Easter eggs

Easter is a wonderful moment to meet with family and friends and by bringing a beautiful Latvian Easter tradition to MAARA, this get-together has become an artful afternoon full of laughter and joy.

Today we were “painting” Easter eggs with flowers, leaves and onion skins, which is an absolutely eco-friendly way to get very unique Easter eggs. There are many more techniques and recipes in the Latvian Easter cookbooks for getting different colors, tones and patterns, but those I will need to find out for next year. However, coloring eggs with this technique each one becomes a small piece of art and it almost hurts to break their beautiful shell. Although, they are delicious, too.

Happy Easter everyone!
