Finlandia Foundation National

Two FFCPC Board members are also Trustees on Finlandia Foundation National Board. Dirk Schulbach has served as the Treasurer since 2014 and Katariina Lehtonen was elected in 2015. We are well represented! 

Päivi Kilpi-Cramer and Karjalanpiirakka

Päivi is the master baker within the Finnish community. All members and visitors to our events have tasted Päivi’s delicious baked goods. The February issue of Pamplin Media Group’s Lake Oswego Review published an article of Päivi demonstrating how to bake Karjalanpiirakka, Karelian Rice Pasties. A little lesson on Finnish language: the singular form of the word is karjalanpiirakka and plural is karjalanpiirakat. We are OK with the typo in the title of the article. Please click the link below to read the article.
