Polish Cheesecake with Strawberries

I am lucky to have birthday in June! I love this month, as strawberries are in full and best season, the cheapest and the most sweet. Polish Cheesecake with Strawberries is a must for me to take to the office for my colleagues:)

This time I prepared baked cheesecake, very easy to make, delicate and not very sweet. It take some time to finish it, as the jelly needs to settle, but this is a case of work organization. Make cheesecake one day before serving, it needs a night in a fridge to get the best of it.

I like to have lot of jelly on my cheesecake, I use double package of it and together with strawberries I add some blueberries, this is the best mix I know:)

Fresh Tomato Soup

Last days of summer and the beginning of autumn is a perfect time to cook Fresh Tomato Soup. In the middle of the season tomatoes are cheap and beautiful, there is a whole range of tomato species available. Remember to choose only the ripest pieces of your favorite tomatoes. They may be soft and not really best looking, but believe me, they will make delicious soup.

Check also winter version of Polish Tomato Soup with tomato concentrate. Believe me, it is also delicious:)

Chanterelle Cream Sauce

Last Saturday I found fresh forest chanterelles on a local farmers market. They are not cheap, they cost 60 PLN per 1 kg, which is more than 15 USD. However they are sooo good, that I couldn’t resist:) I was waiting the whole season to cook Chanterelle Cream Sauce.

I had some for delicious scramble eggs for breakfast.

For dinner I cooked cream sauce, which I served with grilled turkey breast, young potatoes and mizeria (cucumber salad). However you can have any nice piece of grilled or fried meat with chanterelle sauce: pork chop, beef steak or pork tenderloin. If you prefer to stick with veggie, potato dumplings, crepe and pasta would go very well with this sauce.

Polish Half Sour Cucumbers

Ogórki małosolne

This is a classic of Polish seasonal cuisine:) Fresh and healthy Polish half sour fermented cucumbers are easy to prepare and delicious. Once you try them – you’ll love them.

Małosolne often accompany vodka and herring with onion on old style meetings:) During PRL you were not supposed to buy only vodka in restaurants, you had to buy also some kind of appetizer, herring and pickled or fermented cucumbers were the most popular:)
