There is a lot of traditional food in Finland. Most of the Finns like finnish traditional food but for foreigners it can look really disgusting. We wanted to know what finnish people think about their food, so we interviewed people on the street. First we will show you some examples of traditional Finnish food.

Kalakukko is fish inside a bread.



It is a one kind of bun. Inside there is cinnamon and sugar.


It is some kind of porridge you eat in the Eastern time. Water, rye flour, powdered malted rye, salt and the zesting of an Orange. Mämmi looks really bad because of the colour which is black.
