Lithuanian cooking lesson with Jurga
Min: 4 Max: 6
Fresh mint tea
Aside from great flavor, mint is extremely good for you.
Homemade pressed cottage cheese with honey
Honestly, Lithuanian cottage cheese is the only product if its kind in the world. It's even listed by UNESCO and the European Union as protected product. Historians claim that Lithuanians have been making cheese from curds since the Middle Ages. I produce cottage cheese in original way - with caraway seeds, and serve it with honey as an appetizer.
Buckwheat patties with sour sauce and fresh salad
Buckwheat groats are often used in Lithuanian cuisine, they are grown and produced locally. Buckwheat porridge is well known for its powerful health benefits and is a traditional dish in Lithuania. It is an incredibly versatile food with a neutral flavor that can be combined with variety of other ingredients.
Blueberry dumplings with sour cream
The original name of these dumplings is "Cold Noses" and is undoubtedly inspired by their appearance: the blueberries give these nose-shaped dumplings a blue hue, as you might see on a person caught outside in a snow storm. "Cold Noses" reminds me childhood summers when me and my sister used to ask grandmother to make them for us. Peculiar name and berries fascinate children! These are tastiest dusted with sugar and served with sour cream.
Herbal tea from Lithuanian forests
Each of my menus includes different fragrant herbal tea picked from Lithuanian forests and meadows by myself or my family. Herbal remedies have dozens of therapeutical features.
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
