From St. Nicholas' Day to the vigil of Christmas Eve and the mid-winter revelry of a Sylwester New Year's Eve Ball, the touching story picks up where its predecessor, the award-winning Rose Petal Jam, leaves off.

Like sipping a cup of tea in a cozy kitchen as you watch the snow fall outside... 26 octobre 2013
Par Bundtlust - Publié sur
Format: Relié
My grandmother's family immigrated from Poland in 1913, and though my grandmother was raised in the United States, she preserved certain Polish traditions at home. I grew up with homemade Polish dishes such as pierogi, golabki, barszcz bialy, and a variety of yeast breads and pastries with farmer's cheese, poppyseeds, and fruit. Unfortunately, babcia did not write down many of her Polish recipes. Last year, I was looking for authentic Polish cookbooks that would capture some of her homestyle Polish cooking and stumbled upon the beautiful Rose Petal Jam: Recipes and Stories from a Summer in Poland, so I was very excited to see that "Sugared Orange" was coming out.

"Sugared Orange: Recipes and Stories from a Winter in Poland," is the second in a series of four books chronicling the rhythm (and flavors) of the seasons in Poland. The first volume, "Rose Petal Jam," traced Beata Zatorska's childhood memories and flavors of a Polish summer across different cities including Warsaw, Poznan, Torun, and Zamosc (a town near my family's ancestral city) via her grandmother's recipes.

In "Sugared Orange," we are taken on a journey to Lublin, Warsaw, Krakow, and Lodz, treated to the many scenes of a Polish winter, and invited to participate in winter holidays like St. Nicholas' Day, Christmas Eve (Wigilia), and New Year's. For a young Beata, hard-to-get oranges represented Christmas as well as a taste of the exotic; Beata's grandmother used to make sugared orange peel every winter and "the perfume of orange peel infused my brain with dreams of tropical lands, orange trees, and exotic adventures for when I grew up." Beautiful reproduction advertising centering around oranges (and the color orange) is sprinkled throughout. Many orange-infused recipes are featured prominently, including a light, delicate sugared orange cake, a Polish cheesecake studded with sugared orange peel and raisins, orange ice cream, orange shortbread tart and poppyseed pancakes with orange. As candied orange peel can be difficult to locate in the United States, a basic sugared orange peel recipe makes a convenient starting point for many of the later recipes in the book.

"Sugared Orange" features many familiar dishes that my babcia used to make, including Christmas Eve sauerkraut with split peas, grated beets with horseradish, stuffed cabbage, and sauerkraut and mushroom pierogi. I also discovered some new favorites such as piernik (gingerbread cake), a loaf rich with spices, chopped candied ginger, and chocolate. Another new find was the savory buns with cabbage and mushrooms (kapusniaki); yeast dough surrounds a filling of sautéed onions, mushrooms (I used cremini), and sauerkraut. The directions were straightforward and easy to follow; I would recommend letting the rolls rise for at least 45 minutes to an hour on the second rise (the recipe specifies 15 minutes). They freeze very well and make a great snack or side for soup or salad. I also loved the Lublin barley cake (kaszak lubelski) - the mild flavor of barley, farmer's cheese and orange peel reminded me of an Italian ricotta Easter pie.

Ingredients are listed in American measurements and metric; I used the metric measurements when I tested recipes. Patriotic red and white ribbons make it easy to quickly bookmark your favorite recipes. The alphabetical (Polish) list of recipes is somewhat easier to use (and faster) than looking up ingredients in the index: for example, you won't find a listing for cabbage or sauerkraut in the index, though the book includes several recipes featuring them.

Beautiful photographs by Simon Target of Polish cities, Christmas markets, various foods and ingredients are interspersed with vintage Polish Christmas cards, advertising, paintings, and bilingual poems and carols that form a time capsule of a bygone Poland. Many of Beata's family photographs and stories resonated with me, such as the photo of her grandparents' evacuation orders (I still have copies of my great-grandparents' passports in Russian, as they lived near the border of present-day Ukraine). I know very little of my grandmother's early years in Poland; by reading Beata's stories and looking at the beautiful winter photographs, I could imagine my young grandmother playing in the snowy Polish countryside and running inside for a quick warmup of sauerkraut-filled rolls as Beata herself used to.

Part living history, part cookbook, "Sugared Orange" is a beautifully crafted tribute to Poland's traditional hearty cuisine and its winter holidays, regional traditions, and sometimes tumultuous history. Poland's once-thriving Jewish population is touched upon; you'll find a recipe and photo for a four-strand challah and photographs of a beautiful Baroque synagogue saved during WWII. Beata's family history and reminiscences of growing up in Poland (she moved to Australia at 19) give context to the many recipes and traditions, and reading (and cooking from) "Sugared Orange" is like sipping a cup of tea in a cozy kitchen as you watch the snow fall outside.

Another Gem in a Polish Crown 28 décembre 2013

I purchased 4 copies of Rose Petal Jam, one for myself and the other for my children, and told them that even though this story was written by Beata, they were reading about my life. I grew up very near Beata's home town and left Poland when I was 11 yrs. old her family experiences and mine were exactly the same. I"m so grateful for her eloquence and wonderful writing ability to put to paper what I wish I could. The book is exceptionally well written with gorgeous photography and a must read for anyone wanting a glimpse of what growing up in Poland was like.

Loving Rose Petal Jam so much I kept my fingers crossed that another book would follow and thankfully it did. Sugared Orange continues the experiences of an ex-pat returning to the land of her childhood memories with more amazing photographs and wonderful writing. These books are my treasures and I want more. I've read them and re-read them, many times with tears in my eyes, but also with a longing in my heart for what once was. Beata thank you so much for the gift of those two amazing books and please don't stop writing.
With sincere gratitude.

Enjoyable reading - product as described 27 mars 2014

This book makes for enjoyable reading. The Amazon product description is 100% accurate. The photos are gourgeous and there are quite a few.

Although this comparison sounds harsh, reading the book feels like the reader is paging through someone's scrapbook. Photos, a few personal notes, a recipe to remember that friend or city, etc. - something to remember the trip or early childhood.

Do note that although this book contains recipes, there are only 47 or 48 of them (out of 312 pages). They are easy to make.

But recipes are not the scope of this book. If you are looking for an introduction to Polish cuisine or a book on Polish cuisine, you may be disappointed.

The scope of this book is to tell the story - visually and orally - of an ex-patriate returning home for a visit with family and the country of birth - this time during the Winter around Christmas.

Beautifully presented book which is stands on its own as a document of a past era. It evokes a bitter sweet sadness for lost times not only for the author but for all families. It's a very pretty book and the recipes look fantastic. I will definitely try something out for Easter this weekend!
Highly recommended.

If you want to feel like you're being transported back in time and to the beautiful country of Poland, this book is for you. I love that the book feels a bit like a scrapbook with short stories from author's past, beautiful photos and illustrations, gorgeous fonts, and of course tasty recipes. Great as a gift too.
