 Another World Episode 22

Cracow City Restaurant

Cracow City Restaurant

This week: food in Belfast.
First, to the city’s first Polish restaurant, Cracow City, located on the Cregagh Road in East Belfast. Its owner tells of why he opened Cracow City, how he’s adapted Polish home-cooking to the Irish palate, and upcoming events at the restaurant. He also treats us to a Polish sing-along, with some of Cracow City’s customers providing him back-up vocals.
Then, to St. George’s Market to hear from Brian Wallace, who runs an independent organic farm with his family near Coleraine. They sell fruits, vegetables and meat at the market every Saturday. He explains why they decided to start their own farm, what the advantages and drawbacks of going organic are, and how local farmers cope with the business practices of supermarket giants like Tesco.
