Together we will prepare and eat a traditional Swedish Smörgåsbord
Join my culinary event in my kitchen out on Lidingö. Learn how to cook and serve a traditional Swedish Smörgåsbord. Here are some of the foods we will be preparing;
- How to cure a salmon to make "gravad lax" together with the classical mustard sauce.
- Herring with all the trimmings.
- Reindeer tidbits.
Once we have prepared the Smörgåsbord we will be ready to sample it together for lunch. Let's not forget the obligatory Snaps and singing!
You will receive a booklet with all the recipes, so you can go home and prepare your own festive Smörgåsbord for your family and friends!
I will also tell you about our Swedish eating and drinking customs and rituals.
I hope you will join me for this very Swedish culinary event in my home. Welcome - Välkommen!
Pick-up from your hotel by car in a VW Sharan. It can take up to 6 passengers, but has a little less leg room in the back 2 seats. 30 min. drive from the centre of Stockholm out to the island of Lidingö.
We start cooking and preparing the Smörgåsbord whilst sipping on a cup of coffee.
When everything is ready we will enjoy the lunch together after which you will be driven back to your hotel. If we have some extra time I will show you parts of the island of Lidingö - with some hidden hideaways!
