THE SAVOY

Helsinki

The Savoy has been the flagship of Finnish gastronomy and restaurant culture for decades. Its kitchen, known for its classics, is also a trailblazer for modern gastronomy, with an emphasis on healthy eating. The head chef decides where the best raw materials are to be found. His close contacts with organic farmers, hunters, fishermen, the best food wholesalers, vineyards, herb sellers and bakerys guarantee that the ideal ingredients for a great menu are available all year long.

 

“Tasting the wines with winemakers from Castello d’Albola and Rocca di Montemassi was educational and fun. I learned a lot about the different vintages, Tuscan climate and soil types. After this experience I see Tuscan wines in totally new light.”
