Once again, Taste of Helsinki hosted the Suomi-Ruotsi Kokkimaaottelu. After a quick sprint around Stockmann Herkku, both teams competed in a battle over three rounds. The competition was fierce, but in the end, it was Team Finland that took the prize... Onnea!

This battle was made possible through the support of the Finnish and Swedish culinary teams, our judging panel, Electrolux, Stockmann Herkku, Arla, Arvo Kokkonen, and of course our Theatre host Pipsa Hurmerinta... Kiitos kaikille!

Suomi-Ruotsi -kokkimaaottelussa käytiin torstaina ja perjantaina jännittävä kolmen erän taisto! Kisa käytiin tiukoissa tunnelmissa, mutta lopulta voiton vei Suomi!

Mira and I would like to thank everyone who came to this year's Taste of Helsinki festival.

We had our highest ever attendance with 11,000 visitors enjoying the amazing selection of food and drinks.

We are grateful for 3-days of sunshine and the amazing atmosphere that you all helped to create, kiitos paljon!

Hyvää Juhannusta Kaikille!
