Latvian cooking tour.
Each nation has its specific cuisine and eating habits so Latvians are not an exception. To explore our cuisine and traditions we invite you to join our Latvian Cooking Tour.
We are passionate gourmets and food lovers. Exploring our eating habits and traditions we first head to Riga Central Market. A special place in daily life and history of Riga. Biggest food market in Europe it consists of five old zeppelin hangars, each containing different products. Meat, dairy, gastronomy, vegetable, and fish pavilions.
Strolling through the market we get to know the ingredients of Latvian cuisine. We will discuss eating habits, traditions, and values, that are taught from childhood.
On our way, we interact with local salesmen and sample some of the traditional Latvian delicacies and drinks. Personality and the ability to be nice is important here, thanks to those qualities you can manage to get the price lower by bargaining too.
You will be given a list of things to be bought and goals to achieve so when done we will head to prepare a typical Latvian main meal, soup, and dessert!
Enjoy the Latvian Cooking Tour and see you in Riga!

Actual preparing of the food will happen in a local home, where your tour guide lives. So this event will have an extra added value of our visitors seeing how we live in Riga. Interacting, preparing food, eating, getting to ask all the questions of interest and having a great time!
