Finnish culinary culture is infused with the natural flavours of the northern latitudes. It tells the story of a people who went from forest livelihoods to active interaction with neighbouring countries. Finnish cuisine is notable for generally combining traditional country fare and haute cuisine with contemporary continental style cooking. Finnish food culture is multidimensional. Its cuisine characteristics are strongly Scandinavian but separated from other Scandinavian countries due to its eastern influences.

Overall it is Finland’s Nordic location, with its snowy, freezing winters, pure soil and ground waters as well as long, light summer days which gives the Finnish cuisine its special, fresh taste. Fish, game and berries are characteristic of Finnish food culture. Finnish professionals have placed Finland on the gastronomic world map and made the capital, Helsinki, one of the globe’s most intriguing, trend-setting cities.
