Culinary and vintage cookbooks.

Recent years have brought an increase in interest in the widely understood cuisine. You can talk about a peculiar fashion for cooking, which contributed not only to popular TV culinary programs, reality shows with the participation of celebrity chefs or kitchen revolutions, but also an increase in awareness and culinary needs of the society, as well as a change in lifestyle. To put it bluntly: we no longer enjoy the pork chop with fried cabbage, we want to eat not only healthy, but tasty and exquisite.
A natural consequence of this state of affairs is the increased interest in traditional Polish cuisine.

Poles more and more often reach for pre-war cookbooks in search of sophisticated dishes, and there is a lot to choose from: Old Polish crayfish, duck with apples, venison - as described by Adam Mickiewicz in "Pan Tadeusz" - prepared, of course, according to a traditional recipe and many other unique dishes.
Until recently, old cookbooks were the domain of enthusiasts or bibliophiles. When the publishers got a taste of the deal, a lot of reprints appeared on the market, the so-called reprints from the culinary library of our ancestors. We can also find a lot about traditional cuisine on various blogs.
Among the cooking textbooks it is worth mentioning: "Kucharza perfect" Wielądki, a Polish old print from 1786, "365 dinners" by Ćwierczakiewiczówna from 1865 [and its subsequent editions, and there were plenty of them] and her "The only practical recipes for preserves, liqueurs, marinades and cakes etc. "," Practical Warsaw cook "," Polish cuisine "by Gałecka-Kulzowa," Vegetarian cuisine "by Czarnota - presenting recipes for vegetarians; "The newest refined and farm kitchen" by Norkowska, "Kucharka Lithuanian" by Zawadzka, published in the mid-nineteenth century and also reissued many times. Before the war, there were plenty of cookbooks, even more recipes, although these also sometimes duplicate.
Our online antiquarian bookstore invites you to enrich your collection with original cookbooks and their reprints.
