Hi, my name is Marja and I live in Tampere. As a photographer and cook book writer, I have written and photographed six cook books. Cooking has always been my great passion since a child.

In the past 20 years I have had dozens of cooking courses about Mediterranean and Finnish cooking. I've travelled a lot and always been interested in other countries' cultures and cooking.

Now, I would like to get the visitors acquainted with Scandinavian food and especially with the best Finnish delicacies such as various kinds of fish, berries, mushrooms and deserts.

Where you'll be

I love our beautiful Market Hall in Tampere, the biggest one in Scandinavia. There is a lot of small charming shops with all kinds of delicacies. I will tell you about them and we taste some of them and then you can do some shopping.

After the Market Hall we will go to the market of Laukontori by the lake of Pyhäjärvi. You can taste there Finnish streetfood while looking at the beautiful lake.

For nearly two hours Marja made us discover sweet and savory specialties (cheese, fish etc ...). She did everything to translate because we are French it was really appreciated. We had a good time, it's a nice way to discover Tampere. Again thank you for all the attention you have brought to our arrival, it is a very beautiful memory.
