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.
