The first guest was Ali Luoho, who is active as the chef of the restaurant Nokka in Helsinki, Finland. “There is a true story behind the delicious food,” says Mr. Ali, who places importance on the transparency of food and local production for local consumption, and is co-developing a menu with food producers in Finland. We are also focusing on the development and provision of original menus using Jibie that we captured, and we have received many awards in recent years for recognition of these achievements.

【Ari Luoho profile】
A chef and restaurant owner who is currently the head of the restaurant and Nokka.
Served as a chef at restaurant Nokka since 2010. His food philosophy can be found in Finnish food that expresses the season, its taste and ingredients. We cherish the use of Finnish produce produced in a unique way, taking into consideration nature, the environment and the animal breeding environment. Enjoying nature in various forms such as hunting, fishing and trekking is Luho's hobby and source of inspiration.
"Finland's food culture has received more attention than ever before. To support this, we have partnered with different industries such as travel and service, and we are more interested in a wide range of activities that are specifically planned. I think it is necessary to encourage them, ”says Luoho.
