According to Wanda Hennig, “A sublime Polish dinner had lulled me into a state of sedation. Into this ricocheted the shrapnel of a South African nightmare.

“Given the excesses of our foray into Jan Baran’s fresh, local, creative, contemporary take on the culinary renaissance going on in Poland—they know the hunter who shot the deer in a forest near Krakow and have photos of the beef farmer with his cows—I am feeling sated and python-like sedated when, in his stumbling English, my host drops the bomb.”

He said: “I have a friend who went to South Africa. He shot and killed a black man because the black man was a communist. My friend is in prison: more than 20 years.”
