FINNISH FESTIVAL                            VOGUE

(Continued from page 77) gourmet circles in Finland, it is considered the height of unselfishness-and true chivalry-should the owner of such a sandwich turn it over to the lady of his heart. So in fact, many a Finnish romance has had its beginning under the sign of a well-covered, well-buttered krapuja-tail sandwich.

KRAPUJA IN THE U.S.A.
   In case all of this has made you feel that you would like to do a little krapuja experimenting on your own, you can try some of the Finnish recipes with American crawfish. The crawfish in this country mostly resembling krapuja come from the fresh waters of Wisconsin, and the large metropolitan fish shops will order these for you if you notify them in advance. Petrosino, in Washington Market, in New York, for example, provides the crawfish on a day's notice. You have to order ten dozen, but you will probably want that many anyway, to make a party of their introduction. These Wisconsin crawfish are also used as a substitute for Krapuja in the Swedish and finnish restaurants in this country. And, if you like, you could substitute lobster for the crawfish in any of the following Finnish recipes. 
   Suppose you have your crawfish at hand, you might want to try them in the classic way that they are served in Finland. For this, scrub the fish carefully; and for each twelve, dissolve a handful of salt in boiling water, to which a generous amount of fresh dill has been added. The crawfish are then boiled rapidly from ten to fifteen minutes, and served hot, or chilled and served on a bed of cracked ice.
 Crawfish Salad: The meat is removed from the tails and claws of the crawfish that have been boiled in salted water. An equal amount of asparagus tips is combined with the fish and mixed with mayonnaise in which there are capers and chopped pickles. The salad is surrounded by flowerets of uncooked cauliflower. 
 Crawfish Butter: In Finland, this butter is sealed in jars for use in future dishes during the krapuja season. Here, if you have a mess of crawfish at hand, you might prepare some of the butter to use in the recipes that follow, and also to be used as a paste for canapes.
 Mash the claws and shells of twenty-five boiled krapuja, and simmer these with half a pound of butter over a slow fire for half an hour. Stir frequently, and add a little water. Strain the mixture through a cloth and press down in a jar of cold water until it hardens. Remove from water and keep in ice-box.
 Omelette A La Mantua: Make a rolled omelette in the ordinary manner and stuff it with the meat of boiled crawfish tails and mushrooms or truffles, which are cut in small cubes and mixed with equal parts of crawfish butter and mayonnaise. (About two mushrooms or truffles are used with thirty crawfish tails.) Garnish the platter with whole boiled tails and crawfish butter.
 Crawfish Stew: Boil fifty crawfish in salted water. Remove the meat from the tails and claws and boil these for a few minutes in crawfish butter and bouillon or stock. Mix the fish with drawn butter to which has been added juice from the crawfish and a little crawfish butter.
