    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.

      Product Description:

      Beatrice Ojakangas, the oldest of ten children, came by it naturally—the cooking but also the pluck and perseverance that she's served up with her renowned Scandinavian dishes over the years. In the wake of the Moose Lake fires and famine of 1918, Ojakangas tells us in this delightful memoir-cum-cookbook, her grandfather sent for a Finnish mail-order bride—and got one who’d trained as a chef. 

      Ojakangas’s stories, are, unsurprisingly, steeped in food lore: tales of cardamom and rye, baking salt cake at the age of five on a wood-burning stove, growing up on venison, making egg rolls for Chun King, and sending off a Pillsbury Bake Off–winning recipe without ever making it. And from here, how those early roots flourished through hard work and dedication to a successful (but never easy) career in food writing and a much wider world, from working for pizza roll king Jeno Paulucci to researching food traditions in Finland and appearing with Julia Child and Martha Stewart—all without ever leaving behind the lessons learned on the farm. As she says, “first you have to start with good ingredients and a good idea.”

      Chock-full of recipes, anecdotes, and a kind humor that bring to vivid life the Finnish culture of northern Minnesota as well as the wider culinary world, Homemade delivers the savory and the sweet in equal measures and casts a warm light on a rich slice of the country’s cooking heritage.
