Nowe Latko - it’s a ceremonial bread baked during Christmas and New Year celebrations in region of Kurpie. It was in the shape of an oval on which silhouettes of the landlord surrounded by poultry: geese, ducks and chickens, were placed. The symbolic circle, according to folk beliefs, was supposed to protect life and guarantee the farmstead’s prosperity.
