About Piritta

This is blog is written for lovers of nature, beauty and pleasure. Upgrade your hiking experience by exploring great cooking in landscapes! I'm hooked in fishing and hiking in Lapland. Since 2005 I've spent most of my holidays in the wilderness, at least a week per year, some years much more. Dreaming about it and planning the trip months ahead makes the experience last longer! It is great to share my passionate hobby with you. I hope this blog and my wilderness cooking books will offer you plenty of inspiration.
