Baking of Dzūkian buns

There are just a few bakers left who know how to made Dzūkian banda. And the ones who mix the batter, which is made from buckwheat flour, soured milk, eggs and butter, in one direction in the bowl. Why in one direction? No one knows. That’s the tradition. You can make the batter with buckwheat flour and put it into the oven yourself, and while you’re waiting for it to bake, you can listen to stories about the traditions of Dzūkija cuisine and the secrets of mushrooming.
