Topic Food

Who doesn't like food?

For me a cultural shock was when I wanted to try finnish food and it had no flavor or too much. There is this Finnish sweet named Salmiakki that is in most of the sweets. 

Another benefit of living with that many people in an international dormitory is that we do many international dinners where everyone cooks a dish from their country and then we share it. 

This year I have learnt so many new dishes to cook which are delicious, and of course other ones which are not that good in my opinion. 

Timing is another factor. In Finland the eating hours are "too early" for me, but one gets used to it quick enough. Because of that, at the beginning I used to have two lunches and almost two dinners.
