Polish romantic dinner (suggestions)?


Mishu

Any suggestions for a Polish meal that I can conjure up for a romantic dinner with the wife (she is Polish)?

I haven't tried cooking any Polish meals, yet. Normally, my idea of a romantic dinner is to take her to a fancy restaurant. She doesn't really cook any Polish food, because I think she has been "Americanized" ... LOL. This fact translates to my unfamiliarity with Polish cuisine in general. I only remember flazcki, glompe (spelling?), bigos (spelling?), etc.

I wanted to get your thoughts on this matter.

Cook for her what she likes. Regardless of ethnic origin. Just making the effort should be romantic enough, but, just in case, have a local take-out place on speed dial! :-)

No matter what you make your wife for dinner, try spicing up the meal with something chocolate for desert. It's a wonderful aphrodisiac!

Merged: Polish romantic dinner.

I am Norwegian, and my boyfriend is Polish. He is in Poland now, but he will visit me soon.

I want to surprise him with a romantic dinner when he comes.

Can anyone send me a suggestion of a Polish dish I can make for him?

Thanks in advance.

Put a carp in your bath

The Poles appreciate fish. Just don't make him carp, it's for wigilia, a Xmas time dish.

Panga is popular, as is salmon. Some of the best salmon in the world is from Norway, and I say that as a Scot whose country also produces prime cuts of it.

Yeah, go with fish

I think about making him something out from cod, I bought fresh cod from one of my collegues, so I guess I will go for that,

not everyone likes it either, so best not to.

Carp is disgusting. I'm a fan of most fish, but carp is bland and filled with killer bones.

Not much romantic about that

We always threw them back if we caught one....but I read that the Chinese really like carp.

Koi carp are beautiful. I have a photo of them from Kamakura, Japan. They have sharp colours and are nice to watch. No, I'm not a stoner :)

I'm going to Norway on Tuesday, I like the Salmon, potatoes and veg best.
Fish balls or meat balls are also good, if he eats m,eat.

yes, he eats meat, and meat balls are really typical norwegian food, we call it our national meal.

On the table, put out a platter of slice kielbasa with mustard, butter,rye bread.
Delicious wine.

For dinner, make a couple of steaks, rice pilaf and have a salad,

For dessert you can make some apple fritters together, add powdered sugar.

He's been in Poland and has eaten enough Polish food.

Spend less time in the kitchen.

Yes and to think that they keep fish in the bathtub and then eat it. I would never eat anything coming from the bathroom. (reminds me of an old Seinfield episode)
