Finland: Discover Finland’s Culinary CultureLike0

Explore Finnish Recipes

Finns appreciate simplicity and honesty in all things. The same goes for their cooking; gimmicks and frills are simply not in their nature. Everything starts with clean ingredients, and less is usually more.

Best of all, we have started to appreciate local produce and traditions more and more. Finnish modesty has taken a back seat while a healthy pride for their cuisine has emerged. Now is the time to take a gastronomic journey to Finland.

AUTHENTICALLY LOCAL

When it comes to ingredients and recipes, each region has its own delicious character. They are fiercely loyal to their culinary roots and proud of their local traditions.

Although you can buy just about anything your heart desires in Finland these days, go native the next time you are there, and you will be in for a treat.

PURITY

Finland is a haven of clean and naturally nutrient- rich foods. The long summer days and cool temperatures enhance the aromas and pigments in wild berries. The real benefits of the Finnish wild berry are, in addition to its northern location, clean soil, clean air and clean water. The unique aroma and the colours are produced by flavonoids and other polyphenols. Finns scour their vast forests for these delicious treasures along with tasty mushrooms and fresh wild herbs.

  • This is for those who give everything they’ve got to make their lives as beautiful as their dreams... and for the friends who stick... for what’s real and what's not...
You will find them in the little things... and little moments. Now more than ever. 
That's when you know 💫 
Happy Palm Sunday 🙂
  • Woke up this morning feeling a sudden disconnection.
There’s power in disconnection.
When you separate yourself from the world for a while, you’ll figure out what’s feeding ur soul, what’s entertaining ur ego, what’s nothing but a distraction... and then you find exactly where your alignment is.
  • Happy whatever f**** day it is 🤷‍♀️
  • Someone said to me “The strong woman you are becoming will cost you people, relationships, spaces, outings and material things. Always choose her over everything!” And so, I did. 💫
  • I’ve always thought you should be able to freeze time... This way you could hit the pause button at a really good point in your life so that nothing changes. 
Being in the Arctic. Pause. 
Happy Sunday 💫
  • I read something today that says “what you hide in your heart... shows in your eyes” and I smiled. I’m counting down the days to be able to say, we made it through the storm. 
I’m optimistic about our future and the future of our business... and pray we all find that place of peace where the chaos inside of us is understood... Whoever you are, wherever you are.

  • In the midst of chaos with what’s happening around the world, I hope you always find the courage to keep living and love deeply in a world that is slowly failing to do so... 💫
  • Before taking off on our TJD series, I got the chance to enjoy a family break at Zaya Nurai thanks to @experiencemuse. MUSE had curated this bespoke experience, knowing that part of unwinding for me, is spending quality time with my family. Can’t wait to meet our new guest travelers in Finland!  #experienceMUSE
  • “The question is not how to get cured, but how to live... for she was always fighting a battle but her smile would never tell you so... and that’s how she created Neverland”
  • ‘When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes.
When you get photograph people in black and white, you photograph their soul’

Probably will delete this... but for now... I’m loving it.
  • What makes you happy? They say that every time you are happy, you are on your path. So be aware of the moments where you feel the most happiest... and hold on to it 💫
  • Shoutout to all the shy, introverted, empathic, social awkward souls who are pushing past their comfort zone to share love with the world and detaching themselves from fearful thoughts and using their energy to believe instead of worrying. 👊🏻
