Polska: New Polish Cooking Cookbook

This beautiful collection of recipes from Poland honors tradition and affirms contemporary Polish fare. As Zak reminds us, “The word Poland derives from the word ‘pole’, which means ‘field’; so even the name of my country is connected with the earth. We define ourselves through our cuisine which we love deeply, nurture and continue to uphold.”

Part culinary history, part family history, Zuza Zak takes us to old-fashioned Polish inns, Communist milk bars, modern city restaurants, and her own family table as we discover the soul of her country.

Enjoy the three recipes featured below: a new twist on borscht, easy spelt rolls, and creamy mulled beer.
