In 2012 Riga was announced the Delightfully Delicious Destination. The year has passed highlighting tastes and seasonal bounties of nature characteristic for Latvia every month. Therefore, it is natural that approaching the New Year, a calendar ''Delightfully Delicious Destination'' for 2013 has been issued, where the best Latvian chefs offer the most delicious nuances of taste combined with products that are characteristic only to Latvia.

May the calendar ''Delightfully Delicious Destination'' be an inspiration for 2013, when restaurants and cafes of Riga will continue strengthening the status of Riga as a citadel for gourmands!
