In the Koli area you will find traditional Karelian food. In Karelian cooking, the oven is everything. Besides heating, the oven has traditionally been used for stewing foods. So, at the heart of Karelian cooking you’ll find long-simmered casseroles, meat dishes, and stewed vegetables. For a tasty accompaniment, you typically get Karelian pasties such as karjalanpiirakka, sultsina, tsupukka, and vatruska.
