DescriptionLooking for an authentic, low-key local experience away from the tourist crowds? You are invited to a local home for a three-course Latvian traditional meal. At the dinner, you will be offered a three-course meal featuring traditional Latvian dishes. To start, it will be cold beet soup, which is made with beets and kefir (a fermented milk drink) – a true vitamin bomb. This soup is a favorite in Latvia as soon as air temperature signals the coming of summer. For the main course, you will be offered peas with bacon and onions. According to folklore, this dish symbolizes prosperity and vitality. It is a must-have on the Christmas table, but you can enjoy it any time of year – it’s that good! Alternatively, vegetarians will be offered potatoes with chanterelle mushrooms. This dish is also a common staple and widely served all over the country. To satisfy your sweet tooth, you will be offered a layered rye bread dessert. The meal will be accompanied by birch sap – another local gastronomic adventure. The apartment is situated in the center of Riga, just a 15-minute walk from Old Riga. Please be aware that there is a cat at home. Also, let us know of any food allergies before booking the experience. Join for a delightful evening of Latvian cuisine!
