The city of Poznań Is To Become Part Of The MICHELIN Guide Poland Selection

With Poznan, Michelin Guide starts a new gourmet chapter in Poland

Poznan’s cuisine reflects its cosmopolitan outlook, with influences ranging from Italy to Japan and, while chefs show respect traditional recipes, they are not afraid to interpret these in a modern fashion.

The MICHELIN Guide is already present in Poland, with Warsaw, since 1997, and Cracow since 2008.

Already present in Poland since 1997, with a selection in Warsaw, then adding Cracow in 2008, last week the MICHELIN Guide has announced the extension of its Polish scope to the city of Poznań.

“With its Old Market Square – one of its gems – and streets full of charm, Poznań is a city our inspectors have enjoyed exploring, ”, commented Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides. “Across all three Polish cities, professional talent shines, with ambitious chefs keen to reinterpret the essence of Polish cuisine and highlight Poland’s gastronomy on the international culinary scene”, continued Poullennec.

The MICHELIN Guide’s famously anonymous inspectors will continue their work in both Warsaw – which continues to offer a wide array of cosmopolitan eateries from wine bars and bistros to sophisticated restaurants – and Crakow, with its bohemian charm and historical legacy, where traditional dishes sit comfortably alongside more creative and innovative cuisine.

In Poland, the MICHELIN Guide is starting a partnership with the Polish Tourism Organization, to fund communication, digital and marketing campaigns to promote the selections of Warsaw, Cracow and Poznań to the world.

The Polish chefs and their teams worth being known and highlighted for their talent and creativity. Nevertheless, as always since its creation in 1900, the MICHELIN Guide’s restaurant selection will be created in an independent manner by its expert inspectors, following the universal and historical methodology of The MICHELIN Guide. Their assessments are based on five criteria: the quality of the produce; the mastery of the cooking techniques; the harmony of flavors; the personality of the chef as expressed on the plate; and consistency, both across the menu as a whole and over time.

The full Michelin Polish selection – from recommended restaurants to great value Bib Gourmand and Michelin Starred establishments – will be unveiled by the MICHELIN Guide in the upcoming months. It will be available on the MICHELIN Guide’s website and free mobile app (iOS and Android).
