Robert Strybel was born in a once predominantly Polish suburb of Detroit, Michigan. He received a master's degree in Polish studies from the University of Wisconsin, and taught Polish language and history courses before moving to Warsaw, Poland. He spent more than three decades there as a correspondent for the Polish-American press, and worked for Reuters News Agency. With his Polish-born wife, Maria, he co-authored Polish Heritage Cookery, believed to be the largest Polish cookbook (rich of some 2,200 recipes) published in English.
