“I’m a passionated cook and foodie from Helsinki. In a continuous search finding fresh food trends and new flavours, I am also loyal to my roots and heritage as one of the cooks in my family. Today us consumers, but also the culinary professionals, are facing the need to rethink our food consumption. Sustainability on mind, vegan cooking and products have found their ways to consumers and restaurants kitchens, foraging and wild food are hottest trends. Seems like there is a need to go back to the roots. Literally.”
