It is rich in meat, especially pork, chicken and beef (depending on the region) and winter vegetables (cabbage in the dish bigos), and spices.
It is also characteristic in its use of various kinds of noodles the most notable of which are kluski as well as cereals such as kasha (from the Polish word kasza). Generally speaking, Polish cuisine is hearty and uses a lot of cream and eggs. The traditional dishes are often demanding in preparation. Many Poles allow themselves a generous amount of time to serve and enjoy their festive meals, especially Christmas eve dinner (Wigilia) or Easter breakfast which could take a number of days to prepare in their entirety.
The Polish national dishes are bigos [biɡɔs]; pierogi [piɛrɔɡi]; kielbasa; kotlet schabowy [kɔtlɛt`sxabɔvɨ] (type of breaded cutlet); gołąbki [ɡɔwɔ̃bki] (type of cabbage roll); zrazy [zrazɨ] (type of roulade); roast (Polish: pieczeń) [piɛt͡ʂɛɲ]; sour cucumber soup (Polish: zupa ogórkowa) [zupa`ɔɡurkɔva]; mushroom soup, (Polish: zupa grzybowa) [zupa`ɡʐɨbɔva] (quite different from the North American cream of mushroom); tomato soup (Polish: zupa pomidorowa) [zupa`pɔmidɔrɔva]; rosół [rɔsuw] (variety of meat broth); żurek [ʐurɛk] (sour rye soup); flaki [flaki] (variety of tripe soup); and barszcz [barʂt͡ʂ] among others.
