Your hosts

One of my hobbies has been for 35 years gold panning. I got the chance to join in my aunt's husband Jaska's gold group 1984. Ours six gold conquests has been in the scenery of the Ivalo River and Saariselkä Hills. My colleaque Kristian: I have been cooking what my family & friends eat for dinner for some 40 years, focusing on fish, game and ethnic food. I always cook with fresh ingredients and never use any processed foodstuff. I'm very picky about proper handling of the food and the cleanliness of my kitchen. I like to combine campfire and cooking to create for you a wildlife kitchen experience offering straight from the fire local dishes made of the purest Finnish and Laplandish ingredients. The smoky campfire, the cast iron pots and griddles together with clean air and wild nature creates a very special Golden Taste of Lapland.
