Cultural Food Feast Day

Recently, I learned that in my FCS class, (the new, hip way to say HomeEc) "Family Consumer Sciences", we are going to do a unit on cultural food. This is by far the most thought provoking thing we ever done in this class. Last year, we had a general unit of cooking and learned how to scramble an egg by watching a video first to prepare (that took 1 day) and then took many cautions in making the eggs themselves (day 2). Since cooking is a regularity in my family, it was ridiculous to have to watch a video on making an egg. But, I guess for most people this is an issue; not knowing how to cook even the simplest of things.

Anyway, this new project this year shines a new light on this class and has the potential to be a very interesting subject.

So, how this is supposed to go...
Thus the name; Cultural Food Feast Day we will make a food from a certain country or region and present and share it in class. I am partially Polish and so I was thinking maybe something like Galumpki (spelling?) or Perogies.

Any ideas or cultural dishes and recipes that you like? That are maybe Polish and/or otherwise note-worthy?
