Poland

Post Slideshow Image?>

I have a shameful secret. I live in a city where Polish shops (or polski skleps) are plentiful and yet I had never been in one until now. A five minute drive to Korona Delicatessen in Catford and that has now been rectified.

As per all the countries we “visit” for TheTasteTrail I did a lot of research to come up with our recipes for Poland, and in doing so came across a plethora of videos of people trying Polish snacks.  One of the first things I learnt was that people really like Prince Polo bars

so I bought one to see what the fuss was all about…

They’re like a rich man’s kit kat!  I can understand the hype.

Pierogi, bagels, bigos, golabki… Polish cuisine is first class.  Give it a go.
