“Is Baltic the New New Nordic?”

Dig into a delicious story about Uoksas - the connoisseurs of Baltic cuisine - in the newest edition of the Wizz Magazine.

“Despite fierce competition from heavyweights across the continent, Baltic cuisine is finally hitting the headlines”, says the introduction to an article about the Baltic cuisine and Uoksas, one of the best restaurants in Kaunas we’ve mentioned many times and hope to do it even more often in the future. The story was published in the December-January 2017 edition of the Wizz Magazine available for free in all Wizzair flights.

The article springs off a fact that, for the first time, Baltic restaurants were included in the prominent White Guide Nordic.

“The Baltics are really exciting emerging foodie destinations, with a lot in common with the Nordic countries,” says Peter Hansson, Managing Director of White Guide Nordic. “So it’s a natural step for us to start including them.”

The executive chef of Uoksas, one of the two restaurants that were included in the guide (the second being Monte Pacis), Arturas Naidenko, says the listing will help in their efforts to rebrand Baltic cuisine. As the headline of the Uoksas entry in the guide says “Creative kitchen with top potential”, there’s no doubt about that!
