The Finns know how to do it! This fine Scandinavian pancake is served with smoked salmon, fresh herbs and horseradish cream. It is not made in a pan, but in a baking dish in the oven – how convenient!

Finnish oven pancake

No grease on the stove, nobody has to fry while the others are already tucking away the fresh pancakes. The Finnish version is ready after 20 minutes in the oven! So easy!

Piedmontese chocolate pudding with vanilla quince

A beautiful and strong coffee, anyone? Then, after a substantial meal, this specialty from the Piedmont is the right!
