One of my sons is to bring a traditional food from the country of his choice. Any suggestions on a traditional Polish dish that's easy to prepare?

Merged: National dishes of Poland?

What are polish national dishes? Where in Krakow are they most delicious?

Bigos, or "hunter's stew" consists of pork sausage (kiełbasa) sliced, picked cabbage etc. and is perhaps the most iconically Polish dish with which your's truly's familiar:-)

I love the stuff, could eat heaping helpings of it (..washed down of course with a solid Polish beer such as Żywiec).

Bigos

Yes, yes and yes! Love me some Bigos!

Żywiec

If you are in a place selling good traditional Polish food and the only beer they have is Zywiec, walk away. It's the Polish equivalent of Carling or Tennants. You should be able to find a lot of places that serve much better beer.

Cutlet

Kotlet Schabowy may not be the national dish of Poland, but it's something so many Polish people that live outside of Poland miss. It's simple, delicious and pleases everyone.

Can I also suggest polish pancakes (naleśniki) with savoury fillings, really really tasty! Also if you are lucky enough to have a market in the square when you are there. Grab some grilled meatstuffs!

Oh and Golonka...I could go on!

Pizy can also be quite delicious, though not alone (in my humble opinion). I enjoy them as a side with a main dish of nice wędlina and kapusta!

After the meal digestive of choice?? Well, there's always a shot ot two of Żubrówka following dessert and some good strong coffee:-)

Gettin' myself famished here, he-he!!!!

wędlina

Mmmmm, my father in law smokes all his own meat and whenever we go over the house is full of meat...talk about meat sweats!

As I said, I offered my wife one of my pyza and she fell in love with Polish cooking too:-)
