This web site was established to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of Koło Polek w Hobart in 1963.
All the members of the Polish Ladies Circle in Hobart who have contributed their favourite recipes to this web site wish you a healthy appetite.
The recipes have been contributed by the Polish ladies themselves and were originally compiled to commemorate their 40th anniversary in 2003.
They celebrate the tremendous contribution of the Koło Polek to the life of the Polish community in Hobart and to their adopted homeland, Australia.
The recipes were originally written in Polish however an English translation is also included so that they can be accessed more widely.
It is the wish of the Polish ladies that they are enjoyed by their children, their grandchildren and by lovers of Polish food all around the world.
