“Over the years, I have enjoyed baking and tinkering and perfecting some of my favourite recipes, as well as travelling to Poland in search of something new. This book, is as much of a resource for me as I hope it will become for you,” says Ren.

In her first book, Wild Honey & Rye, Ren took her readers on a journey of discovery through this long misunderstood cuisine. The Polish food scene is changing – the focus is swinging away from heavy dumplings and stews towards lighter, healthier, fresh and seasonal recipes, served in contemporary ways. The recipes in her first collection represent the very best of the Polish kitchen, inspired both by the food of her childhood and by the new wave of flavours to be found in the trendy restaurants, cafes and farmers markets of modern Poland.
