Has The Local Movement Gone To Far?

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.

Jädelino Gelateria: A Cool Taste of Italy in Finland

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.
