Tastes of Finnish America
Foods that make us smile
Even a casual visitor to Michigan's Copper Country can notice the region has a Finnish flavor. From Hancock's bilingual street signs to sisu license place covers, pride in Finnish heritage can be spotted around every corner. It's just part of daily living here, and makes visitors curious.
This book celebrates the summer food traditions of the Finnish-Americans who call the Copper Country their home. Foods that gather families together, ground us in our unique Finnish-American culture - and, whether we love to eat them, or love to only tell tales about them, they are food that make us smile. "Foods that make us smile" shares, explains and celebrates the Finnish-American food traditions found in Michigan's Copper Country.
