With such a deep connection to local ingredients, the taste of Estonian cooking can change a lot depending on where you go. With 3,800 km of coastline, Estonian cooking offers loads of coastal delicacies of fish and seafood in the north and in the islands. In addition to fish, cuisine in Northern Estonia traditionally combines potatoes, barely and greenhouse-grown produce. In Southern Estonian, you can eat your way around the Lake Peipus region and tour the Onion Route, where you'll find loads of onion-based dishes. The onion pies are not to be missed!
Estonian cuisine, with its international influences, retains a signature character thanks to pure, local elements. These 'superfoods' are fresh from the forests and fields, bursting with vitamins and rich in colour. Savour them harvested during peak season, or preserved in traditional jams and juices throughout the rest of the year.
