Food traditions

From Elävän perinnön wikiluettelo

Food is closely linked to survival, but also to being together – food brings people together to share experiences and practise traditions. Every country has its own food culture, featuring certain basic raw ingredients, preparation methods, specific spices and seasonings and even eating habits. What, when and how we eat in Finland provides information about the location of our country, as well as about Finnish nature, society, history, identity and culture.
