Searching for summer and Valmiermuiza:  A terrace tour of Riga
RIGA - As the weather heats up (cools down, then heats up again), I took myself on a little terrace tour of Riga to find the best spots for summer – when it finally arrives and stays. First on the agenda was The Flying Frog on the corner of Elizabetes and Antonijas streets, one of the most beautiful areas in Riga - the Art Nouveau district. I met a friend for a late lunch on a rather ov...

What goes with Latvian saki?
ALUKSNE - It would be a shame to waste the twelve liters of milk my goats give every day. But there’s only so much my dogs - Ellie, Jeb - and I can drink.

Armed with soap, warm water and a washboard
ALUKSNE - A new chapter is starting at Lightning Tree Farm: I have just accepted responsibility for the upkeep of another, disused farm. The deal is: I provide security and maintenance of the buildings and in return I can apply my agricultural ideology across the Latvian countryside. This new farm will be run using old fashioned methods, crafts and tools, with one major difference: I will b...
