Traditional Lithuanian festivals are being celebrated in accordance with natural rhythms for many decades already and are a part of our national Lithuanian culture. They are a source of ideas on how to reinvent the ancient traditions and keep them alive. Lithuanian cuisine is the same, as it retains traditions and inspires the chefs to learn and discover new flavours every time. And this cook book is the same, for the old cooking traditions are presented in modern way while offering an opportunity to celebrate, cook, taste and get in touch with our Lithuanian traditions.
