About Vesa Leinonen
About Vesa Leinonen at Nordic Cuisine is about this interesting project for me to create the content Online from my experiences in Finland, also the knowledge of the traditional customs, natural food ingredients, seasonal changes, food and cuisine and the environment of the Nordic region. Hi! my name is Vesa John Leinonen and I am the creator and the compiler of this website content and the photographer of the picture images provided at the galleries presented here.
I have studied and had the training of a qualified chef in Australia, with over 20 years in the hospitality and tourism industry in Australia and seasonal work in the Lapland of Finland. Having worked in properties from Hobart Tasmania to the far north East Coast in Port Douglas, and some seasonal work at the snowfields of falls Creek, Mt Buffalo and Perisher Valley. The long winter skiing and snowboarding season of north Finland with the great winter conditions are absolutely superb and unbelievable until personally experienced. In the Arctic region during most winters, there is no drip of the gutters, no melting roads or running creeks for 3-6 months. Liquid water outdoors is a rare sight during the subzero winter season, where the ice cover over a lake may be 50-75 cm thick without any exaggeration.
Here is a picture gallery with pictures from the Nordic regions of Finland and Norway.
