Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Eat Smart in Poland provides a good introduction to the still rather exotic and little-known world of Polish cookery. This stimulating, easy-to-read book presents a lively historical background on Poland, once the biggest country in Europe, and contains what is probably the most extensive Polish culinary lexicon ever published in English. It also includes everthing visitors need to know before they start restaurant hopping in Warsaw, Krakow, Gdansk and places in between. An added bonus for culinary do-it-yourselfers is a nice selection of authentic Polish recipes from both sides of the Atlantic.”—Robert Stybel, author of Polish Heritage Cookery

“Poland is quickly becoming one of the great travel destinations of Europe. I hope everyone who decides to visit Poland will take a copy of Eat Smart in Poland. It picks up where almost every other guidebook about Poland seems to stop. There’s history, a regional food guide, recipes and a guide that would help visitors to Poland make just the right selections from a menu. A keeper.”—Sophie Hodorowicz Knab, author of Polish Customs, Traditions and Folklore
