Polish traditional cuisine is full of paradox...
Russian pierogis is the most popular Polish dish and surprisingly it doesn't come from Russia.In Russia the same pierogis are called Polish ;) Ukrainian Borscht has nothing in common with Ukraine, nor Greek-style Fish with Greece.In Hungary nobody has never heard of Hungarian Potato Pancakes,of course because it is 100% Polish dish.Not to mention Breton Beans that is not known in France at all ;) Where are ALL these names come from then???It's a mystery..... ;)
Leczo is also one of the most popular dishes in Poland but it originally comes from Hungary.It is very thick and chunky stew,in Poland often served with pieces of saussage,but I much preffer the vegetable version.
