Hi everyone J
I’m coming back to you after some time with new, fresh wave of breath taking stories about culture of Poland mostly including delicious facts straight from the kitchen.
Speaking of which, you might be interested in uncovering how actually Polish kitchen looks like. It may seem for all of us that all of the kitchens in the world look and work exactly the same way as our own kitchen, but I guess
it’s not that easy, actually it might be sometimes very different. In case of Poland and US, our kitchens are indeed similar, we are both part of western civilization and its influence makes many things the same or very alike in both countries. The equipment
is the same and way of eating is also the same. Differences appear in details. Table is is an important part in Polish house. It’s a place where family is brought together to spend time with each other, regardless of what each member has still to do (homework,
work assignments, report etc.) it’s a family time.
If you will be invited one day to Poland by your best friend there are few things to remember. Even though for majority of us these things are obvious, it’s important not to forget them. First of all you start eating when everyone
is sitting in his or her chair and also starts eating, unless you will be told to do otherwise. It’s a part of culture and that way you’re showing good manners. It’s also important to take your time, not be in a hurry while eating. Polish people are very hospitable
and they want to make you fell like home when you’re in their house, but it doesn’t mean they will not evaluate you based on your manners.
I wrote in my previous blog about dinner in Poland and different parts of it like soup, main dish, and dessert. Now something about fast food. Overall fast food is not popular in Poland. The only time when you eat fast food is either
when you are student and you have no time to cook and your diet is not on the list of top priorities for you, or you are on the party with your friends and pizza is just a right thing to eat. Overall as I said, fast food is not something popular in Poland.
