The list author says: "Born in Detroit, Michigan to Lithuanian born parents who cooked in the style of those from Lithuania, Poland and other (east of Berlin) countries I am, of course, partial to the food of that region. In this list of wonderful cookbooks I include at least one exclusively Armenian, five Bulgarian, one Czech, two Hungarian, one Latvian, three Lithuanian and two Polish cookbooks available through Amazon.com. The rest are compilations of several country cookbooks. Of course the types of recipes you find from northeastern Europe and the types from the southern region can vary immensely. I love them all and encourage those of you who read this to let me know your own favorites so I may add them to this list."
"As another reviewer described so aptly: "This is a wonderful collection of over 300 recipes from the Lithuanian countryside. More than just a collection of recipes, it includes the cultural and culinary context in which the recipes arise, including notation of regional specialties.""
