Spalding's Springfields hosting new pop-up east European food kiosk
A pop-up food kiosk has opened at Springfields in Spalding, selling traditional east European cuisine.
The kiosk is selling pierogi (filled dumplings), sourdough bread sandwiches and desserts in specially-designed American Airstream-style trailers.
Pierogi are made by wrapping unleavened dough around a savoury or sweet filling and cooking in boiling water, or pan-frying.
The man behind the kiosk is chef Damian Wawrzyniak, of Peterborough’s House of Feasts, which has just been awarded Casual Dining Restaurant of the Year for the East Midlands.
Damian is internationally renowned, having previously worked at the two Michelin-starred restaurant NOMA in Copenhagen. He has also catered for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and cooked at the 2012 Olympics.
He said: “I want to bring eastern European food to a wide audience and Springfields Outlet is the perfect destination for our next Pierogi Kiosk. For busy shoppers on-the-go, these delicious dumplings are ideal. If you know them, you know how good they are. For me, it’s always been about introducing diners to Polish dishes with a British twist.”
Springfields Outlet retail director said: “Offering a wide choice of fantastic food and drink has always been our aim. Damian’s Pierogi Kiosk will be an innovative addition to the offer, a perfect treat for shopping trips.
“Anyone who has been fortunate enough to visit Damian’s restaurant will be well aware of the quality of the delicious food being served up.Weekday late night shopping runs up until Christmas with all stores open until 9pm with free parking after 6pm.”
The kiosk is open until May.
