Description
 
Exiles from communist-controlled Poland, Hanka and Jan Sawka landed in New York City in 1978 with 52 dollars, a few suitcases, and a toddler. In this moving account of their journey from behind the Iron Curtain to a new life in the U.S., Hanka Sawka emerges as her artist husband's soul mate and partner. Their home, in good times and bad, became a gathering place for fellow artists and friends, and her reputation as a talented home cook grew.  This is the touching story of the wife of one of the greatest Polish poster artists of the 20th century. It is the story of growing up in Poland during the 1960's and 70's, the struggles of living there and the couples eventual exit to the West.  Interspersed throughout the book is a collection of the best of Hanka's recipes, including Polish classics such as Borscht, Pierogi, Paczki and Bigos, along with Christmas and Easter specialties.
Much like Hanka's story, the book is colorful and visually striking. Featured are illustrations by Jan Sawka, along with family photographs and food photography from Hanka's kitchen. Readers interested in Polish culture and cuisine will enjoy this mix of history, personal narrative, and art.
