Baltic Cuisine – From Inside and Outside
The three Baltic States have a common past, friendly present and hopefully full of cooperation future years. Not only historical facts and situations but also elements of national cuisines join the three cultures and their differences make us more interesting to each other.
Recently, Latvians searched for our modern, new taste of Latvia. Do Lihuanians and Estonians have modern touch in their old recipes? How do we call the same dish in each of the countries? What do we change to make it taste more national?
The presentation takes a look on three cuisines from various perspectives, including linguistic, historical and personal.
Key words: cuisine, dishes, taste, interpretation, national value
