LITHUANIAN FOOD

It’s not a secret that Lithuanians like to eat good, tasty and a lot of food. It is said about Lithuanian cooks that a good cook can create delicious food just by using simple ingredients. Lithuanian cuisine is pretty simple but has a variety of interesting dishes. Potatoes, rye, beet root, various meat, mushrooms and dairy products are often used when preparing Lithuanian food. It’s amazing how much food can be found in the Lithuanian cook’s kitchen. When you are the guest in Lithuanian house, it is possible to eat too much because the food is just too good to be left in the plate! Here are some of traditional and personally, our favorite Lithuanian food!
