Visit a finnish family - a cultural exchange over a meal
Have you ever walked the streets of a city and wondered what´s going on inside the homes of the locals? What does it look like? What do they talk about? What do they eat? We have - that is why Home Dining exists.
Home Dining will help you to find this experience. We put together a network of selected homes in various parts of Helsinki. Single individuals, couples or families have all their own stories to tell. Experience wonderful moments with us, in our homes, over a meal and you will catch a glimpse of our everyday life.
Home Dining is not a restaurant but a concept where you can meet a local family at their home. Get to know how Finns typically live, taste some of our foods and enjoy a relaxed moment in our living room. The families live in different parts of the Helsinki area. You can choose the type of family you want to visit by language spoken and food served. The "menus" come in three different main categories. The visit can be arranged for 2 – 8 persons at a time.
Category 1: 2 courses, 50 €/person
Category 2: 3 courses, 65 €/person
Category 3: Tasting menu, 80 €/person
