Finnish cuisine

Like a good fashion accessory, boiled potatoes go with everything

Behold, the Finnish national dish: boiled potatoes.

Well, I suppose there are other more elaborate dishes out there but I’m all about keeping it real. What I always ate as a child was boiled potatoes with something.

I was convinced for the longest time that Finns actually invented the potato.

You would imagine that I would have developed some sort of resentment for it but the one thing I always craved for on returning from the UK is potatoes. None of those saggy chips for me, I wanted a lovely big pot of freshly boiled new potatoes. With dill. And Baltic herring.

Proper hermit food.
