Food and Drink
“One can’t be too dangerous, if they like to eat pancakes. Especially with jam on it”, Moomintroll once wisely said. As no gathering is complete without a suitable feast, we'll be serving special Moomin inspired food and drink for the evening — from Moominpappa’s favourite tipple to traditional Finnish dishes.
