044/2011 dinner for far-away guests

One of the exciting and pleasant aspects about travelling abroad, is getting to taste all the new and exotic fare that each destination has to offer. Despite globalisation, and more and more international cuisines everywhere, luckily there is still so much to discover in this area.

Whenever we have foreign visitors, and if they are not vegetarian, I always prepare this Arctic speciality from Lapland – mashed potatoes with sautéd ultra thin reindeer meat, served with slightly sweetened crushed lingonberries. 100% Finnish, and went down well with Korean guests tonight.

    Yum! I’ll have some please. What does reindeer meet taste like? Kangaroo meat tastes very rich; it’s a strong flavour. We give our dog kangaroo meat and it smells great with garlic.

    Reindeer meat is not very strong, but it has a definite game taste to it. With the sour lingonberries it tastes particularly good. It’s very lean meat, so quite good for you – or so they say. Would love to try kangaroo meat one day – sounds so exotic 🙂
