Overview

Since the 1830s millions of Poles, often overcoming oppression and hardship, have come to Chicago with a dream of freedom, a willingness to work and a love of country, both old and new. This new groundbreaking work, Polish Chicago: Our History—Our Recipes, recounts by vivid prose, rare photographs and poignant anecdote the amazing story of these indomitable people. To many, food is nourishment. To Polish Americans, food is a cause for sharing, celebration and for honoring tradition. As such, Polish Chicago: Our History—Our Recipes turns a spotlight on 36 Polish American restaurants and families who opened up their kitchens to share time-tested, delectable Polish recipes. Sponsored by The Polish Museum of America, and written by Joseph W. Zurawski, an expert on the Polish American experience for over 50 years, Polish Chicago: Our History—Our Recipes is a handsome, 240-page, hardbound volume containing 720 rare historical photographs and exquisite food photographs by nationally renowned photographer Katherine Bish.
