Each nation has it`s 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 habbits and traditions we firstly 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, that each contains different products. Meat, dairy, gastronomy, vegetable and fish pavilions.
Strolling through the market we get to know ingredients of Latvian cuisine. We will discuss eating habits, traditions and values, that are taught from the childhood.
On our way we interact with local salesman and sample some of traditional Latvian delicacy and drinks. Personality and 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 typical Latvian main meal, soup and dessert!
Enjoy 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!
