What is polish food?
- BIGOS – a Polish national dish made of cabbage, sauerkraut, cuts of meat and sausages. People in Poland eat bigos during Christmas time and we season it with forest mushrooms and a glass of red wine. It’s strange but delicious
- POLISH DUMPLINGS. The fillings may range from meat, to sauerkraut, to fruits (especially blackberries) but I especially love pierogi ruskie (literally Russian pierogi) filled with boiled potatoes, cottage cheese and onion
- GOŁABKI -cabbage rolls made of cabbage leaves stuffed with spiced minced meat and rice, sometimes served with tomato sauce
- KOTLET SCHABOWY – pork cutlet coated with breadcrumbs. It’s very similar to a Viennese schnitzel but we still believe it’s one of our national dishes
- PLACKI ZIEMNIACZANE – fried potato pancakes. They’re usually garnished with gulasz (see above), mushroom sauce or sour cream. Probably my favourite Polish dish
