Here is an extremely easy and quick recipe! A perfect side dish with main course, these cucumbers can stay in your fridge for 2-3 days.
It was around last January when I started to think about ways to learn more traditional Finnish recipes. My language skills were not good enough to test if the online recipes I found were good or not. Plus, I had already realised that learning a recipe from a friend by cooking together was a lot fun and the best way. So I decided to apply this method in a context further than Helsinki, and I started my little trips around Finland in search for recipes.
As I wrote in my previous post yesterday, exactly 1 year ago, I started blogging about food. I could never imagine how much it would change my life. I could never imagine that baking would be my whole life and that I would even think of a career with it.. But here I am, after a year’s adventure of baking and cooking – I finally became comfortable in the kitchen.
It was about 2 weeks before I came to Helsinki in 2010. I realised that I had absolutely no idea on how Finnish cuisine was. I made so much research about many aspects of my new home, but forgot the food part! I guess I thought that food ought not be a hard topic, that I could find something to eat after all. Of course I had in my mind the regular stereotypes, like, “oh, they eat reindeer there..”. But then, I checked wikipedia.
