"A truly unique book…and no doubt will take you on an adventurous journey through Polish cuisine, customs and of course the now world-famed drink, vodka. The latter part of the book is filled with recipes that are true to the Polish traditions. Ever since getting my hands on a copy of Borsch, Vodka and Tears I have not been able to put the book down. It is a thrilling read, recommended for anyone into food history. It is a unique story of connectedness of migrants through their food and custom, and a story of intermingling passions, fate and of course the most interesting insight into vodka, its etymology, history both in the East and West...Grab a copy of this fascinating book and immerse your self in a different world while you munch on a serving of these Polish Potato Pancakes.” ~Wholesome Cook
