Not to be missed, a new pdf lays bare Poland’s rich gastronomic heritage
A lovingly written and tender tribute to domestic culinary culture, The Polish Table by Magdalena Tomaszewska-Bolałek combines no shortage of recipes and beautiful imagery with the inside histories behind local cooking.
Available as a free pdf, and co-financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it’s inside this comprehensive, bi-lingual tome that readers will learn the favorite dishes King Stanisław Augustus (braised mutton and oysters), the biggest hits of 18th century royal chef Jan Szyttler (elk nostrils boiled in stock!), the full story behind Poland’s feasting customs and no shortage of tales and legends – such as, for instance, how the town of Suchedniów exchanged a statue of a saint for a bag of groats!
