I was wondering for the last half a year what shall I start with on CookINPolish:) What people who do not know polish cuisine would like the most. So I decided to ask. I have carried out the survey in the cooking group on facebook. I asked about favorite dish in polish traditional and regional cuisine.

People in Poland like ‘Russian’ dumplings the most, which are dumplings with potatoes and fried onion.

I believe you may like ‘Russian’ dumplings as well, so it seems like the first blogging challenge for me:)
