Menus have become a launching ground of advertisement for local growers and producers. Is the local movement a good thing? Yes, you bet it is! Locally grown and made products are the epitome of freshness. Buying them helps to keep local businesses thriving. But, as a chef I feel menus need not describe every local products point of origin and not feel that you are trapped in a local movement.

As a blogger for the Helsinki Secret Residence, I was able to experience, as a local, the food, culture and beautiful nature of this city and its surrounding areas. Here in this post I share my Helsinki highlights with you all.
Chef Franco Lania’s version of Eggplant Parmigiana is much lighter, naturally gluten-free and more akin to a side dish than it is to a main course. Why not give it a try?
Jädelino is a quaint, friendly gelateria that serves top quality, homemade Italian ice cream in the the Teurastamo district of Helsinki. The flavors at Jädelino are very creative. I had a peanut butter-olive oil gelato that was extraordinary. The pistachio (made with an imported pistachio base from Sicily) and the tiramisu gelato are fantastic as well. I’ll be back! Once you’ve taste their delicious ice creams, you’ll be back too.
I had the distinct pleasure of working at the event with two very talented and highly accredited Tunisian chefs- Rafik Tlatli and Mounir Le Baroque. The best thing about working with chefs from other cultures beside your own, is the great enthusiasm that can be generated through a mutual admiration toward each other’s cuisine.
