Polish meat in English supermarkets?

I have recently seen a type of meat (possibly meat spread) in supermarkets in England marketed for the Polish community. It comes in a small rectangular pack in gold foil. Can anyone tell me what this is and what it is used for?

Please read it and tell me if it says 'pasztet' on it. If so, it's pate. They like something akin to Brussels Pate and not Ardennes.

Yeah, that might be it. Tastes great spread on bread with tomato slices on it.

Hearing about this Polish meat spread reminds me of soemthing that happened at uni, i once helped a few of the Polish students on our course with their coursework and they both said they would bring me something back from Poland as a small thank you. Of course i said don't be stupid but two weeks later..........

One of them hands me a box of Polish chocolates, which was sweet of her really, her friend on the other hand gives me two packs of this Polish meat spread. One of them was just a plain flavour and the other had a touch of peppercorn about it.

I must say i loved the chocolates of course but the spread was also very nice, i used to spread it on bread for lunch!!!! I even asked her to get me some more when she returned to Poland again. Hearing that its in the UK now i think i'll look out for it, i can't remember the name of it though.

these tins always make me laugh:

99% of Poles I've met hate English food.

Even curry! ;)

Curry, LOL. Wrong continent ;) ;) We need a photo, sjmwaite. Or simply for you to read the label.

"I don't like this facking foreign muck, gimme some propa English food like pizza or curry"

Yeah, that does seem to be more of an English attitude. Us Scots tend to be more open to foreign food when we travel.

Curry is more popular in Scotland than in England :)

How much Polish food is the same stuff but with Polish writing on it? It's an easy way to make money out of people.

I cooked a curry that found its way very happily into a Polish stomach.

Us Scots tend to be more open to foreign food when we travel.

But I'm more open to foreign food than you, and you're Scottish and I'm English. Where does that leave everyone?

Yeah, our ancestors were beating living sh!te out of invading Turks (not always to be fair), but their szaszłyki were great invention.

I'd seriously doubt that, Osioł. It's possible but you'd have to really go some ;)

Smalec is lard, Greg. Still, I guess you counted those bacon bitties.

A gap in the market? Do you think the Poles would like it?

Well, they like tripe (flaki) so I guess so. It has a nice taste :)

I tried it once and must admit it wasn't too bad (haggis that is)

Haggis is fine but I can't stomach white or black puddings. Good for me as they are heart attacks on a plate.

I have successfully converted many Polish people to haggis and my campaign is not complete ;)

I know there is a Polish meat like haggis but I have completely forgotten the name of it...has anyone managed to buy that within the UK?

man who is probably feasting on a hot dog and chips.

Well, that's a culinary leap from lungs, heart, etc. of a sheep or calf, mixed with suet, seasoning, and oatmeal and boiled in the animal's stomach

A culinary leap? I think not. It's not even a sidewards step. Haggis is the stuff of legends!

Then they've been eating in the wrong places.

You can't beat a good old Sunday dinner or a full English breakfast.

Roast - lovely with no gravy :)
Breakfast - Yummy with no english sausages :)
Plus why choose when you can have the best of both worlds ??? :)

Gotta have your gravy ;-)

And your sausages !

Why indeed, but Jihozapad saying that 99% of the Polish people he knows hates English food seemed very high.
