Poland's Gourmet Cuisine is a unique portrayal, through a culinary prism, of the Polish countryside. The characteristic cuisine of Bernard Lussiana, Executive Chef of Warsaw's Hotel Bristol, is inspired by the spirit and beauty of the nation's lakes, rivers and plains--his recipes wrought from the wealth of produce found therein. Dishes which prove the potential of the Polish kitchen are illustrated by photographs of the country's landscape and fragments of some of Poland's most evocative poetry. A mingling of the senses--visual, artistic, literary, sensual and culinary--this book unfolds to reveal a dream of Poland rarely glimpsed.
