TAPIO, FINLAND, 79 p
In the middle of the Finish woods, you find this restaurant where everything from cutlery to presentation is a feast for the eyes. Tapio has a strong focus on local ingredients, many of them come from the restaurant’s farm and from the local village Posio (such as fish and reindeer). Food waste is minimal, due to the compost and the fact that excess bread goes to animal feed, or – if it’s meat – to the hunting dog Lilly (who, in return, provides the restaurant with game.) One of the very few places we have visited where 50 percent of the kitchen staff are female.
