New York Times story on Zupa ogórkowa

The NYT cooking section has a story about zupa ogórkowa... but what went wrong? The picture they have doesn't look remotely like ogórkowa. It's the wrong color and there's no ogórki visible and the dill is sprinkled on top rather than in the soup).

I'm neither Polish nor Italian but now I know how Italians feel at bowdlerized versions of their food in different countries (like pineapple on pizza).

It looks like kartoflanka - potato soup. Or veg soup.
Those NYT journalists know little about Poland. They are mental losers. I still remember how they intentionally used that Polish death camp phrase. Several times. Let them idi na huj.

(like pineapple on pizza)

Our fav.

But your analogy to pizza is a bit wrong. With or without pineapple, it is still pizza. With soups it is different - potato soup certainly isn`t pickled cucumber soup (which is greenish and contains pieces of grated/chopped pickle).

That's a matter of opinion...

potato soup certainly isn`t pickled cucumber soup

When I make it it's usually on leftover chicken soup*, cut up some potatoes (I'm too lazy to grate ogórki so I get it already grated), fresh dill and sour cream and good to go...

*I never put noodles in chicken soup, I prepare those separately and combine them in the bowl...

Nah!
Pineapple on pizza is a complete no no.
In fact American pizzas, are mainly no no's.
Italian is the only way to go, thin and crispy.

Its called a Hawaiian and youre right , it sucks.

In fact American pizzas, are mainly no no's.

A 1000x better than any pizza in England, come on. The worst thing I ate in York was a Burrito! I couldnt believe they attempted to make Mexican food. Taco Bell is even better.

Italian is the only way to go, thin and crispy.

Like in Chicago but you can get deep dish or stuffed as well, which you never had. When you come here I will show you and Polock food too.

n York

Mate, York is a nice city but hardly the gastronomic capital of the UK.
That would be London.
And if you come here I will show you some of the best restaurants in the world.
And yeah, some of them do amazing pizzas.

I might take you up on that someday!

Speaking of Zupa. There is a Polish deli I know of and it has about 15 different types of homemade soup. I usually buy the Rosil (sp) and dunk my grilled cheese sandwiches into it.

The New York Times is an untrustworthy left wing rag.
Ignore.

I don't use sour cream with it but do usually add potato. Some versions don't. My OH adds buttermilk after cooking.

York is a nice city but hardly the gastronomic capital of the UK.

A lot of the restaurants there, especially in the centre, are tourist traps. If you walk half a mile into the suburbs, there's much nicer food, especially around the Bishy road.

That would be London.

Leeds and Manchester do pretty well, especially Leeds which is only 22 miles from York.
