Description
 

The seasonal focus of this stunning memoir cookbook brings to life the food, festivals, and traditions of the long, cold winters spent through a rural Polish childhood. From St. Nicholas' Day to the vigil of Christmas Eve and the mid-winter revelry of a Sylwester New Year's Eve Ball, the touching story picks up where its predecessor, the award-winning Rose Petal Jam, leaves off. Featuring 47 new recipes, the lush design and lavish visuals provide inspiration and nostalgia along a winter journey that takes in the cities of Lublin, Warsaw, Kraków, and Lódz, as well as some of Europe's oldest forests and the frozen Mazury Lakes. Part armchair travel but mostly a sumptuous personal narrative enhanced by many well-known romantic paintings and poems, this glorious cookbook demonstrates a deep love for Poland on every page. Signed By The Authors.



About the Author



Beata Zatorska was born in Jelenia Gora in southwest Poland. She started her medical studies in Wroclaw but graduated from the University of Sydney, and now works as a family doctor in Australia. Her fascination with medicine began on long mountain walks with her grandmother - a professional chef who taught her the use of herbs and wildflowers in cooking and healing. Like many Poles who live away she has kept her country in her heart over the years. When she finally returned to Poland, the first thing she did was leap into a wild rose bush to smell the petals - the scent of her Polish childhood.



Simon Target was born in England, the son of renowned Australian painter Patricia Prentice, educated at Cambridge and is a filmmaker well known in Australia for his documentaries and food programs.
