Uhkua's wild food dinner on the island of Lake Saimaa in 20.7.2024

Uhkua's wild food dinner on the island of Lake Saimaa in 20.7.2024

Immerse yourself in the enchanting athmosphere of Saimaa’s lake nature during two magical Saturdays in July – the 6th and the 20th. Join us for an unforgettable experience as we navigate the mysterious Yövesi with charming old fishing boat Juno. Once you're on the island, we will treat you with the season's finest local culinary delights!

During the journey, the beauty of lake nature unfolds at its best, and upon reaching the idyllic little island, dinner is served on the rocky shore with breathtaking finnish lake scenery.

The dinner is prepared on open fire by our residential D.O.Saimaa -chef Ilkka Arvola. Delicious four course menu is filled with flavors of Saimaa and features the best seasonal ingredients from the surrounding nature. We grow large part of the ingredients ourselves and pick mushrooms, berries and herbs in the local forests. The fish is caught nearby in a seal-friendly way and the rest of the ingredients come from local producers. Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, and food made from local and homegrown ingredients is our passion.

First - Marinated perch and ne potatoes
Between - Wild herb gazpacho
Main - Forest mushrooms, spinach and smoked pike
After - Forest strawberries and duck egg brûlée

Secure your place in the table! With only 12 seats available per dinner, spaces fill up quickly. For those seeking an exclusive experience, we also organize dinners on request to small groups – simply reach out for more details. Non-alcoholic beverages are included in the price. If you want to enjoy alcohol during the dinner feel free to bring your own (drink recommendations by request). Our island destination has a toilet, and the dinner is enjoyed under a canopy. If the weather conditions do not allow the boat ride, the dinner is served in our charming old log house.
