We are closing this short Danish special with one of the most ubiquitous side dishes of Scandinavian cuisine and especially Danish cuisine: rødkål.
Knækbrød! It was about time I prepared this recipe that I have been dying to try for 18 years! I came across these famous little crackers while expecting my second son, Ruben.
About 3 weeks ago, 196 flavors kicked off the summer by celebrating Memorial Day. Today, we are going to Sweden to celebrate the start of this beautiful season with the festival of Midsommar, and that together with our friend Delphine, our Swedish culinary expert, passionate about cooking and blogger at Del’s cooking twist .
Lycklig Midsommar! Happy Midsummer! This holiday, which could be called the feast of St. John the Baptist is certainly the largest and most celebrated holiday in Sweden, more than Christmas or the National Day of Sweden (Sveriges nationaldag).
The National Day of Sweden was just celebrated on June 6th. However, if you ask any Swede, this national holiday is rather uneventful compared to Midsommar or even Saint Lucia that we celebrated with lussekater back in December.
After the celebration of Saint Nicolas last week, we are headed to Sweden to celebrate another saint, St. Lucy, this time with traditional saffron buns called lussekatter.
Delphine Fortin is the culinary expert for Swedish cuisine on 196 flavors.
Two months ago on 196F, chocolate was the star of the weekly theme. In my research, I hesitated between Swiss Caracs and the Swedish Vit Chokladmoussetårta.
