    How to Cook dishes from Finland


    Finland In 2005, the then French President, Jacques Chirac, described Finnish cuisine as the worst in Europe. Of course, while he is entitled to his opinion, others do have different opinions, and many people think that Finnish cuisine has much to offer.

    Traditional Finnish cuisine shares much with German cuisine, Russian cuisine, and Swedish cuisine, although it tends to differ from Russian cuisine by using little or no sour cream (smetana), and from Swedish cuisine by being less sweet.

    Some things to particularly look out for in Finnish dishes, are the use of wholemeal (barley, oats and rye) and berries (blueberries, cloudberries, lingonberries and sea buckthorn) as an ingredient in many dishes. You will also observe that dishes from western Finland tend to use meat and fish more prominently, whereas dishes from eastern Finland tend to emphasize mushrooms and vegetables.

    Some popular Finnish recipes and dishes include:
    • Graavilohi - Raw salmon cured with salt, sugar and dill.

    • Hernekeitto - A soup made from green peas, pork and mustard. It is often eaten on Thursdays with pancakes for dessert.

    • Kaalikääryleet - Cabbage rolls (cabbage leaves stuffed with fillings), often served with lingonberry jam.

    • Kalakukko - Fish (vendace, perch or salmon) baked inside a loaf of bread. Sometimes pork with potato or rutabaga may be substituted for fish.

    • Kylmäsavustettu lohi - Cold smoked salmon.

    • Leipäjuusto (also known as "Juustoleipä") - A sort of pancake made from Finnish squeeky cheese (a cheese made from the rich milk of a cow which has recently calved). It can be eaten hot or cold.

    • Lihapullat - Meatballs.

    • Mashed potato.

    • Rössypottu - A stew made from blood pudding, pork and potatoes.
