This really is a great opportunity to learn from the masters of European traditional Charcuterie.
The biggest trouble is that I can't read, write or speak Polish.
I am fluent in 4 other European languages.
If I can get Redzed and others to attend as well NEXT YEAR, I will enrol in this class.
My wife usually goes to England once a year and I could divert to Poland, back to the UK through Holland to see my relations as well. What a ripper holiday!!!!!!!!!! Hmmmmmm!!!
What about it Red, CW and other members?

It`s true, Maxell sent its post 4 years ago but such trainings are organized a few times each year in Poland. Look at that:
Maybe dedicated training with translation for English-spoken people is possible to organize. I propose to contact with Maxell in this matter.

That just goes to show you what an IT expert I am and on top of that I am always flat out.
Luckily, Ciechowy homed in on this, hopefully there might be something happening next year when I would have plenty of time for a long overdue holiday and some charcuterie tutoring by the masters.

i am going to definitely go to this school next year around this time because i am very interested and sounds awesome. my grandma on my dads side of the family lives in warshawa and my uncle on my mom side lives in Wrocław i think warsaw will be closer but don't know how long of a drive. me and my dad are going to Poland next year to visit my family out there and going to go to this school for sure. i speak good polish but my writing is on the weak side. me and my family only speak polish in our house and both my mom and dad were born in Poland. if anyone from the forum would like to join me and go to the school we can plan a date next year and go. and red zed you should go with me. also i want to see that video that your guys are talking about in English or polish. also i want to take a week class and not 3 days don't know if that if possible

We were in Wrocław a few years back. ...delightful place, easily accessible by train from Leipzig, which is itself easily accessible by the DB (German train system) from Munich or Frankfurt (via Mannheim). I would think that the trip onward to Warsaw via train would be easy, too, and a whole lot cheaper than renting a car.

...looking forward to your translating efforts. Many of us in the English-speaking world are dying to get our hands on translated tapes of this conference. There is so much to learn!
