Episode 5. "Around the Baltic, by the shore - Kolobrzeg"

At the sea is like in life: one time it's sunny, other time it rains. And that's what it's all about, to make things interesting and varied. A local product that has many uses? Yes, you will find it here! The old gastronomic gospel says that you can recognize a cook by his soups... let us see. As a cook, I focus on the ingredients and their origins, but this time I saw "something" larger. On a larger scale, so to speak. So welcome! Welcome to the fifth episode of my adventure on the Baltic Sea. Ahoy!
