Hearty polish food, great vodka, prime location on Chapel St; what more could you ask for!?
This beautiful cookbook from the popular Melbourne cafe/restaurant/bar is divided into three sections, opening with a lovely history of Poland’s food culture and a heartwarming story of the opening of Borsch, Vodka & Tears itself.
The second section contains everything you could possibly want to know about Vodka including it’s history, what food to pair it with and some fabulous cocktail recipes. Then we move on to the Borsch section with fantastic food like Potato Blintzes, Pierogi, Sauerkraut and of course, many varieties of Borsch.
