If there’s one dish that defines Lithuanian cuisine then it’s the ‘Cepelinai’.
The ultimate Lithuanian ‘comfort food’.
A Cepelinai is basically a potato dumpling filled with meat and floating in a creamy bacon or mushroom sauce. Described aptly by my guide book as ‘artery hardening’ the Cepelinai comes from the rural parts of Lithuania. Taking several hours to make it was perfect for the cold winter days when it was better to be indoors cooking something warm to eat.
