National Book Festival

Husband-and-wife cooking team Laura and Peter Zeranski have focused on the art of Polish cuisine for almost 40 years. Peter’s mother, Alina Zeranska, encouraged a love for Polish food in the family after publishing “The Art of Polish Cooking” in 1968, a critically acclaimed best-seller. Peter Zeranski continued the work of honoring Polish culture and tradition through food by passing down this passion to his own family, publishing “Polish Classic Recipes” in 2011 with his wife. In “Polish Classic Desserts” (Pelican Publishing), this cooking duo offers another addition to their Classic Recipes series, this time serving up Poland’s sweetest traditions and providing recipes for mazurkas, babas, pastries, pudding treats and other tasty classics. “Polish Classic Desserts” won the 2013 Gourmand Award for Best Eastern European Cookbook.
