Sardine Festival

The second in a series of gourmet events, which make up this year’s Novigrad Gourmet Festival Gnam-gnam Fest, is dedicated to the sardine and other oily fish. It has long been known that oily fish, perhaps the most widely known of which is the sardine, are a very rich source of protein, unsaturated omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D and vitamins of the B group, making them a particularly healthy and desirable part of our diet. If you wish to reduce the level of cholesterol in your body, improve the elasticity of blood vessel walls and in this way aid the regulation of your blood pressure and reduce the risk of clogged blood vessels, the sardine and other oily fish – anchovies, mackerel, tuna – should be on your table as often as possible.
