Workshop: Colouring Easter eggs in traditional technique
I am pretty confident that this will be the best part of this menu :) Easter is an important fest in Lithuania and almost every family holds on to tradition of colouring eggs. There are lots of different ways to do that! I am going to show you an ancient way which includes using onion skin for color, herbal ornaments and special techniques, that you would never guess of.
Meatloaf (a.k.a. Fake Bunny)
In Lithuania we call this dish Fake Bunny. Rabbits and bunnies are symbols of Easter, therefore this dish can be usually found on the Easter table. Meatloaf of Fake Bunny is made from minced beef and pork, sometimes stuffed with eggs.
White salad is a traditional dish in all East Europe and Russia. I decided to include this dish in Easter menu, because in Lithuania we always have white salad during such major feasts as Easter.
Muffins with apples and chocolate
This recipe is one of my mother's kitchen greatest hits! When she is baking them, even neighbours can smell the amazing fragrance of chocolate and apples combination.
Lithuanian herbal tea
Straight from Lithuanian forests and meadows - all herbs were picked by my sister.
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 traveling.
In my kitchen I use fragrant herbs, collected by myself or my family in Lithuanian forests and meadows. 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! Here is link to my cooking class on TBS N-Sta: https://youtu.be/tYnL_eWzx48
