In a Polish Country House Kitchen

Anne Applebaum, Danielle Crittenden


In My Polish Country House Kitchen is a beautifully written cookbook that explores the fall of Communism and its wide-ranging culinary and cultural effects through the lens of food. This is not the discovery of a trend, but rather the rediscover of something that was always there. The book contains 90 recipes and evocative headnotes that paint a picture of Polish country life that expands a reader’s understanding of Polish history, foodways and culture.
