Culinary and TV reporter
After the change of the social system in Poland, Maciej Kuron - unlike his father - moved away from politics and took up cooking . He became a famous cook , then the owner of a restaurant in Warsaw .
Kouronya still has a son - Maciej. He ... preferred to open his own restaurant in the center of Warsaw. This is a very successful enterprise in which they feed well (I know from my own experience) and which is never empty.
