I am happy to celebrate the birthday of CookingLatvia.com blog - the blog on Latvian culinary culture.
Today my heart was happily singing - the Latvian traditional vegetable tarts "Sklandrauši" got approved into the list of "Europe's Traditional Specialties Guaranteed" http://ej.uz/9ie9. Thus this traditional Western Latvian snack is the FIRST Latvian farm product ("geographical indication") protected at EU level. Here I also discovered (and was really surprised) that EU lawmakers official journal publishes recipes http://ej.uz/sr8b! Who knows what oher great culinary treasurers are hidden in Official Journal of European Union?!
