Enjoy your "Polishness".
I really do. Therefore, I don`t visit British fora and complain that Brits don`t eat this or that. That would be so moronic. Do you get the point?
Don't you teach your students that there is a big wide world out there?
Yes, I do it. That is why, when they go to Britain, they won`t moan that Brits don`t eat this or that. :):) Do you get the point, Mr Expert on Polish Culture? hahaha
many (most?) Poles treat raw onions with suspicion, they can be used in small amounts in some salads
You are probably right, with one noble exception, namely me, who has eaten raw onion regularly and my liver is still doing well. It isn`t raw onion which is harmful, but fried one. Unfortunately, I also like it.
I'm also surprised that Polish people don't pickle eggs.
Admit now that you are mentioning them to make me puke again. :):)
I already talked about pickled eggs when linking to the film by that expat Polish chef. Pickled eggs are No 1 of most disgusting food in Britain on his list and he throws up the longest and heaviest of all after trying them.
