I wanted something sourish and typically done in a colder season in Poland. Bigos is a traditional Polish dish containing lots of vitamin C (perfect for winter season). It’s a savory stew of cabbage and meat. According to Wikipedia bigos is said to have been introduced to Poland by Jogaila, a Lithuanian Grand Duke who became Polish king Władysław Jagiełło in 1385 and who supposedly served it to his hunting-party guests. Literally it means a big mess. Enjoy!
I think this is by far my favorite polish dish and when I go to Poland my mom prepares some for me. Since I did not visit Poland for a long time I decided to make some pierogi on my own. There are thousand recipes of how to prepare pierogi’s dough. I simply asked my mom and they came out as hers 🙂
It’s time for something Polish. After finding a nice pancake’s recipe and having some mince meat in the freezer I decided that it is the time to make some croquettes. It is a special dish served pretty much on every party in my parent’s house, very often with a beet root soup.
