Additional Details

Description: Today's Polish cuisine is a blend of hearty peasant dishes and more elegant gourmet fare, assimilating a broad cross-section of cultural influences (Lithuanian, Ukrainian, French, Italian, Jewish, Bohemian, Bavarian, etc.) without losing its distinctly Slavic flavor. A middle-of-the-road cuisine, it does not require exotic, expensive or hard-to-get ingredients. 

Polish Heritage Cookery is the most extensive and varied Polish cookbook ever published in English, with over 2,200 recipes in 29 categories, written especially for Americans, with American weights, measures and temperatures. Each recipe is indexed under its American and Polish name. 

Included are the elegant cuisine of Old Poland, the simple peasant cookery, and everything in between. The book is interlaced with cultural notes and historical background on Polish foods and eating habits. Both traditional and simplified versions of Polish classic recipes are provided, together with countless hints and shortcuts to achieving traditional flavors using convenience items and modern appliances.
