Polish Food

Food is a delicious thing and is very essential to life. Food is one of the things that help you stay alive all of anyone's life. There are many different kinds of food all across the world. For example, Italian, Japanese, American, etc. Everyone likes different types of food. I am going to talk about one type of food that has influenced America and parts of the world. This food topic will be coming from a place called Poland in Europe.

Polish people have many types of food like desserts and main courses. However, there is a history to Polish food. During the middle ages, the Polish liked to use meat a lot. That and cereal was their main ingredients in most of their dishes. If you were to look at the Polish cuisine, there would be a lot of foods with meat, especially beef, in them. And during the Renaissance period, the Italian queen, Queen Bona, and many Italian cooks came to Poland, and during that time, vegetables were used more.

There are many types of foods from Poland that you may have not known originated from Poland. There is one very good type of food that is very popular in America and in the world and it is called a bagel. A bagel is a type of dough that is the shape of a circle with another circle in the middle. Bagels have a total of 245 calories per bagel. There are many types of things you can put on a bagel. you can put cream cheese, nutella, salmon, etc. Bagels are admired all over the world.

Sernik is a very popular dessert in Poland. Sernik is cheesecake but with the Polish name. Many people love cheesecake and the recipe is simple. The ingredients are flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, butter, eggs and sour cream. The instructions are preheat oven 350 degrees, mix first four ingredients and add eggs and sour cream until it becomes a ball. Flour sides of a pan and pour mixture into pan. For the filling, beat egg yolks till stiff and set aside. Beat egg yolks, sugar and vanilla till light and fluffy. In a food processor, place butter, potatoes, cheese, nutmeg, salt, limoncello, and orange zest. Add to yolk mixture and incorporate, pour onto crust, and bake for 45-50 minutes. Then let cool.

Polish food is very important because if there wasn't Polish food, some foods wouldn't be around.
