I flew Finnair to attend the Qualityhunters weekend in Helsinki the airline provided return business class flights from Dusseldorf to Helsinki and Helsinki to Milan several days later.
The Marimekko inspired/designed menu from Dusseldorf included:
Cherry tomatoes with Mozzarella.
Butter chicken with basmati rice.
From Helsinki to Milan I sampled:
Mousse of smoked salmon with sweet dark rye bread.
Beef goulash with a herb polenta.
Both meals were of a high-quality standard. I enjoyed the Beef Goulash with the herb polenta; however, the butter chicken was exceptional and flavourful. It may not have presented well, but it was delicious.
