… A little sweet, a little sour, a little salty - call it Lithuanian umami flavour

…the most aesthetic cold soup in the world

…unpronounceable

Journalists and Influencers alike have lots to say when it comes to Lithuania’s signature soup. And for those who’ve already tasted the traditional version, why not try cold soup with boiled crawfish tails, or with raspberry beer, or with cucumber ice-cream?

Dating back to the 17th century, this cold beet root soup is very much a seasonal dish and is made from healthy local products – beetroot, fresh cucumber, green herbs, boiled eggs and kefir. And despite its luminous pink color, you’ll find that all the soup’s ingredients are completely natural.

Truly local, seasonal, and brimming with authentic flavors – these are the defining characteristics of Lithuanian cuisine, be it modern or traditional. So why not start your Šaltibarščiai journey today!
