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.

About Me
Hi! I’m passionate about cooking, I enjoy Italian and French cuisine and I’m definitely in love with polish cuisine. I’m a student at University of Washington, Seattle, I enjoy reading, travelling, getting to know the world and other people. Sport in particular jogging and sailing could be confidently classified as my most favorite way of spending free time :)
My favorite things to cook
Pasta with basil, delicate cheese souce, and fried shrimps in olive oil and butter served with the glass of red wine. Crapes, sushi, rosól (traditional polish soup), and barszcz served with pierogi filled with mushrooms and cabbage (another traditional polish dish).
My favorite family cooking traditions
First thing to come to my mind when thinking about family cooking traditions is Christmas dinner with all marvelous dishes that literally melt in your mouth – from mushroom soup and barszcz czerwony (polish soup) to pierogi and cakes. Very special for me was to eat meals together with my family - it’s a great way to strengthen family ties.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs are deviled eggs with parsley or with mushrooms and onions. Cooking for the first time Toskanska soup was also a very pleasurable experience.
My cooking tragedies
Adding too much salt to one of my soups. It was unmanageable to save.
