Book summary

Now updated with a new chapter on Lighter Polish Fare! First published in 1983, this classic resource for Polish cuisine has been a favorite with home chefs for many years. This new edition includes a chapter on Light Polish Fare with ingenious tips for reducing fat, calories and cholesterol, without compromising the flavor of fine Polish cuisine. Fragrant herbal rubs and vinegars add panache without calories. Alternatives and conversion tables for butter, sour cream and milk will help readers lighten other recipes as well.

In an easy-to-use menu format, the author arranges complementary and harmonious foods together--all organized in seasonal cycles. Spring menus include "Braised Spring Lamb with Cabbage," "Baby Carrots Polonaise," and "Wild Strawberries with Sour Cream." Cool and light summer menus make the most of fresh fruits and vegetables: "Frosty Artichoke Salad," "Fresh Peas with Dill Butter," and "Chilled Blueberry Soup." Autumn recipes include "Polish Sausage simmered in Wine," "Apple Raisin Cake," and "Hunter's Stew." The winter chapter highlights plentiful offerings such as "Roast Duck Served with Red Cabbage," "Smoked Salmon Omelets" and "Christmas Eve Bread." [via]
