Experience the variety of Lithuanian cuisine

Vilnius is a history-laden city with an astonishingly broad variety in culinary delights. We accompany Denise Snieguole Wachter to the hometown of her mother. To the city where she used to spend her summers.

The author has captured her most cherished memories of that time in this book. With dishes and stories about people who made Vilnius cuisine what it is today. With markets that mirror both the past and the present. In the youthful gastronomy scene of Vilnius, we meet caterers who combine national pride and an ambition for top quality, who love the recipes of their home and yet strive to refine them with a modern note.

The cookbook offers typical dishes such as the deep-fried garlic bread »Kepta duona« with Lithuanian aioli or the pink soup »Saltibarsciai«, but also personal creations such as trout carpaccio or the Vilnius burger. And we also get our fair share of savoury desserts, such as the popular Napoleon cake. This book is an inspiring trip to the culinary highlights of Lithuania’s capital city.

Denise Snieguole Wachter: is the culinary expert of STERN magazine. She is half Lithuanian and even as a child preferred cookbooks to novels. She is fascinated by how dishes can tell elaborate stories.
