Polish Kotlet Schabowy (Pork Cutlet) - recipe


How to make Polish Kotlet Schabowy (Pork Cutlet)


You will need:

  • Good quality pork
  • 1 egg
  • Flour
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper
  • Margarine or lard

This dish extremely popular in Poland and very simple to prepare. It’s rather impossible to spoil it, provided that the  pork you get for it is OK. Smile


  1. Get some good quality pork. Cut it in several pieces  (or simply buy it in pieces) and beat each one with a mallet so it’s more or less oval in shape. A single chop should not be too thin. You may cover the meat with foil to prevent its specks from flying around. 

  2. Rub salt and pepper into each chop on both sides.

  3. Dip the chops in flour, raw stirred egg and breadcrumbs. 

  4. Heat up some oil on the pan (use margarine or lard) and place the chops in the pan. 

  5. Fry until they become golden.


Serve the kotlets with potatoes and sauerkraut or mizeria (cucumber salad) or some other salad (a tomato one for instance). You may use either whole or grated potatoes. If you want to, spread some fresh dill (leaves) on the potatoes.

Potato pancakes - recipe


How to make Polish Potato Pancakes.


This is a very simple but very enjoyable dish. Cool

You will need:

  • 4 lb. potatoes
  • 1-2 oz. onion
  • 1/2 glass milk
  • 1 oz. flour
  • 1-2 eggs
  • Salt, pepper (optional)
  • Vegetable oil


  1. Grate peeled potatoes and onions and mix them together. 

  2. Pour in boiling milk while stirring. Add eggs, flour and salt. Add pepper if you like. Mix it all up. 

  3. Don’t wait too long with the rest of the preparation because the fresher the mixture the better the cakes. 

  4. Heat the oil in a pan. Then put on the pan portions of the prepared mass. Each portion will become a separate pancake. It should not be too thick. The shape will be more or less oval. 

  5. Fry the pancakes, flipping them every now and then until they get brownish and crispy on both sides. They should be served directly after being prepared when they’re still fresh and crunchy.

Pierogi Festival in Krakow

The 7th annual Pierogi Festival in Krakow took place on 14th-16th August. Several restaurants and food producers presented their offers.

There was a lot to taste: pierogis with different fillings, either cooked or fried with their crispy golden crust, as well as traditional oscypek cheese from the mountains.

Live music was played onstage. And not just Polish folk music. As it turned out for example, sung jazz standards go very well with Polish pierogi! See our photos of this event.

If you want to take part in the next Pierogi Festival, visit Poland and Krakow next year! Smile


What is Polish food?


First of all let me tell you that Polish food is fun. If you have ever tasted Pierogi, Golabki, Duck with Apples or, say, Roasted Trout, you’ll most likely agree with that right away.

But there are many more dishes. Meat, fish, poultry, dumplings, cakes, soups, cheeses, vegetables  etc. – they all come in very different forms, prepared in different ways, with different sauces, as regional specialties, and so on. It is this variety which is probably the most important thing about Polish food. It means a rich choice of tastes and flavors, which makes any gourmet happy.

Where does this enjoyable variety come from? First of tradition and history.

A few centuries ago Poland was one of the biggest countries in the world - home to many different nationalities. Not only did they provide they own culinary input, but Polish nobility were always eager to include novelties from abroad into their cooking.

In this way Polish food became a term encompassing a great deal of  ideas, coming from inside and outside of the country alike. And that’s exactly why in Polish cuisine you’ll find Ukrainian, French, German, Italian, Jewish, Hungarian, Oriental and other influences.

And what is Polish food like today?
