Finnish Baking & History in the Timmins Community Gardens
Meals are shared experiences and presented with care; whether it is a morning table laid out with whole rye bread, cheeses and fruit, or a sit-down evening dinner. Food is considered much more than nourishment; it is part of the Finnish identity and Eliisa wants to share that mindset with you! Join her for a virtual picnic and learn about her journey in cooking, her Finnish background and how she got involved in the Anti-Hunger Campaign in Northern Ontario. Once you've shared your backgrounds with her, Eliisa will dive right into the cooking lesson; explaining the ingredients, the process and any tips on making munkki, a Finnish Doughnut hole. During this time, Eliisa will continue to engage with you and learn your cooking traditions and experiences. To end your experience, Eliisa will give you a virtual tour of the community gardens in Timmins, and how a community can come together to end hunger in their area and live more sustainably.
