USTA Magazine team has recently gone to Berlin to check what’s new on the culinary map of the city. And indeed a lot has been going on. This year’s Michelin guide has brought new stars to the city gastronomy landscape. The culinary concepts concentrating on the local produce and reflecting the local identity are on the rise. No wonder that it is in Berlin that the one-day symposium Terroir Berlin Forum takes place. It starts in just few days on May 15.
On the occasion of the premiere of the opera “The Turk in Italy”, USTA Magazine team has been invited by the National Opera to take photos of the dishes inspired by the works of Rossini. The recipes were re-interpreted by Marzena Gromelska, the chef of the Chianti restaurant. And it is in Chianti, in the coming days, that you will be able to have chanterelles a la Rossini, mortadella foam or an apple tart Guglielmo Tell.
It’s been barely few days since its opening and yet this place already arouses strong emotions. Krem is a new bistro in Warsaw and it serves classics of the French cuisine which are both delicious and authentic as they are based on excellent ingredients. French cheese, home-made kumpiak ham, pâté and roast beef, fresh baguette… mon dieu! We talk about the concept of this place with the founder and chef in one person Luc Magnon.
Welcome to the fresh, winter issue of the USTA Magazine. The main theme of this issue is the breakthroughs. We take a closer look at the turning points in the history of gastronomy. We depict the chefs visionaries whose revolutionary thinking has changed the whole culinary domain. We selected 6 exceptional dishes from the 20th century – milestone meals created by outstanding chefs, which have been described, discussed and reinvented over the years.
Winter comes in December and winter means cold. This is why, on the occasion of our next Festival of Body, we want to encourage you to develop tenderness towards yourselves. Let’s take care of ourselves and our bodies, let’s stay warm, put some nice clothes on and indulge and pamper ourselves.
Here is a recipe for quite an unusual chocolate cake. But believe us, it does have a potential to win over every gourmand’s palate! Moist, like the ground in the garden after a several-hour rain, intense, thanks to particularly delicious in this season raspberries, which had enough sun to grow ripe, and exotic, with added coconut, to encourage those of you yet before their holidays and cheer-up those who have just returned from the summer voyages. Bon appétit but please do not exaggerate with the number of devoured cake pieces!
As a child, I remember that every other kids were looking forward for the field trip. We went to see the park, palace and the zoo etc. It was always exciting to leave the classroom but the highlight was always the lunch time. because we got a very, very special lunch box only at field trip’s day.
We have pleasure to invite to another of the series of festivals jointly organised by USTA Magazine and Mysia 3 shopping centre. This time the event is dedicated to the youngest. We will present a selection of unique brands of toys, clothes, cosmetics, books and furniture for children.
For the third time we are organising the most beautiful spring festival of the USTA Magazine – the long awaited Festival of Flowers! On April 1 (and no, it’s not an April Fool’s prank) Mysia 3 Shopping Centre will turn into a blooming garden full of incredible flowers and hidden treasures.
Since we have already experienced the first snow of the season, we decided to keep the cold atmosphere. Don’t worry, it’s just a white amaretto powder on a pumpkin muffin in the graceful shape of Fuji. A charming twist on the period between autumn and winter made by our irreplaceable Mickey Rotten. All completely vegan.
There are two kinds of people in the world. One is who eat breakfast in the morning and the other is who doesn’t eat breakfast. Breakfast to breakfast kind of people is more than a meal, they have to have breakfast to start their day.
Fish and culture – that’s the best summary of our new book. Apart from 40 fish recipes created by Jakub Mikołajczak, you will find there something to read about. The premiere of the book “O rybach” (Eng. “On Fish”) is due next week.
If you are travelling to Poznań, don’t forget to pop in Concept 21 – a place with selected brands and intriguing, niche perfume. USTA paid a visit to this concept store in Wielka street to take a closer look at their offer.
In the morning of the 15th of October we are going to wake up the sleepy Warsaw with the smell of brewed tea leaves and freshly roasted coffee beans. With the first autumn days the summer lemonades and ciders will be replaced by the two queens: the coffee and the tea. You will welcome your day with us with a Kenyan espresso or an aromatic drip. You will get to know the best baristas and the finest coffee roasters.
They were born out of love for the atmosphere of the 1930s and 1940s, films in an old cinema and vintage fashion. But they are also a result of the search for authentic food without additives, with simple list of ingredients. Please welcome Pomadki Luksusowe (Eng. Luxurious Fondants), they are truly addictive!

I believe in the rule that simpler is better, writes Marta Wajda, the author of our food boxes cycle. That is why my favourite lunches are predominantly one-ingredient ones. This time I suggest you take a cauliflower for your lunch at work. This vegetable has recently been forgotten and undervalued. I love it not only for its flavour, but also for its shape. It tastes best when roasted and served with tahini sauce, pomegranate and fresh cilantro.
This is the most beautiful car I have ever designed, said Frank Lamberty, who together with his team crafted the design of the new Audi A5 Coupé. The car is indeed impressive, it is a perfect balance of sports, aggressive silhouette with beautiful and precise line highlighting the sublime form of the vehicle.
