Moreover, to Polish Americans, food is a cause for sharing, celebration and for honoring tradition. As such, this title turns a spotlight on 36 Polish-American restaurants and families who opened up their kitchens to share delectable recipes. Written by Joseph W. Zurawski, an expert on the Polish-American experience, Polish Chicago: Our History, Our Recipes is a handsome, 240-page, hardbound volume containing 720 rare historical photographs and exquisite food photographs.
