Top Chefs Whip Up Inventive Polish Cuisine in Unique New TV Series: Poland on a Plate

Chicago Chefs Tap Polish Roots for New Cooking Show on Polvision, Comcast, YouTube

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Aug 4, 2014) - "Poland on a Plate" is a unique new cooking show featuring popular chefs showcasing contemporary Polish recipes. "It's not your grandmother's cooking," says Poland on a Plate host Basia Brown, Polish food enthusiast and passionate cook. "Our show is taking Polish cooking to the next level."

Kevin Hickey of Bottlefork, Rick Gresh of David Burke's Primehouse, Mark Grosz of Oceanique, Michael Lachowicz of Restaurant Michael and Gale Gand of Tru and SpritzBurger are among the stellar chefs who demonstrate their own innovative recipes. While whipping up new twists on traditional Polish favorites, these inventive chefs and restaurateurs focus on the "farm-to-table, fresh and local" food trend so popular in both the U.S. and Poland.

Featured chefs reflect their Polish roots in imaginative dishes such as Tom Rybinski's Lobster Pierogi and Deconstructed Salmon Pierogi, Bogna Solak's modern take on old-world desserts and Art Wnorowski's gourmet twists on an old Polish favorite, polska kielbasa.

"By showcasing exciting new culinary trends coming out of Poland, 'Poland on a Plate' appeals not just to people of Polish descent, but to all cooking fans," says Basia Brown.

In addition to hosting guest chefs, Brown presents her own two-minute, easy-to-follow cooking tutorial with family-friendly recipes starring Poland's famous national export, Krakus ham, the show's major sponsor.

Chicago area viewers can watch episodes of "Poland on a Plate" at 8:30 Friday nights on Polvision 24.4 and Comcast 397, while global food lovers can find featured recipes at Poland on a Plate (polandonaplate.com) with video clips linked to YouTube.

Poland's Food Revolution Goes Global

Poland's "food revolution" has a truly global flavor: Last year, the Polish Institute in Israel hosted that nation's first Polish Culinary Week, with a series of culinary-cultural experiences intended to redefine the concept of Polish cuisine. In addition, Paul Richardson, in a 2013 Financial Times travel article, called Poland's light and inventive new cuisine "a food revolution" -- especially in restaurants along the Baltic Coast.

The pilot episode of "Poland on a Plate" stars Artur Moroz, well-known chef and owner of restaurant Bulaj in Sopot, located on the Baltic Sea coast. For his guest appearance, Moroz created Goose Escalopes with Squash Risotto, and a Roasted Goose plate with Root Vegetables, featuring local ingredients common in his Polish hometown.
