The Polish Cooking Show

Shot in Chicago, this program celebrates a mix of Polish history, culture, and cuisine.

In the Polish tradition, when a young man gets married it is his mother’s duty to teach her new daughter-in-law the family recipes and the traditions and stories that go with them. The Polish Cooking Show captures this dynamic as Natalie and Mama Ala prepare Golabki or “Little Pigeons,” rice and minced meat stuffed cabbage rolls. It is a mix of history, culture, and cuisine.

    The Polish Cooking Show is a local public television program presented by WTTW.
