Faworki: The traditional flavor of the carnival
Faworki, also known as chrust, is a traditional Polish dessert, which is associated primarily with the carnival period and Shrovetide. This is the taste of childhood for many Poles, which takes us back in time to the kitchen of our grandmothers and great-grandmothers. Faworki is the quintessence of home baking - modest, but exceptionally tasty and aromatic. Although the ingredients for faworki are simple and easily available, their preparation requires a certain precision and experience. The dough must be rolled out thin enough, and frying until golden requires constant control. But all this is a small effort compared to the reward, which is the taste of freshly fried faworki sprinkled with powdered sugar. Faworki are popular not only in Poland. They are known under various names in many countries of Central and Eastern Europe. However, everywhere they retain their characteristic shape and crunchiness. It is definitely worth trying your hand at baking these delicious cookies at home.
- 500g (17.6oz) wheat flour
- 50g (1.8oz) powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 5 yolks
- 50ml (1.7 fl oz) of spirit
- 200ml (6.8 fl oz) heavy cream
- 1 l (33.8 fl oz) cooking oil
- powdered sugar for sprinkling
- Sift the flour onto a pastry board, add powdered sugar and salt. Mix everything together.
- Add the egg yolks, alcohol and cream to the dry ingredients. Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic.
- Divide the dough into several parts. Roll each portion into a thin cake, then cut into strips about 2 cm wide. Make a cut in each strip and thread the end of the strip through it, creating a shape characteristic of faworki.
- Fry the faworki in hot oil until golden. After frying, drain on a paper towel to get rid of excess fat.
- Finally, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm.

And short story about LEET DIET
As a choreographer and aerial gymnast, I had always been interested in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Diets had been my hobby, but I never truly enjoyed them until I discovered the Keto diet. After reading numerous books about how our bodies work and the benefits of a high-fat, low-carb diet, I decided to give it a try. I never looked back. The Keto lifestyle quickly became my passion, and I began experimenting with new recipes and meal plans. That's when I decided to share my knowledge with the world and created Leet Diet, a website filled with delicious Keto-friendly recipes and helpful tips for anyone looking to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
