Welcome to Enjoy Authentic Nordic Cuisine - Tasty, Healthy and Local!

I am happy to invite you to enjoy an exceptional Nordic dinner experience in Helsinki. I and my wife are both passionate about good food and love to cook local flavors for new international friends.

Our home is in a traditional 1930's wooden house in a very beautiful district. During the evening I and my wife prepare a delicious three course meal from classic Finnish ingredients. You can enjoy a glass of wine or beer by a cozy fireplace while you wait a 4-star meal is prepared for you.

Starter and dessert are based on local specialties (seasonal wild mushrooms, fish, and berries) and a main course is always fresh local fish (by request vegetarian option possible). If you wish you can also get hands on with cooking and learn some secrets of traditional Nordic cuisine. Over the meal we have a good time and you can learn about Finnish lifestyle, people, and history.

Tervetuloa! - Welcome!!!
