   “A little history:
   
   Every ancient Polish manor has its own cookery book, the growth of
   centuries, carefully bound, exquisitely-penned recipes, yellow with
   age. Amoung those recipes we should not fail to find one for Bigos, a
   most delectable dish served at every hunting party. In Pan Tadeusz,
   Mickiewicz said, ”There has been a bearhunt. The bear is killed, a
   great fire is made and while the Bigos is warming in a mighty pot,
   the hungry hunters drink crystal clear, goldenflecked wodka from
   Gdansk."
