Rose Petal Jam: Recipes and Stories from a Summer in Poland Reviews
I caught sight of this book by chance as a facebook ad. What a buy it has been!
Although I first found this book while browsing cookbooks, I must say that this is more of a memoir and travelogue than a true recipe book. Yes, there are some recipes included, but there are not that many and some instructions and measurements are vague. I’m not saying this is a problem, but if you buy this book for its recipes, you might very well be disappointed. Buy it for the lovely feelings that come over you as you read the words and look at the pictures.
I will just affirm all of the best comments made about this lovely book. It's a joy to peruse, even if you never intend to cook any of the wonderfully authentic recipes in it. If you have Polish, or Polish American friends, this book would be a perfect gift that will be treasured by the recipient.
This book is not only beautiful but it tells such a heart-felt story about childhood memories and the loss of leaving your homeland. I can hardly wait to try some of the recipes, but the book is well worth owning even if I never do.
I love this cookbook. It is a complete experience. The format and photography is as lovely as you could find in an art book. While the writing is enchanting: poetic, but also personal. I have tried several recipes and they prove that the book is practical as well as gorgeous! I have her Sugared Orange book as well and look forward to the other two seasons.
this book touched me, the recipes of Beatas family and grandmother resembled the aromas of my childhood summers in Poland and brought back feelings of nostalgia. Beautiful pictures and her writing paints a picture of the unforgettable landscape, people and food of a beloved country that still remains a hidden gem to western cultures. A beautifully written memoir that would bring any immigrated Pole to tears and to their kitchen to recreate the tastes of their homeland.
It’s a beautiful book with a feel that no detail was overlooked. The writings, photographs, recipes...they awaken your soul and senses. The book was much larger and weightier than I expected, but it was the size that encouraged me to slow down, and sit and enjoy the stories and pictures. For the recipes, so far we have made the beef goulash, and it was delicious! I hope to order the sequel book.
This book is a gem!! The photos are ABSOLUTELY fabulous!.
