The Polish Table

Free ebook - a culinary journey into Poland

The table is not only a piece of furniture. It is also often the centre of a culinary universe around which people sit to talk, laugh and enjoy food. It’s a magical place where tradition meets the present day. We often don’t realise how many fascinating stories are connected to our favourite dishes and ingredients, yet flavours, smells and stories have a long-lasting place in our memory. Discovering the world through culinary culture is a wonderful adventure. I invite you to sit at the table – the Polish table.
