POLISH SUMMER CUISINE MAZOVIAN AREA
	Polish cuisine was always connected with the four seasons of the year because the Polish used to eat mainly what they produced when there wasn’t an exchange of goods with other countries. 	When winters were really harsh people had to eat more high- calorie dishes compared with food eaten in spring or summer. They went stag or boar hunting and then used the meat. Housewives prepared vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, beetroots. Those vegetables can be easily kept in cold cellars until the first breath of spring. But often when the spring was in the air stores of food were used up and a lot of poor people suffered from hunger. 	Summer was the only hope for the new harvest. At this time of the year people could eat field crops and forest fruit. Moreover, they were busy with work on the field and didn’t have enough time for cooking. 	That’s why our summer meals are very simple and easy to prepare.
