I just heard something how Poland is looking at becoming a major producer for kosher/halal meats because there is such a huge market for it. When that happens I will surely stop eating meat.
Well, as someone pointed out earlier, just because an area can or has produced good recipes, doesn't mean there aren't those out there making poor food choices. Whether you are in Provence, Gdansk or Seattle, there is cuisine, good or bad according to taste. I enjoy a couple of restaurants here but have seen little that is new or different from elsewhere and that has been less than inspiring.
From an economic viewpoint, Poland may be making a good decision to supply halal meats to the growing Muslim segment of the European population. From the standpoint of cuisine though, halal meats never bowled me over. While I had a couple of excellent food dishes in the Middle East, the only meat that impressed me was the lamb. A couple of folks have told me the lamb here s excellent as well but we shall see.
I'm still looking for a Polish kitchen which will impress me but.........
