Themed Dining and Culinary School

The dishes of themed dinners offer the flavours of Finnish nature.

A Culinary Journey inspired by Akseli Gallen-Kallela

Experience a culinary masterpiece at Serlachius Museum’s Restaurant Gösta. During themed dining, we set out on a culinary journey to experience culinary impulses from the lives of Finnish industrialists, peasants and artists transported by historical tales stemming from the works of Akseli Gallen-Kallela.

The dishes will be prepared using our national treasures directly from the Finnish nature, such as vendace, game, mushrooms and berries. This themed dining with Finnish flavours includes also a guided walk through Serlachius Museum Gösta’s island and the park, a campfire soup and a four-course dinner. The meal is accompanied by the guide’s stories in Restaurant Gösta.

Resturateur Henri Tikkanen offers culinary experiences for small groups at his culinary school.
