Bread - the staple of life...ancient and timeless. Latvia - an ancient land steeped in traditions and bread that can be found nowhere else on earth. Here it is still the staple of life and now we bring it to you.
This Dutch-type windmill was built for the Drabeši Manor in the middle of the 19th century. The hosts will not only show you how grain was milled back in the day, but also allow you to try different grades of flour and enjoy a classic miller's lunch - berley-flour porridge with a meaty gravy.
