Food from Finland

My friend (and boss!) organises regular craft afternoons at her home, and she always chooses a food theme so everyone brings food for a big dinner party in the evening. This weekend we will be cooking Finnish food. I've looked up some recipes on the internet, but was wondering if anyone has recommendations for a Finnish dish that is relatively easy to cook/prepare...?


(By the way, it's Autumn here in Melbourne at the moment - I thought this might help to guide the selection of seasonal ingredients .....)

Any suggestions will be very welcome!

Hi Juddie,
How about Gloggi (the only Finnish food/beverage I can think of)? Lovely for these cool wintry days. xK

finnish food! oh boy.. hmm, some "traditional" ones could be for example gravlax with rye bread, (and if you like, with sauce that you can mix with soft cheese, like mascarpone and horseradish..)

but hey, i just found this: http://www.finnguide.fi/finnishrecipes/recipe.asp?c=5&t=&p=164

that Lohikeitto (salmonsoup) is one of my favorites:)

;-)

thank you for your nice comment on my blog!
