Publications "Culinary map of Latvia" and brochure "Latvian Foods and Beverages"

Latvian culinary traditions have absorbed influences from both East and the West. The cuisine is distinctly seasonal with a strong emphasis on wild food. Spring brings birch juice, the Summer Solstice brings caraway seed cheese and beer. In Autumn, mushroom hunting and cranberry gathering becomes a national obsession while Winter is the time of smoked meat and fish, warming soups and bacon filled pīrāgi. For the simplest of snacks, just smear hemp butter and honey on a slice of rye bread!
Latvians are hospitable, and they will bring gifts when they come visiting and always give you one for the road when you’re leaving.
