Gastronomic delights the Kotitie way
As our guest, we serve breakfasts at the time you desire, usually 7–10 a.m. The breakfast holds mainly home-made organic local food, for instance home-smoked fish, wild berries we have gathered ourselves, either fresh or frozen, home-made berry powders and smoothies, juices and jams, herbal porridge and our own herbal tea, not forgetting coffee. We locally source eggs, honey, meat and Finnish dairy products. We bake many of the pastries ourselves. Our aim is to provide pure, tasty, diverse and healthy food that provides energy for daily activities.
Dinner comprises food that is prepared using local ingredients and seasonal produce. All meals are prepared by us from start to finish. We usually serve a three-course dinner that is agreed in advance with the guests. Examples of some of our popular menu selections:
- Starter of wild mushroom or garden angelica soup served with home-baked bread, main meal of reindeer and wild mushroom stew accompanied by a vegetable purée, birch-flavoured carrots, lingonberry jam and lettuce, with a dessert of garden angelica pudding served with sea buckthorn honey.
