Wild Honey and Rye: Modern Polish Recipes

Interlink. Jun. 2018. 208p. photos. index. ISBN 9781623719982. $30. COOKING
OrangeReviewStarFood writer and former criminal lawyer Behan debuts a refreshingly contemporary Polish cookbook, packed with appealing recipes that embrace modern and global influences. Dishes such as fruit souffle omelet, venison with roasted pumpkin and thyme puree, and plum and poppyseed cake are enhanced by a tidy layout and stylish color photographs. Suitable for cooks of all skill levels, the recipes include a number of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free choices. There's also an entire chapter dedicated to flavored vodkas.
VERDICT A treasury of traditional and modern Polish home cooking that will intrigue and challenge home cooks. However, the partial dust jacket won't survive heavy circulation.
