You can explore a country with your eyes and ears, but really understanding a culture means using your taste buds and your tummy. Blue Drum arranges cooking events where one of the top chefs of Finland and Estonia presents local modern food specialities. Intrigued? Hungry? Why serve your guests an ordinary lunch or dinner when you can treat them to a truly extraordinary culinary experience prepared and presented by one of the country’s top chefs? Blue Drum offers just such options.

In Finland, we work with the hands-on chefs who are credited with bringing international prestige to the nation’s cuisine. After years of working in several of Helsinki’s top restaurants they created a Michelin star-rated establishments dedicated to all things natural, organic, wild and fair-trade.  We are happy to introduce you ‘finesse dining’ – personal and stylish cuisine served in a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere.

Dimitri Demjanov, the grand old man of Estonia’s culinary scene, is Blue Drum’s partner in Estonia. Demjanov is not only the force behind one of Estonia’s most prestigious restaurants, Gloria, he is also the president of the Estonian Bocuse d’Or, the culinary equivalent of the Olympic Games. For your group, he will present Estonia’s take on modern, Nordic cuisine, where ‘fresh’, ‘local’ and ‘seasonal’ are the bywords. Events with these chefs can be arranged in their restaurants or in off-site locations such as luxury manor houses. Contact Blue Drum for further details.
