Product Description


"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

Borsch, Vodka & Tears is a unique vodka cocktail and Polish recipe book that celebrates classic and modern cocktails and dishes from Eastern Europe. It is the only book in the market that provides comprehensive vodka-tasting notes and suggestions for matching different vodkas with delicious and hearty food. Borsch, Vodka & Tears is the perfect cocktail and recipe book for anyone with a love (or curiosity about) Polish cuisine, cocktails and the varied vodkas from this region.” ~ecookbooks.com

The recipes are delicious, appear to have been well-tested, and the writing is excellent. The recipe blurbs in particular were enjoyable. Definitely try the dill pickle soup - it will change your life.

If you have Polish heritage, this book is for you. It has all the recipies that my mother made for me, plus a few more. It gives clues to polish culture and why vodka is part of that culture.

Awesome cookbook for beginners in Polish cuisine. Love the drink sections too, although most of the vodkas are tough to get.
