Polish cuisine is very eclectic, having evolved over centuries and been influenced by many different cultures. It is rich in meat, especially pork, chicken and beef (depending upon the region) as well as winter vegetables and spices. Since Poland joined EU its traditional cuisine has become better known and continues to gain in popularity.
Polish sausages come in many different varieties: smoked or fresh, pork, beef, turkey, lamb, chicken or veal and every region has its own speciality.
A popular Polish tradition is cooking ‘kielbasa’ on skewers outside over a campfire. This way of preparing and eating them is considered great fun and the open air and smell of smoke make ‘kielbasa’ taste amazing.
