Our thirst meeting Haley, Yeaeun and I went to Essi’s House to learn Finnish and make traditional Finnish sweet bread called Pulla.
Essi bought all the ingredients to prepare Pulla and also she checked the recipe in Internet, so went we arrived we only had to prepare this delicious sweet.
Before started to backing we took tea and coffee and learned the basic Finnish grammar like easy sentences and the different pronunciations. For example:
|Hello||Terve, Moi, hei…|
|Goodbye||Hei hei, moi moi…|
|Good Morning||hyvää huomenta|
Once we learned this sentences was time to start baking! First we prepare the base of the Pulla and then we started to prepare the shapes of this bread to bake them in the oven after.
During this meeting we learned, not only the Finnish languages, also Essi explained us different issues about the Finnish culture and food. She explain us when and how they eat this traditional food and others ones like Karjalanpiirakka (rice pies) or Joulutorttu (Christmas tarts).
Finally, once the Pulla was ready was time to eat! I had never tried this kind of bread before, because in Spain we don’t have it, but was delicious!!
