Hanka's Table is not only a Cookbook but much more!  Jun 25, 2006
Hanka's Table is an interesting mix of recipes - majority of them for Polish food but not only, it contains also politics/history and art.
Hanka Sawka wrote the restrospection of life in Poland during communism. These memories are additionally supported by nice photographs. I can assure you - the memories give the idea of how life is under communism (I was there, I know!)
The recipes are additionally enriched by beautiful art decorations done by Jan Sawka.

Very interesting compendium. This is not a book you just borrow from the library, this is something you would like to have!
A Wonderful Cookbook/A Story for Our World to Know!  Dec 1, 2005
I have always loved to cook and read. Through the years, I have accumulated a large number of books - many of which are cookbooks. I cannot tell you how very thrilled I was to discover your book, At Hanka's Table. My own heritage is half Polish on my father's side. Though I have fond memories of Grandma and Grandpa, I have longed to learn more about my Polish roots. I cannot thank you enough for writing your wonderful book!

Your and Jan's story is amazing. It truly shows how strong people can be with love and determination. You are an inspiration, a brightly shining light upon this planet we call Earth. Food, people, and their culture are so intertwined and I love how your story is woven with your recipes. And, I so very much appreciate your inclusion of Polish history in your writings! I love that you have made it possible for me to learn of learn not only about the darker times, but to know how beautiful and rich Poland's history is.

I was so very drawn to your husband, Jan's artwork which so enhanced your book. My first impression upon finding your book was how lovely the jacket is with it's colorful presentation! I was happy to enjoy Jan's work throughout At Hanka's Table.

I look forward to trying many of your recipes and adding them to my table regularly. The only problem is deciding which to try first! Thank you so much again for sharing your recipes and your story. At Hanka's Table is a wonderful treasure! Robin L (Romash)
A feast of creativity  Jan 21, 2005

This book is an uplifting tapestry woven from food, hope, creativity, and art, against a backdrop of the fight for Polish freedom.
Diverse themes are sucessfully combined in this book, just as the fresh ingredients are in the authors recipes.

I smiled when I read that a young Polish man must stop his courtship if served the black soup. I whipped up a tasty pot of her winter Bigos (hunters stew) while reading about Jan, Hankas reknowned artist husband, and the Grateful Dead!

The location of Poland on the old historic trade routes have helped give Poland a broadly based cusine that includes French, Italian, and Turkish methods and spicing making the book's easily prepared dishes seem a little more exotic.

North America has welcomed the Polish here since the 1600's, and remember, without the help of Polish Generals Kosciuszko and Pulaski the American Revolution might have turned out a bit differently.

At Hanka's Table is a beautifully illustrated book and inspiring family story that crosses many borders to honor us with a recipe for living and a bit of love.

inspiring book   Nov 17, 2004
This book is the first I've read that gives an American reader the woman's
slant on what it was like growing up behind the iron curtain. I really had
no idea of sufferings of Polish people during and after WWII, and the
importance of Polish tradition to the people maintaining a sense of who they
are--and of the importance to women in all of that. All of this was new to
me. I also enjoyed the first-hand story of the experience of a family of
modern refugees, and how they found their way in America. It was a very
inspiring book.
Easy For Your Stomach  Oct 19, 2004
This book is both: a fascinating family life story starting in Poland, behind the Iron Curtain, miraculously emerging into the Open World to continue in pursuit of artistic dreams, and a treasure house of traditional Polish meals enriched during the voyage. The wisdom of the book lies in the combination of both elements based on very deep passion, humanity, peace and love; some of the feelings kept secretly in the bottom of hearts for a long time. Meals, arts, adversities of life, family, dreams, friendships and struggles - these ingredients surprisingly support each other during the years leading finally to the speak-out, which the book really is. You can find them all inside flavored with flavorsome photographs and delightful graphics.
