Tareq’s return to Åland

In Season 1 of our series, Tareq explored some of the 6500 islands that make up Åland, located in the sea between Sweden and Finland. With 6497 islands still left to explore, we thought it was time for a return trip. Tareq looked at how gastronomy on the island was shaped by the numerous invaders that ruled this archipelago over the centuries, how Ålanders work hard to recycle everything they can for a new purpose, and meets a brewmaster who is working with re-creating beer that was found in a 200-year old shipwreck.
