This winter, the EUPOP-funded “Taste Europe” video campaign showcasing food cultures of different EU countries has been circulating on Chinese social media channels.
Finland’s episode was published last week. In this video, Finnish delicacies are presented as both easy to make and doable as the necessary raw materials are easy to find in China: cinnamon buns, Karelian pies, gravlax, malt bread and oatmeal.
The episode was filmed on location at Beijing’s only Finnish restaurant, Moi Restaurant and Lounge, but of course, the story begins and ends in a sauna – like a real Finnish story should.
