    I like these dishes as well as Virtiniai with cherries. Herrings with onion and rye-bread are popular everywhere.

    I tried a pie (pyragas) with blue berries. May as well have virtiniai with blueberries.

    -ish, it's an alternative version of Mille-feuille. it came about with Napoleons visit to Lithuania minor, hence the name

    Fried vegetables.

    As for kvass, a good duonos gira should be thick and have this color:

    The one in the photo previously posted in this thread is way too dark, it cannot possibly be natural - they've probably put some burned sugar in it to make it like that.




    Anyway, as far as I'm concerned, nothing beats these:

    Kastinys (a thick garlic-butter-sourcream dip) with kanapienė (hemp seed topping)
    http://ausrra.blogspot.com/2010/03/z...-kanapyne.html


    ^^coupled with oven baked potatoes or rye bread with sunflower seeds




    But my mother is from Aukštaitija, so while growing up our "daily bread" was pancakes (lietiniai)


    they're eaten either with sweet curd and/or fruit jam toppings/fillings




    ..or savory fillings like: mushrooms, fried vegetables or meat



    Sometimes the pancakes are boiled instead of fried, in which case they're called skryliai


    the sweet version:


    Sometimes they're fried with chopped apples added to the dough:


    or as a filling:


    The usual thing for breakfast is some sort of a porridge, oat flake & buckwheat are, I think, most common :
