IT'S TIME FOR OUR SECOND INTERNATIONAL DINNER OF THE SEMESTER!!
This time we'll offer you a taste of Finnish culinary experience.
Finnish food is traditionally made from the products of the earth, whatever is offered by the agriculture, mostly root vegetables and other things you can grow or hunt in your own backyard.
For this reason, the food of Finland might be considered plain by some cultures as not many strong flavored herbs are grown in the harsh conditions of Finland.
There are also some peculiarities in the Finnish food culture, as harsh times have forced the Finns to make food out of ingredients left over of other food. A good example of this is Mämmi which is made from rye malt left over from making home made beer and served from a box made from the bark of a birch tree.
Even though the Easter is coming, we promise we won't force you to eat this easter delicatessen, though due to the appearance of the dish, it is a testament of the Finnish humour to offer it to foreigners, just to see the disbelief on the faces of the guests.
