Specially for the Midsummer celebration, known as Saint Jonas’ festival or Dew Holiday, Lithuanian cuisine guru, the chef of restaurant “Sweet Root” Justinas Misius and I created this new #24 photo shoot.
Various shades of green colour and inspiration are promised for those who adore Lithuanian forests and herbs and want to find out when, how and for which dishes to use certain local herbs.
This time I advise you to look at these recipes as the source of new ideas. Most probably only experienced kitchen experts could treat their friends with Justinas’ suggested dinner dishes. Instead of trying to make Justinas’ recipes from A to Z, make just one or another part of it and adapt it creatively. Why not? For example, I will definitely try the nettle and goutweed spread, the dressing for the sturgeon and hazelnut milk with the dessert.
So enjoy my pictures and look for the inspiration, find some good new ideas on how to bring some more variety into your dinner party for friends by making some novel and unusual dishes. Ingredients for some of them you can pick straight from summer field or forest.
