Have you heard about šakotis? More than a dessert. A special souvenir, thousands of which travel from Lithuania to foreign countries every year. During holidays, this huge cake covered with branches always graces our tables. Even people holding modern celebrations always end the evening with this delicious treat made according a recipe that monks developed in the 15th century. Seeing how it is made is also worthwhile, and there are bakers in Lithuanian villages who are happy to show you the complicated process.
