There are an estimated 500,000 Polish people currently living in the United Kingdom, with many living in London, Birmingham, Bradford and Manchester. In recent years there has been a notable increase in Polish food shops, bakeries and delicatessens. Polish cuisine is a mixture of Slavic culinary traditions and is often rich in meat, winter vegetables and spices. This version of a traditional Polish dish incorporates the Bramley apple, which has been embraced by Britain's many Polish guests.
Bigos is considered by many to be the national dish of Poland and, as such, has many variations around the country and from family to family. Some recipes use sauerkraut or pickled cabbage. We've used fresh cabbage for extra colour. It's important not to stir the stew too much as it simmers or you will break up the potatoes and apples. Serve it in bowls with rye bread to mop up the delicious juices.

The Bramley is rightly recognised by professional chefs and home cooks alike as the best apple for cooking. Grown only in Britain, the Bramley’s unique qualities make it one of the most versatile ingredients, equally at home in a savoury stir fry as a traditional apple pie.
