Ilus Eesti, beautiful Estonia. My family's homeland. Estonia's countryside and people have an endearing gentleness about them which you fall in love with slowly and imperceptibly. I have nothing but respect and admiration for Estonians' courage and determination to survive despite centuries of repression, tyranny and foreign occupation. This blog showcases all the things I love about Estonia and seeks to enlighten readers about everything this unique country has to offer.

The History of Estonian Bread
Estonian bread is sacred - in fact in old times if you dropped a piece of bread on the floor the custom was to pick it up and kiss it! Bread has been a central part of Estonian life for centuries and no meal is complete without out it. Today, Estonian bread is still cherished and given the respect it deserves. It is very unique in terms of flavour and undoubtedly among some of the tastiest bread in the world. Usually the darker the bread, the better!
