Chicken Gizzard stew is one of the dishes my Grandma Emilka was cooking for us from time to time. I was used to it, as I had it from the early childhood, but some may even doubt that chicken gizzards are edible at all;) If you tried, you will probably find it tasty and nothing strange about the flavor. Actually Chicken gizzards stew was often served in our house on Sundays, so it was always considered special and tasty meal.
Housewives of communistic Poland did not have much choice, they bought what was available in stores. However it was not a reason to complain, our Grandmas were using their imagination, and – what is important for the environment, they were cooking zero waste 🙂
Liver and onion has its origins in Jewish cuisine. Jewish culture has been alive in Polish culture for centuries and has influenced also Polish cuisine. Polish Liver and Onion is one of the most popular ways of preparing the liver.

Either you love or hate it. Polish Tripe Soup – Flaki has lots of proponents and the same number of opponents:)
Several years ago it was a standard starter on weddings, nowadays you are usually faced with a choice: tripe soup or chicken soup (Rosół recipe).I always take Flaki! 🙂
For me using tripes, liver and other offal parts is a respect for the animal, that gave his life so that we could eat it. Some may say it is also in line with ‘zero waste’ trend that is getting more and more popular nowadays. I support it!
