POLSKA: NEW POLISH COOKING
Young food writer Zuza Zak offers a fresh new take on Polish cooking, with recipes for snacks, party foods, preserves, soups, breads, fish, meat and poultry, all lavishly photographed by Laura Edwards. With 10 million of them living in the US and Polish being the second most-spoken language in the UK, people of Polish descent are keeping their cuisine alive all around the world. In her first, long-dreamed book, Zak provides a different angle and places Polish food within the context of the country’s history and geography, igniting a spark of reinvention.
Born in Poland but now based in London, Zak has finally fulfilled her dream project; publish a book that could connect her with her Slavic roots.
“Cooking is more than just making something to eat, it is a way of connecting to our planet, our past, other people and cultures,” Zak said. “Through food, I am rediscovering my own roots. I write not only about food, but also about life, because to me the two are inseparable.”
