Gateaux and the Fortress - Sweet Pastries and Island Stories, published by Cozy Publishing, combines mouth-watering delicacies with the peace of the archipelago. Emilia Vartiainen, who lives in the unique Fortress of Suomenlinna, has written a book that inspires not only to bake but also to live a little more slowly and with more pleasure. The book contains recipes that are suitable for beginners and provide just the right challenge for more experienced home bakers. Among the tempting recipes and charming pictures, you'll find island stories, written by the author herself and Tove Jansson.
Savour mouth-watering treats, the sea and tranquility, and hop onboard a ferry to a historical sea fortress in the north. Gateaux and the Fortress whisks to daily life and celebrations on an island off the Helsinki coastline. The archipelago ambience of the unique Suomenlinna island beckons to pause and take note of all those beautiful moments that count.
Enchanted by her home island, Emilia Vartiainen is on a mission to make the world a more delicious and delectable place.
