Our kitchen makes the most of our possibilities and, in short, we do not take shortcuts.
We do not rely on semi-finished products or ready-made products. Products such as pates, roulades, roasted meats, jellies, various pastries and flour dishes and lots of other things we make ourselves, based on regional products ☺
The herbs we use to season them guarantee the unique and natural taste of all the dishes we serve to our guests. They need to be fresh and grown naturally... so we grow them ourselves! ☺
While relaxing on our charming terrace, you can come across clumps of thyme, rosemary, mint or basil.
Note: We allow you to nibble on herbs :)
We import Łomnickie cheeses directly from the certified organic farm "Kozia Łąka". The farm belongs to the European Network of Culinary Heritage. For several years, every year it has been included in the prestigious ranking of the Polish edition of the Gault & Millau Guide. In 2010, Kozi Łomnicki cheese was entered on the list of traditional products of the Ministry of Agriculture and bears the mark of the Karkonosze Local Brand and placed on the List of Traditional Products of the Lower Silesian Voivodeship. All products are made 100% in accordance with nature - no artificial fertilizers or pesticides are used.
The abundance of cheeses plays perfectly with our wine ☺
Our kitchen is full of real flour from the unique artisanal Młyn Skokowa. You will eat with us delicious dumplings, pancakes, cakes and various pastries, pasta and noodles and everything that is flour ☺ Młyn Skokowa is a family business run with passion from generation to generation by one family since 1955.
White and wholemeal flour from wheat and rye or spelled are non-standardized flours, unlike in industrial mills - without any improvers, preservatives or chemical additives. The grain is obtained from local, small-area, proven farmers.
Bread is the basis of every polish breakfast. We focus on natural and tasty pastries. Every morning we get freshly baked bread from a tiny, local and family bakery that has been tirelessly run by Mr. Stanisław Raźny, owner of the Górska Piekarnia in Szklarska Poręba. Most importantly, Mr. Stanisław does not add any leavening agents, preservatives or thickeners to the bread. Someone once said nicely about this place: "The Mountain Bakery appears to me as a bastion of Polish bakery art, in which one is faithful to tradition..."
Honey is the only food product that does not spoil, but remember that honey can be spoiled (watering, heating, adding sugar, etc.). We want to make sure that the honey we serve you is natural and of the highest quality, which is why we have established cooperation with Patryk Waloszczyk - a local apiary in Dziwiszów - "Apiary of the Bóbr Valley - Honey from the Karkonosze and the Izera Mountains". The Wędrowne Doliny Bóbr apiaries offer varietal honeys from the Jelenia Góra Valley and the Karkonosze foothills.
Mountain regions have always concentrated multiple plants
that cannot be found anywhere else. Among the many herbs, saffron, the popular yellow crocus, was particularly sought
after in the Jizera Mountains and the Karkonosze Mountains. Saffron is the most expensive culinary supplement with a characteristic honey-bitter taste. A few threads are enough
to change the whole dish.
Szafran Izerski from Górzyniec has accompanied our cooking almost from the very beginning of the Willa Discoverers' existence.
Dear Guests, it is not the fashion for natural products, but the truth and consistency dictate us to treat you with what we want to eat ourselves. Juices from Darek Przerwa - a product not only regional, but most of all, natural. The juices are pasteurized, naturally cloudy (sediment is a natural phenomenon),
no preservatives, no water or sugar - they only contain naturally occurring sugars. Juices are pressed only from fruits from the Baryczy Valley.
Although Poland does not have rich wine-making traditions,
the slogan "Pole can do" with regard to grapevine and wine production works 100%. Vineyards, small in terms of acreage, produce original wines, which can positively surprise both connoisseurs and occasional wine drinkers.
At the Willa Odkrywców Hotel we offer wines from proven vineyards. Every day we have something for you to discover...
“It was entered on the list of traditional products as the first drink in Lower Silesia with an alcohol content above 18%. It was created on the basis of a recipe from Staniszów from 200 years ago”, says Tomasz Łuszpiński, the creator of the current composition of the Karkonoski Liqueur. Liqueur has healing properties: it improves circulation, metabolism and digestion. Herbal aroma, sweet taste from forest fruits and bitter aftertaste from herbal extracts. The liqueur has been labeled with the Karkonosze Local Brand.
A small, craft brewery located in Miedzianka (the amazing history of this place!) And referring to the old pre-war brewery located in Kupferberg (German: Miedzianki;). The original beer brewed in Miedzianka Brewery is unique and one of a kind, and the styles of beer produced in this tiny brewery will surely satisfy even the most demanding tastes (Witbier, American Pale Ale, Kolsh-style beer, smoked dark beer or Wheat Stout).
In the era of mass-produced beer flooding the market, regional products are returning to favors and guests are more and more willing to reach for good quality drinks. "Dolina Bobru" is not the typical beer that we can find in a store today. Each batch is different from the previous one. New, non-standard ingredients are added, as well as such ordinary, classic ingredients, but
in a new version, i.e. hops not only from Poland or Germany,
but also from New Zealand, America or Australia.
The brewery in Lwówek Śląski has over 100 years of tradition.
His fate over time was complicated, but in 2009, when Browar Lwówek Śląski was bought by the Browar Ciechan company, fate smiled at him. Major renovation works were carried out and new brewing equipment was modernized and purchased. In May 2010, the brewery resumed beer production - only in natural ways!
- making it one of the best local beers. The taste of beers from the Lwówek Brewery has been appreciated during many brewing competitions.
