We recently had the pleasure of dinner hosting Father Maciej, a visiting priest to our parish in New York for the month of July. Fr. Maciej is from the Polish city area where my husband and I taught English as a Second Language many, many years ago.
Fr. Maciej, while originally from Poland, is currently studying and serving the church in Spain, far from his homeland and his favorite Polish food, gołąbki. (pronounced: go- wump - key) In my usual unthinking exuberance, I offered to cook the dish for Father, even though I had never made gołąbki before.
