146 Sour Cucumber Soup

How to explain a liking for this rather acquired taste? For the 4-year-old me, zupa ogórkowa was synonymous with a treat: something I know I'll enjoy, and what is also nourishing and healthy. Or so I was told.

144 Wild Mushroom and Rice Cabbage Rolls

Gołąbki, as that's how cabbage rolls are called in Poland, are perfect comfort food for early spring: the green of the cabbage invokes freshness we all so crave at this time of the year, and the earthy, steaming hot filling gives comfort, much sought after on still-chilly early spring days.

142 Sweet Cottage Cheese Dumplings (Pierogi Leniwe)

It takes less than an hour to whip up these little cushion-like dumplings. Served with a bit of melted butter, some sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon, they are a foolproof mood lifter. At least for me.

141 Silesian Potato Dumplings (Kluski Śląskie)

Kluski śląskie are one of the foods that you either love or hate, but in this case, it's down not to the flavour, but texture. A bit gummy, a bit chewy, I have always thought of them as pretty fun: they are quite bouncy for a dumpling!

131 Tomato and Pasta Soup

Chunky, fresh, and very satisfying. This tomato soup with pasta is as comforting as summer gets.

126 Miso, Kale and Shiitake Soup with Noodles

Comforting, yet light soup with miso, kale and shiitake mushrooms. Quick summer lunch, perfect for a rainy day like today.

117 Ewa’s Legendary Kapuśniak (sauerkraut soup).

Most of us have a place we especially remember and cherish the memory of. Kamienica on Dietla Street in Krakow is (for me) the place where magic happens.

115 Thukpa, Tibetan Noodle Soup

Goodness in a bowl. This Tibetan soup is not only comforting, but also super healthy. I dare you to try!

113 Super-warming Pumpkin, Courgette and Lentil Curry

Survive the chilly November evenings with this super-warming pumpkin, courgette and red lentil curry.
