Hi, I am Chef Zara. In this post, I will guide you through the best Polish Cookbooks.

I love discovering new food and cooking with friends and family. One of the most common questions that I often get is for cookbook recommendations. I have created this guide for friends, family, and new friends alike. I hope that you enjoy our site.

Tradition and Intense Flavors

Poland has a rich history of court feasts and lavish monasteries resplendent with traditional dishes made from the land’s bounty: cheese, butter, berries, herbs, and game. Polish food is based on local ingredients such as pork, duck, mushrooms, cabbage, beetroot, and onion, combined and honed to perfection. Various kinds of noodles, grains, and cereals (rye, millet, wheat) also play an important role in Polish cookery. As for sweets, it is hard to imagine a more accommodating destination. For example, apple strudel, cream cakes, fruit-filled dumplings, and pancakes may make you skip the main course and jump straight to the main event. 

If you are partial to good home cooking, you have come to the right place.

So, let’s go on a tour of the 10 Best Polish Cookbooks!

Review 📖

This comprehensive guide to Polish cookery is complete with several dishes and recipes featured here. The Polish Cookbook is divided into the following sections: Breakfast Recipes, Soup Recipes, Main Dishes and Appetizers, and Condiments. 

Breakfast (Sniadanie) recipes make one wonder: do I feel sweet or savory this morning? From sweet Polish fluffy waffle, Polish apple pancake, Polish Babka bread (sweet, leavened bread), Baked Polish Paczki (Polish doughnuts) to savory Potato and kielbasa egg scramble, Polish stuffed egg, sausage with vegetables – the breakfast choices are vast and beyond one’s imagination. 

Most Polish meals start with one of Poland’s many soups. They range from clear broth to thick soup, so hearty it could be a meal. The best known is the beet soup called Borscht. The next chapter is dedicated to soups alone, and there are many to choose from: Polish beet soup, hearty potato, and cheese soup, Polish dill pickle soup, Tripe soup, Mushroom soup, and Polish kraut soup (make sure you stock up on that Polish kielbasa and sauerkraut). 

The main meal of the day is obiad served in the late afternoon. There are plenty of traditional Polish recipes that are featured here: Beer sausage, Goulash, Golabki (stuffed cabbage rolls), Polish smothered chicken, Polish pork roast with wine, different varieties of pierogi (filled with potatoes and cheese, Kielbasa and cabbage or sauerkraut and dried mushrooms), Kotler schabowy (thinly pounded pork loin cutlet coated in breadcrumbs), Beef roulade, Polish meatballs and famous Bigos (Polish Hunter’s stew).

What the Readers Are Saying 👂

“Love all those recipes” – Mary Karatka

Review 📖

This lovely Polish cookbook has been a favorite for three generations. For those that appreciate traditional and authentic Polish cooking, it preserves the unique qualities of Polish recipes while being very accessible to cooks who want to explore Eastern European food (check out our guide on the Best Czech Cookbooks). The author talks about eating time in Poland. “In the cities, the average working hours are from seven in the morning to three-thirty in the afternoon. Breakfast is served at six-thirty; lunch at eleven o’clock; dinner at three-thirty or four o’clock in the afternoon, and supper at seven-thirty o’clock in the evening”. “The Treasured Polish Recipes for Americans” has more than 500 recipes to choose from: Appetizers, the old favorite Bigos (often translated into English as Hunter’s stew, a Polish dish of chopped meat of various kinds stewed with sauerkraut and shredded fresh cabbage), Soups (hot and cold), Dairy dishes, Desserts, Fish, Poultry and Game, Pickles, Sauces, Meat, and Vegetables – the list of dishes presented here is quite extensive. 

About the Authors ✍️

Marie Sokolowski and Irene Jasinski are the authors of this cookbook which is dedicated to their American friends who in the enjoyment of Polish food encouraged them to publish the recipes and to the countless number of American cooks of Polish ancestry who remember Mother and Grandmother’s foods with nostalgia. An absolute must-have of a book. 


3. Polish Sausages, Authentic Recipes, and Instructions

Why We Love It ❤️

So what is kielbasa? The word kielbasa is Polish for sausage. Wide varieties of kielbasa have flavoring ingredients like marjoram, garlic, and juniper. Kielbasa can be baked, grilled, boiled, and cooked in other ways, and there are so many different recipes to explore. Kielbasa is a Polish sausage and an integral part of Poland’s cuisine and culture. In Poland, it refers to all sausages. And by the way, each region in Poland has its signature sausage! They are made from veal, pork, beef, and chicken. It all boils down to one fact: sausage is a staple of Polish cuisine. 

This book is perfect for anyone who intends to make Polish sausages or any kind of sausage. Even Polish butchers that make sausages all over the world make this book a point of reference. It is very scientific and appeals to the general public interested in sausage making or those in the “sausage trade.”

What the Readers Are Saying 👂

“Excellent kielbasa so far. Well written book, very clear and precise” – Peter Stephenson

Review 📖

This is a professional cookbook that is quite technical. The introduction covers the following topics: why did the Polish government regulate sausages, why did we make better sausages before, the glory years of Polish sausages, and the history of sausages. Chapter One focuses on the importance of the Christmas and Easter holidays, the history of sausages (the Middle Ages), the glory years of Polish sausages, the European certificates of origin, and the mystery of Polish sausages. Chapter Two discusses meat selection, curing, methods, and the difference between American and European curing techniques. Keep reading about European food (check out our guide on the Best Maltese Cookbooks).

Food safety is covered in Chapter Three, followed by Polish sausage classifications and, finally, authentic Polish sausage recipes. The book also has separate chapters on smoked emulsified sausages, fermented sausages, fresh sausages, liver sausages, and blood sausages. It also covers practical sausage making and old sausage recipes. This book represents over 500 years of sausage making and most Polish sausage recipes. These are time-proven recipes compiled, checked, and enforced by the Polish Government Standards as applied to making meat products after World War II. The book contains carefully compiled government recipes used by Polish meat plants between 1950-1990. These recipes were written by the best professionals in the meat industry in the country. 

About the Authors ✍️

“Polish sausages, Authentic recipes and Instructions” is a collaboration between three authors: Stanley Marianski, Adam Marianski, and Miroslaw Gebarowski. Stanley was born in Poland and left the country at the age of twenty to start the never-ending voyages that took him to Argentina, Chile, South Africa, and all of Europe before settling in 1979 in the USA. This lifestyle helped him master six languages and also learn a variety of methods of food preparation. His son Adam runs the highly popular website dedicated to smoking eats and making sausages.

What the Readers Are Saying 👂

“A Pierogi Bible! A great publication to go with the pierogi mould that i ordered along with it. All sorts of pierogi recipes that are easy to follow” – Mrs. H. V. Minor

Review 📖

Pierogi (plural of pierog) is one of the most prominent and recognizable Polish foods. These half-circular dumplings are usually made from unleavened dough and are stuffed with various tasty fillings. These fillings include cheese, cabbage, sauerkraut, mushrooms, spinach, ground beef, potatoes, legumes, and grains. The possibilities are endless when it comes to fillings – from sweet to spicy! Pierogi is Poland’s national dish and is enjoyed year-round by all ages. Pierogi have been made in Poland since the 13th of century. 

Despite the numerous legends about the origins of pierogi, it is known that they were introduced in the United States at the onset of the Great Depression. Pierogi were originally a family food among immigrants and served in ethnic restaurants. The first documented sale of pierogi was in May 1928. By the 1960s, pierogi had become a common supermarket item in many parts of the United States and Canada. But nothing beats traditional, homemade pierogi, of course. 

The “Perfect Pierogi Recipes” cookbook is a fabulous find where readers learn about different varieties of this fluffy deliciousness. 

The cookbook has a comprehensive introduction that covers a brief history of pierogi, moving to a more technical part on how to cut, stuff, and seal them, which is an art in itself. There are several ways to make pierogi: boil, sauté and bake. There is a chapter on how to freeze pierogi which is very convenient when trying to whip up a tasty dinner in minutes. There are different dough recipes for pierogi (butter, cream cheese, yeast, sour cream, egg-free, and wheat), each worth trying. The book’s last section is dedicated to sauces: basil cheese sauce, sour cream chive sauce, lemon sauce, strawberry sauce, and more. 

About the Author✍️

Final Thoughts

The Roman Catholic rituals of feasting and fasting were introduced to Poland around A.D.900, strongly influencing Polish food traditions. No meat is eaten during the fasts, so many meatless and fish dishes have become a part of Polish cooking. 

Poland is in central Europe and has several neighbors: Russia, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Germany (check out our guide to Best German Cookbooks). Poland is the ninth largest country in all of Europe. Polish cuisine has evolved over the centuries to become very eclectic due to Poland’s history, and it shares many similarities with other regional cuisines.
