When I first time heard about the Restaurant Day, I got so excited! For one day ANYONE can open a restaurant or a cafe anywhere, basically. Is it legal and approved? Legal - no! - but approved by people - yes! I wanted to do something too, to participate in this exciting food carneval, to be part of the mass movement against the normally bureaucratic restaurant legislations and rules - food lovers anarchy party, I thought! So when I found out that our yoga studio was free on the same weekend the next Restaurant Day was gonna take place, I called my friend and asked if she had any suggestions of a restaurant we should open. I had the premises and enthusiasm to organize something but I wasn't gonna turn into some kind of Master Chef in one night!

Virve introduced me to Jutta from Kaunis Päivä Tänään and Lempeä Elämä who's specialized in healthy foods like raw food. We immediatelly clicked and this is the result: FAKE CAKE - RAW FOOD CAFE! I'm so excited! Me, Virve and Jutta will make different kind of raw cakes and small delicatesses in different flavours - show how you can make healthy, rich and tasty treats from pure, fresh ingredients without white flour, sugar or any of the other stuff we're normally used to think as delicious basic ingredients for desserts - these yammies will seduce your tongue in a way you've never experienced before so please, do come and test them out! More info here!

Hope to see you this Saturday 4.2 in Pihasali! Support Restaurant Day - it got awarded as the best cultural act of 2011 in Helsinki!
