During a cooking class you‘ll be able to have a closer look at Lithuanian traditional cuisine. We‘ll cook together most known Lithuanian dishes using old traditional recipes and afterwards will enjoy the food you just learned how to make. Cooking class is held in my family's cozy home. For lunch we would start preparing at around 12:00 with the aim of sitting at around 2:30pm. For dinner at around 5pm sitting at 7:30pm. Our delicious menu will consist of 4 courses. For a starter we can make three different types of appetizers: stuffed eggs, white salad, herring with beets. We can also make a wild mushroom soup which is a number one dish during the autumn period when most Lithuanians go to the forests to pick fresh and tasty wild mushrooms.
For main dish we can make either traditional potato pancackes served with curd cream and herbs or small boiled potato cakes, called "Whistlers“ served with butter and sour cream sauce. Roasted chicken is also available for those who consider this menu too vegetarian . For a dessert, an apple wrapped in a puff pastry, served with whipped cream, vanilla sauce or tasty ice cream .
I‘m always flexible to adapt menu to your personal needs. There are plenty of different choices in Lithuanian cuisine! If you are interested, please suggest time and date for lunch or dinner.
In Lithuania stuffed eggs are made not only for Easter but also on a special occasion and there are plenty of ways to stuff them. You'll see how simple you can make an incredible melt in the mouth snack.

Apple in a puff pastry
Apple is one of the most popular fruits in Lithuania. That's why many deserts here are made from fresh apples. We'll bake an apple in a puff pastry and will serve it with vanilla sauce, ice cream or whipped cream.
