Our family-run shop, Europa Carnegie, opened its doors in 2012. Owner and baker Ryszard Janczewski formerly owned the hugely successful Europa Cakeshop in Acland Street, St.Kilda, where he mastered his trade over a period of 15 years. We use the finest quality preservative-free ingredients to make a delicious and wide variety of fresh desserts, breads, and bagels, as well as traditional Polish cuisine.
Experienced staff provide friendly service, and we offer vegetarian and gluten free options. The shop is open 7 days a week till late, and is fully licensed. Our Polish style cheesecake featured on SBS programme Food Safari. In it, baker Ryszard shows award-winning food and cooking author Maeve O'Meara how to make one of our most popular favourite cakes. See video below.
Watch as our baker Ryszard shares his recipe for Krakow-style cheesecake with host Maeve O'Meara on the SBS programme, Food Safari:
"This Polish cheesecake is recognisable by the lattice pattern layered over the sweet cheese and sultana filling, which is created using a reserved portion of the pastry base". To view the ingredients and cooking instructions, see the SBS food recipe page.
