I'm interested not only in standard Polish cuisine cookbooks but in specialty cookbooks, as well. The local bookstores may have one or two, but I never know if they offer the best of the bunch. Recommendations appreciated. Indeed, I'd appreciate recommendations of good cookbooks in Polish as an incentive to learn the language.

the polish language polish cook book is: kuchnia polska

i have a book in english (w/ english measurments) and it's very very good. mine is an old printing and has all the good old stuff. it is: amazon.com/Art-Polish-Cooking-Alina-Zeranska/dp/0882897098 - the art of polish cooking by Alina Żerańska.

I thank all of my respondents. I will now seek to track down some of the books.

I'll give you a review of Marzenna Kuprzyczka's book when I get it. I also have another one that I can recommend but it isn't entirely Polish. I'll state it if anyone is interested.
