One year ago, when I bought a book about regional Polish cuisine, I found out about Easter dish that I have never heated about before – Pascha Wielkanocna. Pascha Wielkanocna is a Polish Easter dessert that is made of Polish white cheese, dried fruits, nuts and a lot of butter. The mixture is then put in a bowl and refrigerate for at least 12 hours.
