Picked by myself in Lithuania's meadows and forests
My name is Jurga, I am Lithuanian living in Tokyo. Me and my husband moved to Japan just this summer, where we'll be living for the next 3 years. A desire to travel encouraged us to seek for adventure and brought us far away from home - to Japan!
We love meeting new people and feel excellent in an international environment. Since I'm an enthusiastic cooker, I enjoy exploring different cultures' cuisines while travelling.
In my kitchen I use some ingredients that are brought from my home country since it's really difficult or even impossible to find them in Japan. The fragrant herbs were collected by myself at Lithuanian forests and meadows at this summer. Some herbs are grown here in my balcony.
My kitchen is not a fancy one but you can expect to find it in a sunny and cozy home-style. Dinner is served in a traditional way with Lithuanian linen tablecloths and brown clay pialas made by myself. If you wish to discover more about this unique small country, I would be more than happy to introduce an admiring photo album of unseen nature spots, show Lithuanian famous things: linen, amber and baltic jewellery, woven bands.
I would love to invite you to our place and share some secrets of unique traditional Lithuanian cuisine!
