Latvian Cookbook - 1000 receipes
Basically, Latvian food consists of chicken & pork fillets battered in egg and deep fried served with traditional dark rye bread and lots and lots of salads and fresh vegetables. Most of the salads are like a basic potato salad made with various chopped meats (smoked chicken & pork) and vegetables. Most of the salads use a cream based dressing rather than a mayonnaise base.

Latvian Bacon Buns (PÓr‚gi)

These buns can be used as appetizers, as part of a light lunch (with, say, a cup of bouillon), or as part of a party table. They are best straight from the oven, but can be frozen and re-heated. They are absolutely delicious! - more -
