LEEKS BAKED IN THE COCONUT MILK WITH PIZZICOTTI CHEESE AND THE GREEN PEPPER

At early spring we miss exotic tastes. We fantasize about holidays and long journeys. We don’t need much to move under the palm during  the meal time.

Peace in the Kitchen

Peace is the opposite of conflict, time of harmony and lack of concern. It can also be a space – free from prejudices, divisions, with openness to dialogue and cooperation. From January you will find such a place in Kuchnia Konfliktu, where the lower room will be turned into a cosy zone dedicated to workshops, meetings, screenings and discussions.

 

PAMPER YOURSELF!

We have a pleasure to invite you to the fourth edition of our event dedicated to the body. This time during the Festival of Body in Mysia 3, we will bring you health and wellbeing consultations, quick massage sessions and fitness area. Come and join us at Mysia 3 Shopping centre on December 1!

LEAVES AND BEANS

For the fourth time we have a pleasure to invite you to one of our favourite festivals at Mysia 3 Shopping Centre. Two queens – coffee and tea – will reign at the October edition of one our cyclical events – the Festival of Tea and Coffee.

AUTUMN CROPS 2

 

We have a pleasure to invite you to the second edition of Crops – The Festival of the Countryside. Last year’s event in Warsaw had a fantastic turnout and this is why we decided to organise the Festival again. There will be delicious products straight from the field, unique handicraft, natural cosmetics as well as discussions about modern farming methods. 

LISTEN, EAT, AND BREATHE

Open air, low-key concerts, stargazing, and little feasts all await you at the extraordinary Breaths Festival (Pl. Tchnienia). The Festival takes place in an ancient Orthodox church in Baligród in the Jabłonka River Valley, in late August, early September. USTA Magazine is media patron on the event!

Different Pressure Levels

In the current issue of the USTA Magazine you can read an interview with Andrzej Bargiel, the first man to ski down the Broad Peak in Karakorum. Few years ago he left everyone behind in the prestigious Elbus Race in extreme class. Last summer he established a new record in the fastest conquest of the five highest peaks of the former USSR. Andrzej tells us about the hardships, the turning points and the reasons why it is worth going alone in the mountains and live there day by day.

UL REVISITED

he bar and restaurant UL (Eng. Beehive) in Poznanska street has undergone a real metamorphosis and has now become UL Yafo. On that occasion, Polish artist Laura Pawela made a series of collages blending ancient photographies from Tel Aviv Jaffa and the contemporary aesthetics of computer error.

 

DELICATE LIKE A KISS

We present to you a series of artisanal soaps created together with Polish cosmetics brand Purite. You can choose from three interesting soap bars developed specially for the USTA. Magazine.

USTA VINTAGE

You have no idea how excited we were when we decided that the next USTA issue will be dedicated to vintage! Our editorial team haven’t been this euphoric about the theme of our magazine for a long time! With sparkles in our eyes, fantastic ideas for photo shootings and articles we started working on the new issue of the USTA Magazine about all things vintage.

EYE ON KRAKOW!

 

For the first time USTA Magazine invites you to the “Eye on…” event in Krakow. Another episode of our series of events organised together with PURO hotels will take place on September 22. Come and join us!

EVERYDAY LIFE WITH USTA

The summer issue of the USTA Magazine is dedicated to the everyday life. We will take a look at it from philosophical, architectural, cultural and, of course, culinary perspective. We bring you both a dose of reflection, like our material on zero waste, and homey, summer treats. 

SOMETIMES AT THE OFF FESTIVAL

This year OFF Festival will bring you not only fantastic concerts (M.I.A., Charlotte Gainsbourg or Ariel Pink), but also the Literary Café where you will be able to meet with writers, listen to radio plays and discuss literature. We interviewed Sylvia Chutnik – the curator of OFF’s literary corner. 

HIGH TIDE

Her plates and bowls from the “Wave” collection have been all over social media in the past weeks. These pastel blue, pink and light blue pieces evoke summer paradise or the endless sky during the sunsets – that is everything we miss so much in Poland during winter. These projects come from Mua Studio, made by Katia Romanowska.

USTA MAGAZINE 20th ISSUE!

We bring you the 20th issue of USTA Magazine which we devote to emotions. We came up with the idea for this theme to energise this winter, to warm it up, turn it on, to stir things up. We needed it badly when we were working on this issue in the gloomy Warsaw November. We have been looking for the power triggers, as well as questions and people that will inspire us to get up in the morning and wander through the foggy autumn days.

GLASS, DESIGN AND QUOTES

Collectors in Poland – we checked what they are gathering, and why and how much their collections gain in value. We described people with a broad spectrum of interests, ranging from Scandinavian design, GDR glass, and Polish photography to plastic beads and toys from Olympia flea market. In the new USTA Magazine we bring you interviews with specialists in collecting like Maurycy Gomulicki or Adam Leja.

BEAST

With a grain of his own unique contrariness, he readily emphasizes that in case of Category 5 hurricane, he would remain sitting in his living room, eating peanuts and contemplating nature’s frenzy. Meet Rodrigo Larios, architect, artist and master in living.

They drank hectolitres of coffee and ate tones of cake, but above all, they met wonderful people and learned their inspiring stories.
