Didžkukuliai (grated potato dumplings with meat), mostly going by the name Cepelinai, is probably the most popular Lithuanian dish. Although now it is considered to be traditional Lithuanian cuisine, potatoes were only brought to Lithuania in the 17th century and only started being used in cooking in the 19th century. Cepelinai are large dumplings of grated potatoes in the shape of zeppelins (from the German: Zeppelin;) and have a meat filling in the middle (vegetarians can choose a curd stuffing). They are served with sour cream, fatty bacon and mushroom sauce. As you may imagine, it is quite a stodgy dish and the large number of calories can be a real challenge if you are used to a lighter diet. Photo: Bearas.
