Traditional Polish food is a real calorie bomb, but once you try it, you won’t be able to resist the temptation.

Pierogi (Polish dumplings)

To start with, I must tell you about the Polish dumplings. Made of thinly rolled out dough filled with a variety of fillings. Pierogi is a Polish dish that is always served at Christmas.


Rosół is the most common soup served in Poland. It tastes best after Sunday church in cold weather. It is very easy and quick to prepare, usually served with home-made noodles. It is a very friendly and hearty dish.


It is a very traditional Polish dish and its basic ingredients are shredded sauerkraut, fresh cabbage (sometimes only sauerkraut is used), various types of meat and sausages, dried mushrooms, prunes, onions and spices.

Polish crescent biscuits

If you fancy something sweeter for your snack, you can try the traditional Polish croissant biscuits. They are filled with jam and made of puff pastry.


Polish golabki, which means “little pigeons”, is cooked minced meat, often with onions and mushrooms, wrapped in a white cabbage leaf and simmered.


If you are looking for a dish to warm you up in winter in Poland, I think this unique and humble soup would be perfect. The Polish version is traditionally eaten around Easter. It is known as Polish Rye Soup and is prepared by fermenting the grain (rye) and cooking it with sausages, bacon or ham. It is an extremely rich dish with a sweet and sour taste.
