Voisilmäpulla – Finnish “Butter Eye Buns”

Finnish cuisine is full of different kinds of delicious “pulla”s. These are basically buttery buns with cardamom, which is the most Nordic ingredient ever. Some also have cinnamon, some have more butter than the others, some have extra sugar on top, some have cream in between… Their common characteristic is that they are all extremely delicious and they all look very elegant.

Vanilla And Black Pepper Infused Canola Oil – And Vanilla / Honey Vinaigrette

A few months ago I was watching a BBC documentary about most famous spices in the world. In the third episode, while I was watching vanilla cultivation, I had an idea: how does vanilla taste in savoury dishes?

After a bit of research, I got inspired by a chef and started to work on this olive oil infusion.

Gluten Free Thursday: Quinoa Balls With Roasted Pepper Sauce

I recently made a big confession to myself. I don’t like quinoa as much as I convinced myself. I don’t hate it either.

And these balls are exactly like that, with lots and lots of other ingredients!

Brioche Buns With Cheese And Parsley – Smell The Butter

The smell of butter inside a warm and cosy bakery in the middle of winter.. It reminds me so much of my childhood. When I was a kid, I didn’t like having breakfast at home before the school. So my mother would buy me one “pogaca”, a kind of flaky pastry that is similar brioche and I would eat that as breakfast, accompanied by that lovely butter smell all around me. Later on when I was a teenager, during high school years, we would go to the bakery behind the school building every morning with my friends sharing the same school bus. The bus would leave us outside the building, so we would first go to the bakery and eat a pogaca fresh out of the oven and then go inside the building..
