Activities for all friends of nature

Herring party at Vimpasaari

Herring has always been one of the basic ingredients for coastal area food. You can have it salted, cooked, fried, smoked, grilled etc. Herring in its many forms has always been served as both a festive and everyday dish.

So what is the herring friends evening about? It's hospitality. It is an honour that our guests are enjoying themselves. The table is full of food and drinks and the conversation flows. Toasts are made but rarely without a short speech. Singing and dancing are a natural part of the evening, having fun together is part of the Karelian culture.

Our island dinner consists of various local dishes made of herring, for instance broiled baltic herring, herring stew, slow-cooked herring, spicy herring and a gravy salmon or herring. All this delicious fish is served with braised vegetables, Rakinkotka potatoes and local country bread.  Dessert is a triple chocolate cheesecake with coffee and tea. Sounds delicious? You are welcome to join in.
