Modern Lithuanian cuisine

Happy Saturday, my dear friends 🙂

Last week I was on a business trip in Lithuania (first time there for me).

And the biggest surprise there for me was the food. Today I wanna tell you for their modern cuisine.

I have spent three days in Lithuania. The first one I was in Siauliai. There I had a great perch fillet (local one) with stewed vegetables and recognized that the seafood and the deer meat is widely used all over the Baltic states (I have seen them in the menus of many Estonian restaurants as well).

Then, the second day I spent in Vilnius (the capital). There my colleagues brought me to their most favorite restaurant – Dziaugsmas. There I tried amazing examples of the modern Lithuanian food such as perch fillet, fried in sepia ink, potato waffle with cheese and pepper, bites with cheese and super fresh raw fish fillet.

The main dishes were great too. I had Zender fillet with leek and beans, covered in tasty fish broth. The rest of the main dishes were Beef Wellington and Schnitzel with amazing side dishes such as beetroot with crispy texture, super crispy potatos, flavorful greens with grated cheese.

Then we had a great selection of desserts such as bacon ice cream, fried cottage cheese with salted caramel and walnut pie. Such a diverse manu, accompanied with amazing selection of wines.

Then, the third day I has a lovely walk on the streets of the lovely vibrant Vilnius. And I have noticed that in most of the restaurants and bistros are offered daily business lunch menus. And I decided to try one of them. I chose Bistro 18 for my lunch and couldn’t be happier with my choice.

What a cozy place and what a great food! I had for lunch there Green peas soup and Curried prawns. The menu costs just 8 EUR! In all the places I ate, I have noticed the great price-quality ratio.

Definitely will be back to explore more of what the Lithuanian modern cuisine has to offer 🙂 If you have your own experience with it, will be more than happy to hear it.

French soirée

Bonsoir, my dear friends 🙂

Tonight with one of my closest friends – Tsvetana, who lives in France, decided to make a little French soirée. We got lucky that this week in Lidl Bulgaria was a French week and we took high quality French products such as the cheeses Tomme de Montagne and Le Cremeux Classic and the wine Coste Note (Cabernet Sauvignon). What a great combination – wine and cheese, and what could be more French than that? We have prepared also Iceberg salas with French mustard dressing and combined it with bread, olives and Truffles pesto Deluxe – an easy way to enjoy French food. But the most important thing is to do it with a good friend who helps you realize that friendship can not be affected by the distance and no matter how far Lyon, France is from Plovdiv, Bulgaria, when you meet is like you haven’t been a part.

Cheers, my dear friends.

Добър вечер, скъпи приятели 🙂

Тази вечер с една от най-близките ми приятелки – Цецито, която живее във Франция, решихме да си направим едно малко френско соаре. Имахме късмет, че тази седмица в Лидл България е Френска седмица и успяхме да си вземем висококачествени френски продукти като сирената Tomme de Montagne и Le Cremeux Classic и виното Coste Note (Каберне Совиньон). Каква невероятна комбинация – вино и сирене – какво по-френско от това? Приготвихме си също и Салата Айсберг с френски горчичен дресинг и я комбинирахме с хляб, маслини и Песто от трюфели Deluxe – лесен начин да се насладите на френската храна. Но най-важното е да й се насладите с добър приятел, който да ви покаже, че приятелството не може да се повлияе от разстоянието и без значение колко далеч е Лион, Франция от Пловдив, България, когато се видите, е сякаш не сте се разделяли.

Наздраве, приятели!

Bisous Bisous
