We serve delicious meals based on Finnish traditions and we prepare most of the food by the fire. There are long traditions of hunting and fishing in Finland. We either smoke or flame a fish which give a special flavors for food. Sautéed reindeer is the best known dish based on fresh reindeer meat.
Various species of mushrooms grow plentiful in Finnish forests, e.g. chanterelles and fungis. we use mushrooms in soups, sauces and pie fillings, or simply fried in a pan with onions as a side dish.
Traditional campfire snack include coffee or herbal drink with traditional salty”Karelian pasty” or sweet “pulla”. Pasties are are made from a thin rye crust with a filling of rice. Pulla is a sweet bread which by us includes wild berries.
Arctic wild berries are distinctively featured in Finnish cuisine with their strong flavour and high nutrient content. Wild blueberries, raspberries and lingonberries are found almost in every part of Finland, while cloudberries, cranberries, arctic brambles and sea buckthorns grow on more specific areas. Blueberry soup and Blueberry pie are traditional Finnish desserts.
