Recipes

This collection of recipes has been garnered over many years by family and friends and essentially constitutes a partial Dudziński gastronomic heritage. They include some tried and tested adaptations of such staples of Polish cuisine as Barszcz, Bigos, Chłodnik and Gołąbki palce lizać i wodą popijać (which roughly translates as “finger-licking, lip-smacking good!”).
