the feast, a one-day-only Polish Christmas food market is coming to Sydney, dishing up Eastern European treats. Get amongst pączki (traditional stuffed doughnuts), sernik (Polish cheesecake), piernik (gingerbread cake), makowiec (a pastry-wrapped poppy seed roll), pierogi (sweet and savoury pan-fried dumplings) and other treats. 

The market comes to the legendary Polish Club Ashfield on Sunday, December 20 from noon and is hosted by PolArt, a non-for-profit organisation that proudly showcases Polish culture. 

Follow the Facebook event for updates. If there’s some particular sweets you have your heart set on, pre-orders are strongly recommended, you can get in touch at info@polartsydney.com.au.
