By training a cultural anthropologist, by calling a cook. From birth, Italian in temperament, but in reality, a Cracovian, not a Roman! A lover of books (not only cooking ones), a culinary journalist and blogger associated with the Kukbuk magazine, for whom he runs the blog as ’The Krakowski Makaroniarz’.
Co-operates with Czasem Wina, La Rivista, Pride magazine and Radio Krakow. When not cooking, runs the Miejsce Bar – a club in Krakow’s Kazimierz district. Every spare moment he spends in Italy, eating and enjoying Italian art. A graduate of the School of Sommeliers, and the first Polish winner of the Barilla Cup. As a cook, Bartek not only feeds friends, he also runs cooking workshops, in association with the ‘Kobiety i Wino’ Association – involving wine tastings, and also sits on the judges’ panel of cooking competitions.
