The Polish Bakery


As regular readers of Rose's Rooftop will know, I'm a huge fan of baked goods, so when The Polish Bakery got in touch, I was really excited to try some of their products. They're an award-winning family business founded in 2003 and based in London with their breads available from many supermarkets such as Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsbury's. 
As my maternal grandfather was Polish and born in Łódź, I have lots of memories of eating traditional Polish food with him, especially at this time of year, so it was really special for me to get the opportunity again. Read on to check out what the bakery has to offer and what I thought of their breads and cakes...

Breads

The Polish Bakery is known for it's hand-finished sourdough bread created with a traditional Polish recipe. Sourdough contains probiotics, reduces insulin levels, has a low glycemic index and above all, is extremely tasty. My favourite ways to eat it at this time of year is are toasted with a tomato and bean soup or dipped into baked Camembert studded with garlic. 

The bakery also stocks a range of rye breads, most of which are yeast free and perfect for making open sandwiches with. I first discovered rye bread in Scandinavia and have been a big fan since, it's texture is denser than wheat flour bread, but it's higher in fiber and contains less calories if you are trying to cut down. It also tastes great with cream cheese, picked cucumber, smoked salmon and dill!

Cakes

I've eaten a lot of Polish biscuits in my life, but not many cakes, so it was really interesting for me to see and taste some traditional desserts. The first was a cheesecake, something which I wouldn't have associated with Poland but after having looked it up, it's apparently one of the most common desserts served in both Polish restaurants and at home and after having tasted it - I can totally see why!

The second was a Luxury Poppy Seed Cake, filled with cherries, apples, walnuts, almonds and chocolates. Poppy seeds are something that I've seen quite a lot in Polish baking and although my mind wouldn't jump immediately to pairing them with chocolate, it works really well and is a great alternative this time of year to Christmas cake.

The Polish Bakery products are available at most supermarkets and you can check out their website here

Have you tried any Polish food before?

  4. I have to admit that in our area you can't get Polish food - only one time in my life I got an invitation from a nice Polish woman and the food she served was good! What you show here looks extremely yummy!

  23. Wow, so many delicious looking treats! I've never had Polish food let alone baked goods, but now you have me wanting to try! I had no idea you were Polish either, such a beautiful mix of Italian and Polish! I believe I've only had Sourdough bread once or twice, but now you have me wanting to try it out with soup the next time I make it. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great day!
