Americans encouraged to try Polish food at Thanksgiving

Poland’s embassy in Washington has taken the opportunity to promote Polish food as Americans celebrate Thanksgiving with family get-togethers and lavish meals on Thursday.

“Thanksgiving isn’t traditionally celebrated in Poland, but that doesn’t mean Polish food can’t end up on your dinner table,” the Polish embassy in Washington said in a tweet on the eve of the holiday.

It posted a link to a set of Polish dishes that it said could be enjoyed by Polish Americans “during their yearly, turkey-filled family reunions.”

The “10 Polish dishes that will complement your Thanksgiving dinner” include Polish cabbage and mushrooms (kapusta z grzybami), pumpkinpotato dumplings (kopytka dyniowe), Polish fried beets (buraczki zasmażane), Polish vegetable salad (sałatka warzywna), and a baked potato dish known as babka ziemniaczana.

Also, stewed pears (kompot z gruszek) could make a fine Thanksgiving drink, according to the Polish Your Kitchen website.

Americans celebrate Thanksgiving annually on the fourth Thursday of November with a feast of turkey, pie and other holiday goodies.

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump this week “pardoned” two North Carolina turkeys, named Bread and Butter, to spare them from becoming a Thanksgiving meal, Fox News reported.

President George H.W. Bush established the annual turkey pardon tradition in 1989 by sparing a 50-pound bird, the US broadcaster said on its website.
