History of Grudziąd

The history of Grudziądz goes back to the Middle Ages when it was a fortified settlement of Chelmno Land located upon Gora Zamkowa (castle Mountain). It was seized by the Teutonic Knights in 1240 and was granted town status in 1291 and returned to Polish rule in 1466. Grudziądz was once again under foreign powers, this time by the Prussians from 1772 until 1920.

During the Second World War about 70% of the town was destroyed in hard fought battles. The medieval layout of Grudziądz is still very evident today and has twenty six granaries, (now some of which have been made into dwellings) and a Jesuit college standing in line along the bank of the river Vistula. Dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries, some of the granaries have Gothic lower storeys.

What Wikipeda says about Polish Cuisine

Polish cuisine (Polish: kuchnia polska) is a style of cooking and food preparation originating from Poland. It has evolved over the centuries due to historical circumstances. Polish national cuisine shares some similarities with other Central European and Eastern European traditions as well as French and Italian similarities. It is rich in meat, especially pork, chicken and beef (depending on the region) and winter vegetables (cabbage in the dish bigos), and spices.

It is also characteristic in its use of various kinds of noodles the most notable of which are kluski as well as cereals such as kasha (from the Polish word kasza). Generally speaking, Polish cuisine is hearty and uses a lot of cream and eggs. The traditional dishes are often demanding in preparation. Many Poles allow themselves a generous amount of time to serve and enjoy their festive meals, especially Christmas eve dinner (Wigilia) or Easter breakfast which could take a number of days to prepare in their entirety.

The Polish national dishes are bigos; pierogi; kielbasa; kotlet schabowy (type of breaded cutlet); gołąbki (type of cabbage roll); zrazy (type of roulade); roast (Polish: pieczeń); sour cucumber soup (Polish: zupa ogórkowa); mushroom soup, (Polish: zupa grzybowa) (quite different from the North American cream of mushroom); tomato soup (Polish: zupa pomidorowa); rosół (variety of meat broth); żurek (sour rye soup); flaki (variety of tripe soup); and barszcz among others.
