|Cooking my way through From a Polish Country House Kitchen|
This week’s soup is one that you can’t miss. The first time I saw someone eating it in a restaurant, I was drawn to the unusual color and had to try making it at home. This is the third version of chłodnik that I’ve prepared. An American friend has a very different reaction.
She nicknamed it “the Pepto-Bismol soup” and refused to try it, until a mutual friend invited us to her home for a Polish cooking lesson and chłodnik was on the lesson plan for the day. I think it was more than good manners that had her singing the praises of the bright pink soup in the end.
|Chłodnik – a refreshing, cold beet soup and one of the healthiest meals I can imagine. I wanted to make this one before it got too cold for a summer soup.|
Like bake-alongs I’ve done in the past, I’m not posting the recipes in From a Polish Country House Kitchen, but if you’d like your own copy, it’s available on Amazon.
