Cześć! Thank you for stopping by. Polonist is about…
POLAND’S VERY BEST FOOD.
Polish cuisine has often suffered the misfortune of being labelled as heavy and bland, even among Poles.
While this blog provides some great options for those cold winter evenings that demand rich comfort food, it also showcases a side of Polish cuisine that we don’t often consider – simple dishes, celebrating beautiful ingredients – perfect for spring and summer.
Here at the Polonist, I try out hundreds of Polish recipes including:

Who is Kasia? And how does she know this stuff?
I’m the voice, author, and scribbler behind Polonist. I live in Warsaw with my family who acts as my guinea pigs, tasting everything I make (fyi: no major complaints so far…).
Disclaimer: I’m not a chef! Just a self-taught home cook, who – through my own culinary experiments – wants to show you how to recreate Polish flavours at home, wherever that is.
I hope that my successes in the kitchen will inspire you, and my failures will keep you out of trouble (or make you laugh).
There are very few high quality resources about Polish food in English. My hope is that readers outside the Polish community will be able to experiment with the cuisine, ensuring the recipes are as accessible as possible.
Please note that English is not my native language, therefore you’re likely to stumble upon an error or two (or hundreds :-P). So if you see one – let me know, and I’ll fix it.
The metric system is more precise than imperial. Moreover, the sources of the recipes are Polish, and therefore originally in metric. For your convenience, I’ve added US imperial measurements next to each ingredient as well.

We’re spreading awareness and appreciation of Polish culture… through food :)
P.S. I absolutely LOVE seeing the food that you’re making.
