    How to Cook dishes from Sweden


    Sweden Due to its northerly location, Sweden experiences long Winters. As a result, traditional Swedish recipes often contain relatively few fresh vegetables other than those that would have been available in the Winter months such as turnips (including rutabaga which is native to Sweden, and known in British English as "swede"), potato, cabbage preserved as sauerkraut, or a jam made from lingonberry (a small flowering plant with edible red berries). On the other hand, due to the country's long coastline and seafaring traditions, fish forms an important part of the Swedish diet.

    On the whole, Swedish food is relatively plain, although some local herbs and spices are used. Traditional Swedish food is also relatively high in saturated fat and sugar, but as most other Western countries, supermarkets are increasingly offering healthier alternatives, such as low fat milk.

    The traditional Swedish practise is to eat three meals each day - breakfast (Swedish: frukost), lunch (Swedish: lunch), and (Swedish: middag) - with the evening meal being the main meal of the day. However, nowadays it is increasingly common to have the main meal at lunch time and a lighter dinner. Additionally, snacks (Swedish: mellanmål), particularly sandwiches and fruit are popular between meals.

    Some popular Swedish dishes include:
    • Ärtsoppa - Pea soup.

    • Blodpudding - Black pudding - A sausage prepared by cooking blood with filling.

    • Gravad lax - Cured salmon with salt, sugar, vinegar and dill. It is popular as an appetizer, and eaten with a dill and mustard sauce, on bread or with potato.

    • Inlagd sill - Pickled herring.

    • Janssons frestelse - A baked dish containing potato, onion and cream, with pickled sprats (Swedish: ansjovis).

    • Kåldolmar - Rolls made from cabbage filled with pork and rice. They are usually eaten with boiled potato, gravy and lingonberry jam.

    • Knäckebröd - A crisp cracker-like bread, made mostly from rye. It is often eaten for breakfast (Swedish: frukost) in the form of open sandwiches which are buttered and then topped with caviar, cold cuts, hard cheese or messmör (cheese spread).

      Knäckebröd

    • Köttbullar - Meatballs made either from ground (minced) beef, or a mixture of ground (minced) beef and pork. Before cooking, the meat is mixed with breadcrumbs and finally chopped onions, and seasoned with salt, and white pepper or allspice. Köttbullar are traditionally served with boiled potato, gravy, pickled cucumber and lingonberry jam.

    • Köttsoppa - A meat and root vegetable soup. Beef is normally used, but sometimes elk or reindeer is used instead. The soup is sometimes eaten with klimp, which are small simple dumplings made from wheat flour, egg and milk.

    • Kroppkaka - Potato dumplings, filled with pork and onions. Served with butter or cream, and lingonberry jam.

    • Lutfisk - An unusual dish made from stockfish (air-dried white fish) prepared using a long process involving soda lye (a caustic soda solution).

      Lutfisk (on the left) with various accompaniments

    • Pyttipanna - Potato, onions, and sausage or ham, chopped and then fried together in a pan.

    • Raggmunk - Potato pancakes.

    • Smörgåsbord - A buffet-style meal, with many small dishes to which guests can help themselves. Popular at holidays and Christmas, the latter being known as "Julbord".

    • Smörgåstårta - Literally translated, smörgåstårta means "sandwich cake". It is prepared from layers of buttered bread, with fillings in between the layers and a topping. The fillings and topping may vary, but egg and mayonnaise fillings are popular, and they are usually accompanied by one or more of caviar, liver paté, olives, prawns and smoked salmon. Smörgåstårta is served cold, and cut into slices like a dessert cake.

    • Surströmming - Fermented Baltic herring in brine.
    Some popular Swedish desserts include:
    • Kanelbulle - A cinnamon-flavored pastry roll.

      Kanelbulle

    • Knäck - A toffee eaten at Christmas.

    • Ostkaka - A baked cake made using curded milk (or nowadays cottage cheese as a substitute). Eaten with jam and whipped cream, or ice cream and fruit.

      Ostkaka

    • Saltlakrits - Salty liquorice.

    • Spettekaka - A hollow cake prepared by cooking on a skewer over an open fire. Served with vanilla ice cream, dark roast coffee and port wine.

    Product Description:
    Each summer, three sisters and their families meet at their summer cottage by the coast of Sweden. There ensue glorious, lazy days of relaxation by the water and cooking light, rustic meals to eat by the light of the fading sun. There’s something special about Swedish summers: the late evenings, the vast empty beaches, and the need to enjoy every minute because the darkest nights are right around the corner.

    Food is naturally one of the highlights of the summer vacation, and in Swedish Summer Feasts, the sisters and their families share their favorite recipes and moments. Picnics by the beach, long barbecues in the evening, brunches that last all day, baking in the rain, parties, drinks, and snacks.

    Swedish Summer Feasts serves up recipes and inspiration for all the days of the summer. Whether you’re at the beach house or dreaming to be, the flavors of the seasonal ingredients, the atmospheric photos, and the times you’ll have enjoying these dishes will make this a summer to remember forever.
