In Poland it's traditionally served when King Polkagamon comes to lunch.

Polish parents had to revive the tradition because of him lol

I wonder if zuba rybna (fish soup) enthusiasts would like Cullen Skink, a Scottish soup
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cullen_Skink

A good bowl of Cullen Skink after a round of golf at SSS 63 (par 67) Cullen is just the job. It's best made where the name is, like the Żywiec in Żywiec I found. Does Poland have a hearty/warming soup like this after a game of golf? The kind that you are itching to get to after a long and gruelling round in slightly cold temperatures.

Czernina is a true gourmet treat. No-one has ever made it like my late Babcia (God rest her soul) once did. There's only about 1-2 cups duck blood per big pot of soup. Some US-born Pol-Am kids woud call it chocolate soup with bullets (the latter being potato dumplings). It is choclatey in appearance with a rich, deep, winey, sweet-sour flavour and fruity undertones or (for those who use lots of prunes, dried apples, pears, raisins, etc.) overtones. Niebo w gębie (heaven to the palate)!

Delicious - and the dried fruit really lifts it.

Wodzonka is delicious :)

You heat up a litre of water (not quite to the boil) and then throw in 2 stock cubes (rosół z kury). Wait til they dissolve, then add some curry powder (this is my idea, not typical) and some ground pepper (best crush the balls yourself). After you mix these ingredients together, add a head worth of crushed garlic (finely cut) and 3 slices of bread, torn up into smaller pieces. Keep on a moderate heat setting for around 2 mins and voila! Pycha!

That's the one :) Thanks for the correction, pgtx :) :) Maybe one day I will get the spelling right :)

It's a great soup for next to no money. I'd love a cream of chicken soup here but Poland doesn't seem to have that one. Scots and Poles really make some of the best soups in the world. We are joint world champions! :) :)

However, the best soup in the world, IMHO, is clam chowder and it's neither Scottish nor Polish.

Nah, not if you eat soups you won't be :)

I know Poland has a broad range of soups but I tend to see rosół (broth) all too often. I'm not complaining as I like it :)

easteuropeanfood.about.com/od/polishsoups/Polish_Soup_Recipes.htm

these are just some of the tasty soups on offer.

I had some botwinka (botwina) 10 mins ago. Very tasty indeed! I can't translate it into English. It had potatoes, meatballs, carrots and strips of sth or other.

Can any resident Pole translate the name of this soup?

Beetgreen soup? (Actually some beetroot must also be added beacuse the greenish tops alone do not produce that ncie pink hue.)

I like my rosol enough too. But it serves as a great base for other soups. One of the favourites with the kids is to throw in a tin of tomato paste, along with a bunch of elbow noodles, and make a tomato soup. But you gotta make sure there are some decent onion chunks to give it a bit of variety. BTW, I like being the lucky one who gets the bay leaf in my bowl.

I am trying to surprise my husband and in-laws by making a soup that they always talk about, the recipe died with my husbands grandmother...her sister is still alive, but she's not all there anymore. A member mentioned it earlier, my mother inlaw believes its spelled kvos? It had ham bone that was simmered down, prunes, tomato, apple and dumplings? Hubby says that it looks disgusting but tastes like heaven. I would love to try to recreate this dish for him and his memories. Does anyone have a recipe? Please e-mail, hellishkatus@yahoo. THANK YOU! Kate

Sorry, I really don't get Polish soups. They are all too thin and seem to me to taste exactly of their ingredients and nothing more. For me soups should be more then the sum of their parts. And should be thicker - although I understand that this is regarded as soup for sick people or children in Poland for some reason?

To me Polish "soup" is actually not soup, but broth - which is different.

Are there any thicker soups in Poland?

Most of them, if done properly. Barszcz ukrainski (not czysty, made with white beet, potatoes, carrots, parsnips, the lot), krupnik (usually thickened up with buckwheat). The list goes on.

But the really good stuff is never to be found in a restaurant or milk bar. Ask your missus or her Mum, that's a whole other culinary universe.

My grandmother also made a soup that was pink in color and she called it foss. Problem is I don't have recipe. She also through in homemade noodles which were amazing. I have been searching for the recipe for years, do you have one?

Best, Jen
