"This round potato is beautiful!"
Translation:Tämä pyöreä peruna on kaunis!
For a couple of centuries now, potatoes have been one of the main pillars of the Finnish diet. They've, in part, helped people through famine and times of depression. Though their use in general has been decreasing nowadays, it still is one of the most common ingredients in Finnish food. So yeah, there's definitely a special relationship between Finns and potatoes. :D
And the same across most of northern Europe. My Japanese students visiting England to learn English remarked on how often they encountered potatoes here.
It's strange then to remember that potatoes were only introduced to Europeans from the Americas in the last 500 years, and the same for tomatoes. Imagine Mediterranean cuisine without tomatoes!
