A stylish recipe book that celebrates the delights of Polish cuisine and vodka. Borsch, Vodka & Tears—a tucked-away Polish-style vodka bar and restaurant in Melbourne—has earned a dedicated following. The menus are filled with unpronounceable words, the worn tables and fittings are hand carved and built from Polish hardwood and slabs of stone, and the strange posters on the wall are the works of Polish artists and promote theater shows, ballet, and opera. If your drink of choice doesn’t have vodka in it, chances are they won’t have it. Borsch, Vodka & Tears celebrates the passion, the delights, and the comforts of Polish food and vodka. Split into three chapters: Tears is the restaurant’s colorful history; Vodka is a definitive guide to Polish vodkas, including vodka tasting notes, the restaurant’s most popular cocktail recipes, and how to match vodka with food; and Borsch features warming Polish classic recipes such as cabbage rolls, blintzes, and beetroot soup, as well as modern dishes, desserts, and sharing plates. Edgy photography, a comprehensive vodka guide, and delicious recipes make Borsch, Vodka & Tears unique and an instant classic!
