Lithuanian Cooking Event

Lithuania, the largest country of the Baltic States, is adjacent to Latvia and Russia.

Lithuanian cuisine has some commonalities with Polish, German, and Ukrainian cuisines. As a cold and moist northern climate has shaped the traditional cuisine of Lithuania, the dishes with popular and local ingredients, such as potatoes, barley, rye, leaf vegetables, beets, berries and mushrooms, tend to be heavy, but tasty.

For this Lithuanian cooking event, we tried one of the most popular snacks, kepta duona su sūriu, which are fried pieces of bread with garlic covered in cheese; the most traditional cold beet soup (for summer); and one of the most popular dishes, potato pudding (kugelis).

Kbac

Julia kindly shared gira (Kvass), which is a non-alcoholic beverage made by the natural fermentation of wheat, rye, or barley bread. Russians and Ukrainians have similar kvass, too.

More pictures are coming soon!
