I purchased this cookbook after a friend of mine made the delicious fresh mushroom soup from a recipe from this book. It was fabulous. I found the cookbook on-line searching overstock.com by author. The book I received was a new, updated revision on the one she had and even better than hers. I have used several recipes from it. I remember foods that I had when I was a child growing up in a Polish family, and sure enough, I found them in this cookbook. Every one turned out just as I remember. I would recommend this cookbook to anyone who is trying to find things from their "roots" of being Polish. What a joy !!!!!!
