Continuing with our food theme on World Pop Radio as we travel to Finland this week has lead me into a little bit of a dilemma. When you search up the national food of Finland, it brings you to a dish called Karelian. Here is the issue though - there is Karelian Stew and their is Karelian Pie.
And both look amazing.
I think it is pretty obvious as to which one is which, but just in case it isn't, one photo is luckily labeled for you. For all of the details on both of these dishes and more, I highly suggest you visit this article from the website Chef's Pencil. And after you're done, if you don't want a slice of Blueberry Pie you might just not be human.
If you are thinking to yourself, reading about these dishes is great and all, but I'm in the mood to do some cooking, then you're in luck! Here are recipes to BOTH types of Karelian recipes. If you make them, post your results and reviews on social media and be sure to tag us! We are on both Twitter and Instagram @worldpopradio.
