Estonian Secret: Kohuke. Chocolate Glazed Quark Snack

dsc01450
Kohuke. Chocolate Glazed Quark Snack

Kohuke- chocolate glazed quark snack is very popular dessert for children breakfast.
Kohuke is basically freshly pressed sweet curd covered in chocolate or caramel. There are plain as well as flavoured varieties filled with things like berries, chocolate, coconut and kiwifruit.

Kohuke is popular throughout the Baltic countries and can be found in Russia and other Eastern-European states as well. These little things actually don’t have much of a history – they’re about 70 years old and were something of a cult food during the Soviet regime. They disappeared as soon as they hit the shelves of Soviet stores in the 50s due to the constant shortage,

Because of quark, Kohuke is rich with protein and because of chocolate, it is energy bar:)

Let’s do Kohuke at home as pop-cakes.

Ginger Bread. Piparkook

From the first Advent until Christmas every night Estonian children put their shoe on their windowsill because Päkapikud (little elves) starts visits good children and brings at night into the child slipper, some candy.

Today there are of course discussions:) Is it a good idea, that “Päkapikud” leave candy, maybe it should be carrot or raisins 🙂
And what about “not good” children. But anyway, Christmas time is started and this is means Piparkook!
In Estonian, Piparkook means, in direct translation  – pepper cake. So, nothing about ginger 🙂 Continue reading “Gingerbreads. Piparkoogid.”

Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal Cookies

Do you need baking ideas?
4 ingriedient Oatmeal Cookies is the best for unexpected guest.

Because  11th of November is Mardipäev. And probably in afternoon, bells the ring, and behind the door are singing children…:)

The ritual visit was done, singing. At first, behind the door they asked to be let in, singing. Then danced and asked for bounties (food), singing. At last they thanked and wished luck, e.g. good corn, suitors for the daughter of the family. They cursed the family if the door was not opened and they were not let in, e.g. they wished the family illnesses, hunger and other bad fortune.

The foods of St Martin’s Day were fowl (especially goose), sausages of groat and flour, scon. In the name of St Martin’s Day/Martinmas, Mardipäev, Nov 10 the pagan lore (related to the soul’s time) can redound as well as the Christian tradition. It is possible that an old pagan holiday melted into a Christian saint’s day which was in the same period of time and had a similar name.

Mardus (also marras, margus, mardo) – Estonian fairy of deaths, the predictor of deaths, in the older time probably a dead person (compare with marta – indo-iranian stem for ’mortal’).
Marraskuu (also mardakuu ) – in Finnish ’the month of the dead’, November
Originally, only the men went around as mardid, from the end of the 19th century the girls dressed as men began to do it too. On St Martin’s Day people disguise them into unknown, dark, ugly and furry male beings, using fur coats, tow, birchbark a.s.o. Masks, black and dark clothes can be associated to the cult of the dead, hairiness is associated with fertility. ( text by Taive Särg)

Semolina Mousse. Mannavaht. Roosamanna

My Grandmother called Semolina Mousse as ” Wind Porridge”. Because it is “fills” but does not feed:)
What name to use, it depends on juice.
White Mousse is ” Mannavaht”. And Pink Mousse is ” Roosamanna”, what means ” Pink Mousse”.
