You will learn more about Lappish cuisine and, while the food will be cooking, you will be enjoy a starter platter prepared by me. No dinner is complete without a dessert! I will serve you home cooked berry pie, which is made from hand-picked berries from local, Finnish forests.

I want my guests to taste authentic Finnish food - something what locals eat daily, something that can be found in every Finnish kitchen.

Amazing evening, on time pick up, relaxed and friendly vibe, but fully knowledgeable. Great company, by hosts and guests, and great food. I would definitely recommend this for people visiting the area.

Here's a culturally immersive experience you cannot leave Lapland without! To me, one of the best ways to really get to know a culture and its people is through food...and Agnese and Sandra did just that! Very hospitable people, I honestly felt like I left the experience having gained two new Lappish friends. It was my mom's 70th birthday, and they couldn't have made it any more of a special experience for her. It was as if she had a mini cooking/birthday party :) They are very genuine people who just want to share their love for cooking and hosting. Good food, and even better stories shared! We could not have left any more satisfied than we were! From pick up to our hotel, to drop off, it was all done in perfect timing. I HIGHLY recommend this experience versus going to some fancy restaurant. With them, the experience is REAL, and you get to learn how to make the food yourself! You will see how fresh, and simple good food should be, and how simple and genuine Lappish people are :)

Agnese and Sandra were phenomenal! If you are in Rovaniemi for holiday, you HAVE to do this experience. Sandra picked us up promptly from our accommodations, and then we began cooking at their home. The food was fantastic, and the company even better. They were so fun to talk to, and it felt like we were truly becoming friends with locals. Further, after dinner (reindeer, appetizers of local origin, and apple crumble), Sandra offered to take us to try to see the northern lights, and built us a fire and brought hot tea. This whole evening was our favorite of our trip, and was an experience we will not forget. Thank you!!! ❤️

A slight change in the agenda here as Agnese was able to upgrade the cooking event to being a private dining experience in the forest and boy what an upgrade this was. We were collected from our accommodation and taken to a lovely location / local building in the forest with a magical feel to it. Outside there was a wonderful view across the forest and the sunset in the distance, whilst inside, it was lovely and warm with a cooking fire to one side and a magnificent marble table. Ready for the start, Sandra and Agnese guided us through the food for starters along with local drinks (non alcoholic thanks as we have an early start in the morning), we’ll, it started like that and it just got better, we were able to find out more about the local ways of food, driving, long and dealing with the wildlife. The things these ladies go through to collect the berries is just amazing. The food was truly excellent and so glad we could cheat and not cook it ourselves, although that would have been an experience, but tonight, this was great and e really enjoyed it. Flavours that stick our in particular are the sugared pine cones, the blueberry pie, the mushroom sauce (Awesome) and the tea. We really enjoyed the personal service and would recommend this experience if you’re interested in trying new flavours in a great surrounding. We both left stuffed and guilty there was still lots of food left, sorry.
