Poland: Recipes and Cuisine

Both Central European and Slavic in character, Polish cooking centers around braised and roasted meats, homemade noodles and a wide variety of cabbage dishes. Polish food is hearty and filling. Many types of sausages, but especially kielbasa, are popular. Dumplings called pierogi are stuffed with both savory and sweet fillings and are boiled and sometimes fried. Sour and heavy cream enrich soups and stews.
