As in the Nordics, there has been a surge of interest from Baltic folk to identify more strongly with their food history—and display it proudly. This book celebrates that, identifying traditional dishes from each of the three countries and adapting them to create accessible and delicious recipes suitable for home kitchens the world over.

Rather than strive to be authentic to the core, Bajada has selectively picked the best for international palates, curating a mix that is a combination of traditional and modern. At its heart, Baltic shows the commonality with other northern European cuisines—what's cooking is dictated by the produce at hand, as well as the enthusiasm of chefs and cooks there. Baltic's package is also visually beautiful, with the author capturing the color and vibrancy of the produce, local culture and landscapes as these countries emerge from nearly fifty years of Soviet rule, reconnect with the past, and embrace new promise for the future.
