2 Culinary patriotism is huge among Poles
Culinary patriotism is huge among Poles. Without much exaggeration, one may be tempted to declare that the native culinary culture is treated as part of national identity. In an attempt to identify the type of foods that best suit their taste (according to the report Knorr), 41% of respondents without hesitation pointed out the dishes according to the provisions of the Polish cuisine. Equally decisive in the choice of dishes of other cuisines of the world was only 4%. This does not mean that Poles are pre-biased to any news. One of the most frequently mentioned benefits of an attractive food is its diversity, and this naturally opens the possibility of placing on the daily menu new dishes, including those inspired by the cuisines of the world. There is a natural curiosity for new tastes in Poles, but also new solutions and new dishes. Culinary curiosity is much stronger in young people who are not burdened with family responsibilities and daily routine of home two-dish dinner. More open to new ideas are also women and people with higher level of education. What is the basis of Polish meal? Meat, of course.

3 Poles are strongly accustomed to meat
Poles are strongly accustomed to meat. Vegetarianism, which some people would consider popular, according to statistics isn’t so popular at all. Only 1% of people surveyed are vegetarians, while 95% admitted that being a vegetarian is not an option for them. Meat dishes can be prepared in a variety of ways, but by far the most of Poles like fried meat best. No wonder that the cutlet, whether chopped or minced , or just simple chicken breast breaded and fried is the number one in the Polish menu.

4 Polish Breakfast Polish breakfast typically consists of a sandwich
with ham and cheese, scrambled eggs or cereals with milk. We drink coffee, tea or juice for breakfast. Omitting breakfast is one of the most common nutritional mistakes. The fact is that we usually don’t feel hunger in the morning. What is more, drinking only a cup of coffee leads to a reduction of our mental efficiency throughout the day. When on diet, you should remember to eat breakfast even more.

5 French Breakfast Breakfast (petit déjeuner) -
usually consists of a baguette or croissant (croissant) with jam or butter, and coffee or chocolate, which are served in small bowls in order to immerse the bread or croissant in them. Orange juice is often drunk during the breakfast.

6 Italian Breakfast Italian breakfast is considered the best in the world by nutritionists. It is generally sweet, and according to the Mediterranean tradition, it consists of milk and dairy products (yoghurt), bread and fruits. It would be a good idea to start breakfast by drinking citrus juice, or eat a piece of pink grapefruit which target is to „open” the stomach. Or you can eat a blend of different fruits and vegetables instead. Valuable substances such as vitamins and minerals are best absorbed when stomach is empty. It is important, however, to eat fruits and vegetables which have room temperature as too cold fruits or vegetables have bad effects on the stomach, causing thermal shock.

7 British Breakfast A typical English breakfast may consist of a glass of juice, corn flakes with milk, or porridge with milk, grilled dishes such as grilled tomatoes, fried eggs, white beans, cooked and baked in tomato sauce, fresh bread, freshly prepared toast, butter, jam, strong tea with milk and sugar, or coffee with milk. Sometimes smoked salmon or cod can be served instead of eggs with bacon.

8 German Breakfast Breakfast is eaten in Germany between 6.00 and 9.00 AM. Many restaurants has their own breakfast menu which is actual up to 2 PM. A typical German breakfast consists of bread or buns, sausages, cheese, jam or honey and muesli, tea, or coffee. In Germany, for breakfast usually dark bread or rolls are eaten. Those are accompanied by the cheese and ham, various sausages, jam and honey. Eggs are typical for Sundays. Those people who want to eat wisely consume healthy muesli, yoghurt, cottage cheese and fruits, drinks tea, coffee and juice. Breakfast is usually eaten before going to school, between 7 and 9.30 AM. Most families prepare it themselves.

9 Polish Dinner Traditionally consists of two dishes -
usually it is a soup and a second course. Poland has developed a very rich tradition, as compared to the other European countries, of eating soups. Second course in rural communities had been based mainly on a flour, and from the seventeenth century – on potatoes. Meat dishes were typical for the wealthier social groups.

10 French Dinner Lunch (déjeuner) – is eaten between noon and 2 PM.
It is a hearty meal: first thing served is a hors d’oeuvre (entrée), then a main dish, cheeses, dessert, and coffee. In contrast to the Polish customs, the soups in France are not a part of the dinner and are not eaten too often.

11 Italian Dinner Italians eat dinner around 12 and 2 PM. It usually consists of meat, flour and fruit dishes.

12 British Dinner Lunch is eaten at noon – it is a light meal which replaced the solid dinner. It is mostly eaten away - at school, at work or in restaurants. It is usually a sandwich with tuna, cod, ham, cheese, shrimp, chicken filled to the brim with mayonnaise. A bag of potato chips and a bottle of cola is obligatory as well.

13 German Dinner Lunch is the main meal of the day. That is why it is composed of very rich, warm dishes. In Germany, it is relatively early dinner. Lunch is the main meal of the day and it consists of the vegetables and meat. In Catholic parts of Germany meat is not eaten on Fridays. Dishes made of eggs are eaten then, instead.
