BLURB/FLYLEAF: Polish gourmet traditions are as old as Polish culture, which has a written history of over a thousand years. And here is the definitive Polish cookbook, containing 500 authentic recipes which reflect the proud traditions of the ancient country.
Polish cuisine is fragrant with herbs - dill, caraway, green parsley. Onions are used in many dishes, and sour cream is an important ingredient in all soups and sauces. There is an unusual variety of dishes in all categories.
This cookbook is remarkably complete - down to desserts and 83 recipes for famous Polish pastries - tortes, babas, and honey or cheese cakes.
This cookbook is a truly superb one: superb because of the quality and authenticity of its 500 recipes; modern, fast, easy cooking methods; and because the author, a native of Poland, is a talented cook and writer who describes the colorful and ancient customs of Poland and provides entertaining details about the origins of some of the historic dishes.
