Warming Warsaw cuisine
For dessert, go for a famous Warsaw donut filled with rose or plum jam. Or try the wuzetka, a square-shaped pastry made of chocolate sponge cake filled with whipped cream and covered with chocolate icing. How it got its name remains uncertain, but one version maintains it came from Warsaw’s East-West thoroughfare running beneath Warsaw’s Old Town. Polish Wschód-Zachód (East-West) is abbreviated to W-Z and pronounced wu-zet (voo-zet), hence wuzetka.
