more Finnish food
Chris ordered Baltic herring last night! Another dish of small, whole fish. You can emulate this meal by ordering the smelt basket at the Red Arrow diner in ManchVegas.
The boxes of Tippaleipä have appeared recently in the shops in time for Vappu, May Day. The Tippaleipä are akin to our fried dough, complete with powdered sugar. My friend, Mari, explained that "tippa" means drop and that the dough is dropped into hot oil. Mari also told me about the Finnish expression, "NAISILLA ON TIPPALEIPÄAIVOT" meaning that a woman's brain is very complicated.
