Tourism Development Bureau (RTDB) has developed the “Delightfully Delicious

residents and foreign visitors to the use of Latvian products in the preparation of
outstandingly delicious meals.
Every month, Riga’s best chefs from 25 restaurants and cafés will include dishes on

products or ingredients. In March, these will be Latvian dairy products, in April –
birch and maple sap, in May – spring greens, in June – strawberries, in July – new
potatoes, in August - forest delicacies (mushrooms and berries), in September – the
Latvian range of autumnal delights, October will be the month of fish, while in
November we will enjoy Riga’s Black Balsam and dishes from the biggest berry in
Latvia - the marrow. The culmination of the project will be in December, which will
be a month of taste surprises with special festive restaurant offers. These will combine
the very best of the ingredients enjoyed throughout the year with special masterpieces
created by the chefs.
