Fare #2 – Helsinki


Fare #2 – Helsinki
€ 14,-

After Istanbul, Fare embarks on a new adventure into the culinary and historical features of a new city, this time it’s the Finnish capital Helsinki.
Fare’s second issue testifies to the hidden riches of this city, unveiling the particularity of its food, history and community life, which all seems to have been influenced by the fact that Helsinki has kept a relatively isolated culture which grew in reaction to centuries of turbulent interactions with its swedish and russian neighbors. Fare provides succinct, useful historical briefings on this while presenting the highlights of its gastronomy including the iconic traditional dish Vorschmack, the historic fish markets such as the Stadin Silakkamarkkinat (the Baltic herring market), and the legendary café tents that can be found on market squares.
