For the sixth time, Taste of Helsinki will take its visitors on a journey of exploration through the city’s flavours, serving up some of the best food in the country. The gourmet picnic brings together ten fabulous restaurants, seven from Helsinki and three from other cities including abroad. The festival was established in 2012 by Barry and Mira MacNamara. Having been inspired by Taste of Dublin and its good food, wine and company, they wanted to create a similar event in Helsinki. “We were very lucky with the weather during that first year, and everyone had an amazing time,” says Barry MacNamara of the premiere.
