Why not just cook food you know people will like? Try home made salmon fish cakes as a fish alternative to carp - do a classy buffet style - do whatever your family like sweetie xx

Ahhhh yes I meant traditional by my fam which only my dad is part Polish so they just make what they like LOL. Yes thats why we have salmon also, but I would like to keep it to a real Polish dinner this year, so no meat at all right ehhhh

Doesnt matter i'm the only picky eater LOL We usually just do grilled salmon, But I wanna do Polish recipes. So they will like anything I make. But I dont know many polish recipes, and we Americanize any of the Polish things my mom makes. So I want the real recipes, we once did Polish bread that took 2 days to make, like that was fun.

Mazurek makowo- kokosowy

I associate mazurki more with Easter than Christmas, but there's usually something with poppy-seed on Christmas Eve supper so why not (although I'm not a big fan of poppy-seed tbh, but that's me).

Krusciki

They're called faworki in my region and yesssss, I worship them (at least those made by my grandma ;d)!!! xD <3 Niebo w gębie :D

I made Karpatka a few weeks ago that was pretty good, i'm sure my parents and fam would like it also.

I recommend adding jelly cubes to the cream (for example strawberry or cherry flavoured) :)

Lemon Blueberry Pierogi

I've never tasted such a mix, so I don't know whether they are going to be good or not :)

I would love to try making some piergoi from scratch is this hard, does anyone know.

I wouldn't say they're difficult to make, you can check how they're made on Youtube:



Kutia

Kutia is more an Eastern thing, I guess (Ukrainian, Russian, etc.), but it is eaten in some regions of Poland. I don't think I've ever eaten it and it doesn't sound too encouraging, tbh :P If you want to make it with wheat grains then you'll have to play Cinderella and peel every grain seperately, from what I've read ;O

Basically, dishes vary from region to region, from family to family.

There are supposed to be 12 dishes and usually there have to be some dishes that contain poppy-seed, mushrooms, honey, sauerkraut, to make it traditional.
Fish dishes are the only meat dishes served at Christmas Eve.

The Christmas dishes I personally like are:

1. Barszcz czerwony z uszkami - borscht with uszka (uszka are sth similar to pierogi, with a filling made of sauerkraut and mushrooms), it's a beetroot soup (and my favourite soup in general).

youtube.com/watch?v=I_yE5F93XOc

2. The fish dish (lol) I love is śledzie w oleju z cebulą - herring fillets in oil with onion:

gotujmy.pl/sledzie-w-oleju-z-cebula,przepisy-sledz-przepis,52089.html

3. I also like the all time classic sałatka jarzynowa - vegetable slalad with mayo and mustard (I think Russians have it too and eat it at New Year's Eve, if I'm not mistaken):

ugotuj.to/ugotuj/62133982/tradycyjna+salatka+jarzynowa+z+majonezem/p/

As for cakes, there's always some cheescakes, charlotte cakes and all kinds of other cakes with cream or without cream.
Everybody loves karpatka in my family, also everone knows murzynek in Poland:

wizaz.pl/kulinaria/przepis,2037,murzynek-prosciutki-i-pyszny

I also like pleśniak (known as "fuga" in my family). Apparently recipes for it are circulating on Italian blogs and forums as "torta slava" (Slavic cake) lol

everycakeyoubake.blogspot.com/2008/03/dzie-kobiet-pleniak.html

Miodownik (honey cake) is also a nice cake for Christmas.

Sorry, wrong links lol
This is a recipe for miodownik :):
domowe-wypieki.pl/przepisy-ciasta-miodowe/495-przepis-na-miodownik-z-masa-budyniowa

Btw, miodownik should be eaten two, three days after baking, because the cake is softer then.

I just saw this pic and well it looks cool. Yeah im not a poppy seed fan either never had them.

Niebo w gębie

They look SOOO GOOD i'll deff have to try these, wanna share the recipe :P LOL cukier wysoki jednak wiele LOL

I've never tasted such a mix, so I don't know whether they are going to be good or not :)

Figured my parents would like it, lol idk i'm just a potato filling pierogi kinda girl lol

I recommend adding jelly cubes to the cream (for example strawberry

Strawberry yes, but should this be the dessert I make or is something else better?

Kutia

I think it looks nasty, never something I would try lol, I'll skip it no way im hand peeling grains LOL

1. Barszcz czerwony z uszkami - borscht with uszka (uszka are sth similar to pierogi, with a filling made of sauerkraut and mushrooms), it's a beetroot soup (and my favourite soup in general).

I love Barszcz we always have it but the addition of dumplings sounds great although i've never had mushrooms or sauerkraut before, the Chinese dumplings I tried a few weeks ago are alright.

2. The fish dish (lol) I love is śledzie w oleju z cebulą - herring fillets in oil with onion:

Herring hmmm never had it, does it taste kinda like swordfish looks kinda like it?? It looks good, but would it be weird to have something like swordfish or chilian sea bass??? We usually do salmon.

3. I also like the all time classic sałatka jarzynowa

NASTY LOL but my parents would so love it, so i'll add it

As for cakes, there's always some cheescakes, charlotte cakes and all kinds of other cakes with cream or without cream.
Everybody loves karpatka in my family, also everone knows murzynek in Poland:

Apart form Christmas Even Dinner being big in Poland there is traditional Polish Christmas Day Dinner:
Roast goose with red cabbage and potatoes,

That's a German custom for St. Martin's Day (Nov. 11), and it's not practiced widely in Poland except in and near Poznań. In Germany, the custom has now spread or been transferred to Christmas Day, as well. MAYBE some Polish families eat goose on Christmas day, but it is not by any means a widespread tradition, at least nowadays. Poles are not big goose eaters, by and large, and the overwhelming bulk of geese raised in Poland end up on the German market (87% in 2010), with the overwhelming bulk of the rest ending up in other western countries like Holland, Belgium, Denmark and the UK. The livers end up in France.

I know this is a little late, but I just got on here today. Our Polish tradition for our Polish Christmas Eve Wigelia dinner was Mushroom Soup made from dried mushrooms form Poland, a mild white fish broiled in a pan in the oven with butter & lemon, non-meat pirogues with sautéed onions & sour cream, Sauerkraut sautéed with onions, mushrooms & caraway seed. And for desert, usually a poppyseed yeast dough cookan. (Don't know what it was called) We would take the wafers at the beginning of the meal and go around the table blessing each other as we shared a bit of the wafer with each other. Lovely tradition! Then we would all go off to Midnight Mass.

Hmm, I visited Warsaw, Poland, a dozen times within the last 10 years and never heard of/seen such a dish. Also in other Polish cities. Are you sure you are talking about Warsaw, Poland? Because there are a few other Warsaws in the world......

Yes, Warsaw Poland.

Suya is an awesome and popular dish among Poles of colour and our organized social justice allies who practice diversity, tolerance, inclusion and respect.

I wouldn't expect any nationalists or crypto-nationalists to know this. Or to know what's really going on in the Polish capital and how much it has permanently changed demographically and for the better over the past 10 years.

That's Okay though. Nationalists and crypto-nationalists only march through Warsaw with flags and flares a couple times a year for a few hours and then head straight back home to their villages before it gets too dark.

But where Warsaw leads, the rest of Poland follows!

So don't be stranger. Warsaw loves tourists like you. Come back sometime soon and enjoy the suya! Tell 'em Shitonya sent ya!

Poles of colour?

Oh yeah,your colour.
The more I think about your handle and the more I read your posts I get a real Australian feel from them....a black Australian feel...

Oh, I see. I didn`t know because I don`t meet them too often. Perhaps that`s because I rarely leave my village.

Tell 'em Shitonya sent ya!

I will surely will. :)
