Medievieal chronicals describe polish cuisine as rather fat but also very various. Characteristic element since the beginning was pork and wild animals. We often ate baked pork as a whole one which is famous still on special occasions or pork knuckle. Porknuckle is still popular especially in the south of country. First potatoes came to Poland in the end of XVII so before we ate meat with groats. Polish vodka brands like Wyborowa or Soplica are famous all over the world. Everybody think that vodka is typical polish or russian alcohol drink. The true is it came to Poland in XV century from Germany. At early Middle Ages typical drinks were honeywine and beer. Honeywine was important part of pagan ceremonies before Poland was baptized. Famous non – alcoholic drink in Poland and East Europe was and still is bread acid which we obtain from fermented bread. Of course polish cuisine are not only meat dishes. In the north west region of Poland called Pommerania you can try many kinds of fish like raw herring or smoked eel. Traditional polish dessert is poppy seed cake which served always on a Christmas Eve. During the carnival we often eat donats. Those with rose jam are typical warsaw speciality..
