Tasty secrets of the Ambassador's chef published

The chef of the Ambassador's residence, Sini Kiialainen, has published her first cookbook Kuura – New Nordic Cuisine. The book, which summons Sini's vision of Finnish cuisine, was launched last Thursday.

Sini moved to London for love and work already at the age of 18. Since, she has made an impressive career in London's restaurant scene. Most recently, as the chef for Finnish Ambassador, Sini has had a wonderful opportunity to cherish Ambassador's international guests with Nordic flavours.  Sini's dishes have always received spontaneous and delighted compliments.

Now Sini's northern food secrets are neatly in covers. Kuura – New Nordic Cuisine brings traditional Finnish and Nordic cuisines with contemporary twist available for everyone.

The launch of Kuura was held in the Ambassador's residence. Canapés created by Sini gave a peek into the book and as a special treat Pekka Pellinen, Global Mixologist for Finlandia Vodka, had created a Kuura-cocktail for the event.
