Everything tastes better outdoors and the most loved delicacies in Finland are unquestionably the pancakes cooked on an open fire. The formula is rather simple: dough, time and fire – the principal resources we won’t neglect.
There is a bonfire in the woods with wooden seats around it. Fire ﬂames hypnotically and there’s just something very calming in the moment. Cooking with open fire is simple and rewarding – time and smoke give their magical touch to what we are about to enjoy.
The noun for a Finnish pancake varies. Lettu, lätty, plätty, räiskäle, ohukainen. According to folklore we tend to give a range of names for the most beloved matters. And pancakes certainly are one of them.
Our pancakes are cooked the traditional way on an open fire using only the few best ingredients. Cooking by a fire is one of the few skills which is still passed on from a generation to another, a genuinely living tradition which has been practiced since the first flame was once ignited.
We invite you to the Nordic forest to share the fireside with us and enjoy the modest yet glorious taste of Finnish pancakes crowned with sweet jam. Old-style kettle coffee/tea with necessary condiments is naturally also served.
