Poland's territory extends across several geographical regions, between latitudes 49° and 55° N, and longitudes 14° and 25° E.
This coast is marked by several spits, coastal lakes (former bays that have been cut off from the sea), and dunes.The largely straight coastline is indented by the Szczecin Lagoon, the Bay of Puck, and the Vistula Lagoon.
The centre and parts of the north lie within the North European Plain. Rising above these lowlands is a geographical region comprising the four hilly districts of moraines and moraine-dammed lakes formed during and after the Pleistocene ice age.
These lake districts are the Pomeranian Lake District, the Greater Polish Lake District, the Kashubian Lake District, and the Masurian Lake District.The Masurian Lake District is the largest of the four and covers much of north-eastern Poland.
Polish cuisine is a style of cooking and food preparation originating in or widely popular in Poland.Polish cuisine has evolved over the centuries to become very eclectic due to Poland's history.Polish cuisine shares many similarities with other Slavic countries, especially Czech, Slovak, Belarusian, Ukrainian and Russian cuisines.1 It has also been widely influenced by other Central European cuisines, namely German, Austrian and Hungarian cuisines 2 as well as Jewish,3 French, Turkish and Italian culinary traditions.4 It is rich in meat, especially pork, chicken and beef (depending on the region), winter vegetables (cabbage in the dish bigos), and herbs.5 It is also characteristic in its use of various kinds of noodles the most notable of which are kluski as well as cereals such as kasha (from the Polish word kasza).6 Generally speaking, Polish cuisine is hearty and uses a lot of cream and eggs.The traditional dishes are often demanding in preparation.
Many Poles allow themselves a generous amount of time to serve and enjoy their festive meals, especially Christmas eve dinner (Wigilia) or Easter breakfast which could take a number of days to prepare in their entirety.Źródło: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_cuisine#History
