Now is the season for the Runeberg cakes, "Runebergstårtor". This tart which has got its name after Johan Ludvig Runeberg, the National Poet of Finland, was the tart his wife supposedly made and served on his birthday in the beginning of February. This often arrack punch tasting tart is something we in Finland serve with coffee on February, 5th.
