Summary/Abstract: The main subject of the present article is the national cuisine of Kirghizstan (including the customs associated with the serving meat-based dishes). The object of my interest also has to do with the history and the culture of the Kirghiz people, which are reflected in the language, traditions and the customs of the inhabitants of Kirghizstan. The recognition and the understanding of the image of the world which is featured in a given culture is necessary for the scholar, and one of the means of an analysis of this image is constituted by language. Owing to language, we may understand a given community, its mode of life and the collection of the basic elements of a specific culture.The task of the present work is to represent the existing facts or phenomena which are of interest not only to linguists but also to sociologists and specialists in the field of culture studies. An important reason for the writing of this article also has to do with an intention to present information about my country, its history, modernity, culture, and particularly its cuisine. My task was to present an image of Kirghizstan which, being an Asian country, is unfamiliar in Poland
