My ex bought me some Polish chocolates once. I forget the name but it was like Wanilla Kasia or something. They were like little Milky-Ways but with a weird slimy/fluffy vanilla filling and they weighed a bloody tonne!! Loved 'em though! :)

LondonChick:
I really don't like that jelly stuff on the pork - there is nothing nice about that.

yeah i know what you mean, i think part of it is not knowing exactly what your putting in your mouth!!!

You can say the same about English sausages and pies :-)

What about home-made pies or sausages from a reputable butcher? Are they not English?

The butcher I go to (when I can afford to) sells excellent quality meat and sausages, whether you're cooking English, Polish, Italian or Vietnamese food.

Not many of these reputable butchers left. Mainly it is mass-production for Tesco, Asda.....

I went to Horncastle few weeks ago (old traditional,very English town) and bought few sausage rolls there- a bit shock comparing to tesco- there was really meat in them not lots of crap and fat.

Yes, please..... I'm surprised that there aren't more Polish restaurants in London. Kind of like a Brick Lane for Polish food - but with decent, well-prepared food and without agressive touts trying to reel you in with freebies that you always end up paying for, and drunken city boys pissing on the tables :(

Pig.

Taste changes every 7 years. I used to hate it too, but now I deem it delicious. I don`t eat it too often cause it`s very peppery.

I shall try it again in another 6 years and 10 months then! I can imagine it's quite nice on a cold winter's day...

Polish food:)
REMEMBER!!!!!!
People in Poland hate redy meals!!!!!!!!
Its is almoust imposible to buy ready dinner in polish shop like potatos and some meat in gravy!!! Some companies trying to enter on the market but they are losing!!!

If u was in Polad then probably u have been eating in some restaurant where food is from cans or jars so the chance thats it will be good are small. Every meal can be prepared in a diferent way.

Its is not that easy to tray something, u have to know where and what.
There is so many meals that i hate and i will not take to my mouth even milions are saying that is wonderfull.
Bigos - what kind have u try, what meat was inside, gulasz - home made only, golabki - piece of **** for me but few times i liked it, schabowy - i used to like it but now i love chicken version :) breded chcicken breast, golonka - just kill me i dont try it ,flaki - o God:(:(:( how people can eat this , ozorek (tongue) - no way,

bułka z pieczarkami - cool!!! bread roll with mushrooms and onions and ketchup:)
kebab - only those from my favourite place:) in Gorzow Wlkp that one i tried in Krakow i throw out!!!:)...u can make fortune in one year selling kebabs from Gorzow in London:) there is so big diference between british one and that polish one

vegetables:) cucumber with sweet n sour cream plus sugar pepper and salt:) realy good for something extra for your dinner
betroot with horseradish, nice but if u eat this in with proper meals
sauercrant mmmmmmmmmmmmm:)
pierogi:) ruskie, z serem:) ...rusian or with cottage cheese:)

if someone think that polish dinner is a lot of bits of nothing then hmmm u wrong
maybe chips and fish thats a big somethink!! ha junk food
in poland people r preparing big dinners from that bits...
maybe somethink may be "junk food" but u have always healthy food on the second plate
sometimes there is so much that i cant decide what to choose so i take everything and then im laying on sofa for hour beacuse im so full:)

unhealthy not always and not everything
US and British food is on the first place of most unhealthy food in the whole world!!!and untasty too:)!!!
i dont know if someone notice that some products like Helmanz mayonnaise/ketchup is diferent in britain and in poland but it shoud be the same.

soon im going to poland for a week and i cant wait the food that is waiting for me:):):):):)

remember!!!
ask someone for advise if somethink is good and then try it;
and try to find some place where they serve tasty meals each place offer diferent meals
if u want to buy something in jar chose only realy good brand but u have to ask someone to show u what to chose:)

I am a Brit and think that Polish food is tasty. It's getting a bit colder and Polish food is just the job. It's true that they don't like ready meals. Brits use microwaves more and love stuff like canneloni and lasagne. The Poles prefer more modest dishes with garnishings like cabbage and coleslaw.

Sorry your whole post, from what I can read doesnt make any sense, If you are English then may I suggest you go back to school and learn how to write??

Maybe theres some restaurants that you havent been too?

o yes, you grow but later you sell canned: potatoes, carrots, peas,tomatoes,
sweatcorns .....

I was bit shocked by canned potatoes- is it so difficult just to boil fresh ones?

British cusine isn`t all it`s boiled up to be...hahaha

Scots eat similar food so I'm sure many like bigos and gołąbki. I haven't eaten pierogi for quite a while but autumn is upon us.
