Mikko Nordic Fine Foods, 1636 R St NW, Washington, DC
Please join us for lunch on Saturday, April 6 at Chef Mikko's Cafe in Washington, DC!
A three-course meal especially prepared for Lakselaget DC will be await us, salmon included, and one of of Chef Mikko's associates will tell us a little bit about the cafe, the food, the concept, and the history behind it. (Alcholic beverages on your own bill). Chef Mikko Kosonen hails from Finland and worked as the Chef for the Finnish Ambassador for many years. Authentic Nordic food with a local twist is served in his cafe which was opened about a year ago. Here is what you will find on the regular menu: House-smoked salmon piled on thinly sliced home-made rye bread; herring made a plethora of ways; buckwheat blinis piled with fresh sour cream, onions, and caviar; homemade soups filled with hearty root vegetables from local sources; and mushroom and beet-root salads just like you would find in food halls and farmers markets in Stockholm and Helsinki. Chef Mikko started cooking at the age of 13 at his family’s restaurant “Cassi” in Stockholm, Sweden. He trained at the prestigious Helsinki Culinary School and honed his skills at the Havis Amanda restaurant in Helsinki, which enjoys a reputation as one of the finest fish and seafood restaurants in all of Finland and at the Belvedere Hotel In Annecy, France, also famous for its fish and seafood. In other words, you are in for a treat! Please RSVP no later than April 3. Limited spots.
