"...blends recipes for favorite Polish foods with the history and culture which created them, using seasonal arrangement to explore Polish life and how food traditions evolved. Recipes have been adapted for American kitchens but retain their authentic roots, while plenty of Polish cultural insights make for inviting leisure browsing by more than just the cook."-The Midwest Book Review
This popular cookbook by beloved Polish-American author Sophie Hodorowicz Knab combines more than 100 recipes for favorite Polish foods with the history and cultural traditions that created them. Arranged according to the cycle of seasons, it explores life in the Polish countryside through the year and gives readers priceless historical information and insightful answers to common questions (like the meaning behind the Pascal butter lamb) asked by descendants of Polish immigrants. It has been updated with a section on Polish Feasts & Festivals. Lovely illustrations and pearls of practical wisdom ("Household Hints") from the old Polish kitchen marvelously complement this book.
This charming cookbook is perfect for Polish Americans, home cooks, food history buffs, and those seeking to learn more about their Slavic roots.

" ...Knab can be an engaging and informative writer; her brief sections on sauerkraut making, cabbage, and Christmas are especially illuminating. A particular delight are the hand-drawn illustrations by Elliott Hutten."--Gastronomica
