    How to Cook dishes from Poland

    Poland Poland is famous for its agricultural produce, and it is from this that Polish cuisine draws most of its ingredients. Some highlights of Polish cuisine include cereals (such as barley, buckwheat, millet, rye, and wheat), fermented diary products (curd cheese, sour cream, and soured milk), pickled vegetables (including beetroot, cabbage, cucumber, and kohlrabi), pickled herring from the Baltic, and of course for the world-famous kielbasa (the Polish sausage).

    Some popular Polish recipes and dishes include:
    • Barszcz - The Polish version of borscht. A soup made from red beetroot, onions, garlic and other vegetables. Bacon, other meats, or cut vegetables may sometimes be added. On Christmas Eve, a vegetarian version of soup is eaten with small dumplings (uszka) filled with mushrooms or kapusta kiszona (the Polish version of sauerkraut).

    • Bigos - A stew made from fermented cabbage (kapusta kiszona - the Polish version of sauerkraut) or fresh cabbage, with meat. Mushrooms, tomatoes, and honey are also usually added, as are various seasonings such as bay leaf, caraway, juniper berries, marjoram, pepper or pimento. Various meats may be used, including bacon, beef, ham, kielbasa (Polish sausage), pork (sometimes smoked), or venison. Bigos is usually served with rye bread and potatoes.

    • Kapusta Kiszona - Sauerkraut

    • Kartacze - Potato dumplings stuffed with meat and marjoram.

    • Kielbasa - A traditional Polish sausage. There are many varieties, which fall into two broad categories: fresh and dry.


    • Knysza - Pita bread with meat and cabbage.

    • Kopytka - Baked potato dumplings served with bacon, cheese, or onion.

    • Kwaśnica - A stew made from meat and kapusta kiszona (the Polish version of sauerkraut).

    • Pierogi - Stuffed boiled dumplings. They are often filled with quark cheese, potatoes and fried onions (Russkie pierogi)

    • Zrazy wolowe - Beef chops in sauce.

    • Zrazy wolowe zawijane - Chopped dill cucumbers and onions wrapped with thin strips of beef.

    This is a fresh new take on Polish cooking from young food writer Zuza Zak.

    • The Crown Classic Cookbook Series
    Product Description:
    Poland, like France, is a country where people really know food. One can stop at a wayside inn in the country or at a modest restaurant in a working-class city neighborhood and be served a meal worth remembering. Good food is a tradition.

    Polish Cookery is an American adaptation of Uniwersalna Ksiazka Kucharska (The Universal Cookbook), long the most famous standard cookbook in Poland. All weights and measures have been converted to American usage, and suitable substitutions are provided for hard-to-get ingredients. The recipes range from the familiar to the exotic and include soups like Polish Mushroom and Barley Soup, Fresh Cabbage Soup, many variations of Barszcz, the famous Polish beet soup, and Sorrel Soup with Sour Cream.

    The Poles are very fond of pates, dumplings, and meat pastries. In Polish Cookery, you'll find recipes for Meat Patties, Potato Croquettes, Venison Pastry, Partridge Pie, Game Pate, many variations on the celebrated Pierogi, or dough pockets, and Buckwheat Cakes.

    Authentic entrees include Loin of Venison, Roast Wild Goose, Smothered Pike, Turkey in Madeira Sauce. Chicken Casserole with Currants, Smothered Duck in Caper Sauce, Hussar Pot Roast, Tenderloin Smothered in Sour Cream, and perhaps Poland's most famous dish, Bigos, or Hunter's Stew.

    To round out the Polish meal, there are recipes for Mashed Turnips and Potatoes, Split Pea Fritters, Stuffed Kohlrabi, Fried Carrots, Mushroom Ramekins, and Pearl Barley with Dried Mushrooms.

    Finally Polish Cookery offers such dessert treats as Almond Torte, Cracow Torte, Spice Cake, and Almond Babka.

    Polish cuisine evolved over centuries, a combination of East and West, aristocratic hauteur and peasant fare. It is a rich culinary heritage that is faithfully represented here in Polish Cookery.
