Multi-cultural Easter weekend in Finland
Here in Finland there is a colorful mix of religions: Christians, evangelists and the Orthodox Church. ⛪️ Most Finns, however, belong to Christianity. How the religions differ, so are the customs at Easter, of which, due to Corona, you have only heard very little this year! 🦠
I spent Easter Sunday with my exchange girls Laura (Portugal) Aria (Mexico) and Suvi (Finland) with a wonderful dinner. 😋 Each of us has tried to bring his local customs into the food.
Main course 🍽 cold Austrian platter, mixed salad, roasted vegetables and “bacalhau à brás” from Portugal
Desserts 🍮 typically Finnish at Easter is Mämmi (baked malt pudding) with vanilla sauce and pasha (yoghurt curd cream with fruits), Germstriezel and from Portugal 🇵🇹 “salame de chocolate”
Also an original Finnish @fazersuomi nougat could not be missing, which is hand-filled into a real chicken egg and then peeled like a real egg 🥚. You can watch the video here: https://youtu.be/NPvtCcINJlI
Finally, we dared to try fiery sweets from Mexico 🇲🇽 The four of us discussed the Finnish Easter customs in a cozy atmosphere.
