Two weeks ago, New Poland Express, my weekly source of Polish news in English, held a quiz in which someone with the right answer would receive a copy of From a Polish Country House Kitchen, pictured above.
My friend, Klaudia, had recommend the book to me, so I was very interested. A quick google and I had the answer to their question.
It took a week, but of all the entries received, my name was chosen. (It was probably ;-) the only one.)
The book just arrived. The recipes aren't the MoPo (modern Polish cuisine) that we've enjoyed in some restaurants, but the are a new, lighter take on traditional dishes adapted for American ingredients. It's full of beautiful color photos, my favorite part of any cookbook. After reading the co-authors preface and introduction, I know I'll enjoy the book; their passion for food comes through in a way that sounds more friendly than academic. I feel like I've found kindred spirits.
