Bread baking traditions in Latvia


In the countryside, bread baking traditions are still strong. There is a great variety of breads. Latvians cherish the old and special ways to make bread. Centuries old recipes and know-how are in favour. The dough is scalded in a trough, kneaded by hand and then lovingly shaped into loaves that are baked in a real wood stove on maple leaves. Many traditional farmsteads open their doors to tourists and invite them to witness the whole process and get involved preparing own loaf to take home. Nothing is tastier than a warm slice of bread with milk and honey served on a nice terrace among blooming apple ad cherry trees on a fresh and sunny spring day.
