The 2009 E-creation Finnish Christmas Dinner

The 2009 E-creation Finnish Christmas Dinner
'Possibly the best Christmas Dinner in Bournemouth'

What a gastronomic feast our Christmas dinner was on Wednesday evening. Jan Erik, MD of E-creation, took it upon himself to introduce new members of the team to the pleasures of the Finnish Christmas dinner at his home in Alum Chine. The stunning menu was wholly in accordance with the ‘just that little bit sharper’ philosophy - and was we believe the best Christmas dinner held in the whole of Bournemouth.

With his Finnish roots and the importance of the Christmas meal in the Finnish celebration of Christmas, it was only natural that Jan-Erik chose some of the choicest Finnish morsels. So give you a taste of what it was all about ... here is a peak of the Finnish culinary delights on offer.
