Vappu is one of the biggest celebrations in Finland. And of course every celebration call for its culinary specialty.
Around May 1 Finns traditionally eat the so called Tippaleipä. It is made of spaghetti shaped dough from flour, egg, sugar, lemon, salt and spices and deep fried in oil.
Tippaleipä is sold in shops everywhere in Finland at the moment. Go and get some as long as the shops are still open.
And don’t forget to head to Havis Amanda at Kauppatori around six today to watch Mantan Lakitu, the official beginning on Vappu.
