Mr Mariusz Tkaczyk, Gastronomy Specialist at Qubus Hotel chain can also be proud of his success, namely the first prize in the barbecue sauce category he won with his "Polish BBQ Kings" team in "Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational Barbecue" competition.
- It was my eighth BBQ competition. The beginnings were difficult as I was just starting to learn the secrets of American cuisine. Yet, I managed to win the titles of BBQ Champion and Vice-Champion twice. The fact that I could take part in the competition was already a great reward. Our team is the only Polish team in the competition. This year we succeeded in winning the first prize in the "BBQ sauce" category. Americans are champions in this field, yet it was Polish ideas that won the recognition of the jury and got us the first prize. Our BBQ sauce will be introduced to the American market in 2014 and will be sold all over the country - says Mariusz Tkaczyk - BBQ is a great fun combined with learning as well as a lifestyle and passion at the same time. During the competition we had the opportunity to work with the best chefs in the USA. Now I can share the knowledge with my colleagues in Poland. I feel proud and really happy to represent our country in the New World - sums up Mr Tkaczyk.
