Although I did not find this book to be as authentically Lithuanian as Isabele Sinkeviciute's book Lithuanian Cookery, I did find it rather worthwhile. I am a first generation Lithuanian-American, born in Detroit, Michigan, who grew up eating the food of her Lithuanian born mother and father. The author of this book does not have a typical Lithuanian name, described on the back cover, as coming from a "prominent Polish-Lithuanian family". She is also the author of A Treasury of Polish Cuisine: Traditional Recipes in Polish and English (Hippocrene Bilingual Cookbooks). I believe, therefore, that some of the recipes in this book may have more of a Polish cooking influence than other Lithuanian cookbooks. She does include in this book, however, some very traditional Lithuanian recipes such as Potato Zeppelins (Cepelinai), Cranberry Pudding (Kisielius), Honey Liquer (Krupnikas), Lithuanian Meat Pockets (Lietuviski Koldunai) Cold Summer Beet Soup (Salti Barsciai) and Potato Pudding (Kugelis). The recipes are very clearly written and easy to use. There are sections on Appetizers and Breads, Soups, Vegetables and Salad, Aspics, Garnishes & Sauces, Meat Dishes, Poultry & Game Dishes, Fish, Pancakes, Noodle Dishes, Dumplings & Egg Dishes, Cakes & Desserts, Drinks & Cocktails. As you can see, it is rather comprehensive. I would very much recommend it.

HASH(0x9d2081ec) out of 5 stars Very Disappointed 12 Jan. 2009
By Aldona M. Guenter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In retrospect, I should have gone with a Lithuanian cookbook where the author has a Lithuanian name, because I was disappointed to find that less than 1% of the recipes had Lithuanian headings. I found the recipe
"Little Ears" in this book and found it to be nothing like the Little Ears recipe I know, which would be called Ausiukés...little ears where the end product were tied up knots of dough fried in oil and dusted with powdered sugar...yummy! This was a traditional sweet for holidays like Christmas and Easter.

When I ordered this cookbook "Art of Lithuanian Cooking", I expected a real lithuanian cookbook with their proper names. If you want a real lithuanian cookbook, see if you can get a copy of "Popular Lithuanian recipes" by Josephine J. Dauzvardis. I received this cookbook from a very dear friend back in 1982. Its excellent! Anyone who has a lithuanian background and is familiar with the dishes will recognize the recipes right away, because ALL of the recipes have their true lithuanian name right before it, like Kaldunai, Zeppelinai, Kopùstú Sriuba (Sauerkraut soup), Duonoj Keptas Kumpis, Rúg`stus Pienas (Lithuanian Yogurt), and much more.

This book will probably just sit on my shelf. It only cost $10 something, so sending it back wouldn't be worth the postage.

Sincerely,
1st generation born and raised in America

HASH(0x9d208528) out of 5 stars A good gift for a Lithuanian bride in the U.S. 15 July 2009
By Kristan G. Parkhurst - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book as a wedding gift for a Lithuanian bride who has been in the U.S. for 13 years. She always talks about beet and potato soups. She was so pleased and surprised by it. She thinks there are a lot of recepies that go back to her childhood.

HASH(0x9d208420) out of 5 stars Lots of recipes, but not very authentic and poorly explained 15 Feb. 2015
By June Molloy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is not great, particularly if you are new to Lithuanian cooking. There are no pictures whatsoever and the directions are very brief. If you didn't know what you were trying to produce it would be difficult to successfully follow a recipe. Even accepting that traditional dishes can vary from cook to cook, some of the recipes are way off. The recipe for Christmas Eve biscuits does not contain any poppyseeds, which are essential. The šaltibarščiai (cold beet soup) recipe uses prepared borscht (with beef) as a base and contains chicken or beef broth. It suggests toppings of ham, veal or cooked shrimp. Living in Lithuania I have never seen anyone prepare šaltibarščiai this way. It is always completely vegetarian. All that said, the book does contain a large number of recipes and reading it would give those new to Lithuanian cooking an overview of the style of food eaten here.

Okay, my family is Lithuanian on my Dads side. As I grew up for the most part away from them, I missed out on sampling all the yumminess over the years. This cookbook is killer! You want Krupnikas (Boilo)? Yup it's in here. You want Halupkies, yup it's in here too and just as good as your Grandma's or Great Aunties. If your blood stream craves bacon, sour cream, and spuds, you will be in Heaven! BUY THIS BOOK AND GET YOUR GRUB ON!
