Traditional Polish cooking

Traditional Polish cooking has many advocates around the world. Our food traditions have long history dating back to the Middle Ages. Although very few recipes are preserved from that period. Generally speaking, our culinary heritage has roots in rural areas. And it has always been based on local produce. For centuries Poland did not have a wide access to imported spices and vegetables. Therefore local cooks made very good use of whatever grew in the garden or was available to hunt for in a nearby forest. Moreover, the most popular dishes are strongly rooted in the religious traditions. Catholic celebrations have always been occassions to feast at tables full of traditional Polish delicacies. The staple Christmas or Easter dishes have eventually become symbols of Polish cooking. Examples include: pierogi, pascha, herrings, poppy seed cake, mazurek and many others.
