The Finns are known for combining traditional home cooking with modern continental style cooking. Fish and meat (preferably pork, beef and reindeer) are widely used, usually combined with vegetables and mushrooms.
Finnish food contains a lot of whole grain products (rye, barley, oats) and berries (blueberries, lingonberries, mulberries and sea buckthorn).
Milk products are often used as food, drink and in various recipes. Cabbage has been common in traditional cooking, but was replaced by the potato, when it arrived in the country, in a good number of dishes.
Rye bread is the national dish and is eaten for breakfast, lunch, as a snack and is often served with butter or cheese and ham.
