Young people are always keen to make homemade sushi, non-gluten cakes or bio-burgers with sweet potato fries.
But have you ever heard of something called ‘Sklandrausis’? We want to commemorate Latvian traditions and show you how to make one of Latvia’s most iconic dishes.
Although Sklandrausis is not the go-to dish for many young Latvians, we wanted to try making some ourselves. To our surprise, the ingredients cost only 12 euros (it actually cost €7,34 if you don’t count the wine we drank). We did, however, make the mistake of using wheat flour instead of rye, but the flavor was fascinating anyway. It was easy and fun; I would recommend making this dish to anyone.
We made two separate videos – one for our Latvian audience, and one for our english speaking viewers, featuring Praise Da Lord by A$AP Rocky feat. Skepta. We chose this song because we believe it may have some Latvian folksong elements to it. Maybe it’s the flutes, maybe just the title of the song. Maybe this is A$AP commemorating Latvia’s 100th anniversary, just like us.
