VodaFest at the Polish Festival

This month VodaFest participated at the Polish Festival at Federation square. Our team quickly Polish Festivalpicked up a nick name of "blue team" and was introducing to the broader Australian public Czech and Slovak food specialties such as BBQ cikanska, veal pattie, beef goulash and traditional cakes.
