Medieval Lithuanian nobility didn’t eat fresh salad and vegetables. Nobleman Buguslav Radvila was the first to bring fresh greens on nobility’s table in the 17th century. Special tray was custom-made for Buguslav’s salad.
Lithuanians still adore rye bread, which became a staple food in the 14th century. Pagan Lithuanians sacrificed it to the Gods of Earth, Fire and Water. Pagan also already knew how to preserve meat by smoking it. Such delicacies were served to our only King Mindaugas.
