THE CHEF AT THE PALACE

Poland 2017, 7 min

Directed by Bartosz Dziamski

Produced by Bartosz Dziamski, Mlask

A film about Polish chef Maciej Nowicki. We wanted to tell the story of someone who digs deep into a culinary identity of Poland. That is why we sneaked into the kitchen of Villa Intrata in Warsaw’s Museum of King Jan III’s Palace at Wilanów.

Maciej is not the most famous Polish chef, he doesn’t even cook for the public. But his work is very important for our gastronomy — he researches through very first Polish cookbooks, does historical recipe reconstruction, recreates dishes that are long-forgotten. His work in the Museum helps other chefs and historians to understand what Poland tasted like and how will it taste in the future.
