    An easy and delightful recipe that makes an elegant starter for a festive cocktail party - served with vodka of course! If caviar is hard to source or is expensive, lumpfish roe can be used. I see this being served for a Midsummer party in honour of the lands of the midnight sun, with assorted vodka cocktails! This festive and very special appetiser was developed by one of the best-known Swedish chefs, Dr Tore Wretman, who served a version of this dish in his Stockholm restaurant in 1958, since when it has become a classic. (This recipe version by Market Kitchen and Swedish chef and cookery writer, Anna Mosesson.)

    Recipe #427773

    Another GREAT Jamie Oliver recipe, and one that I am preparing for New Year's Eve! Jamie says you can use any spirits or liquor, but he suggestes vodka and tequila in his recipe. These bottles look SO festive and pretty, I plan to use holly, berries, bay leaves, fruit slices, ivy and woody herbs for my bottles this year. DO check that the liquor bottle fits INSIDE the plastic water bottle first! This recipe idea for serving liquor originates from Scandinavia. (Prep time is for freezing the bottles.)

    Recipe #405174

    Delightful and EASY little smoked salmon and cucumber appetisers, and healthy too, with NO pastry! These are a breeze to make but they tick all the taste boxes, as well as being elegant. Cucumbers do vary in size, and I have suggested a medium cucumber, which is about 10" to 12" long.........however, any size will do!! Adjust the crème fraiche to how many cups you yield from a cucumber, I managed to make 30 cups and used 10 tablespoons of crème fraîche for that amount, 1 teaspoon per cup. Serve these with cocktails and pre-dinner drinks, or as part of a buffet. The cucumber cups and crème fraîche can be prepared beforehand, but these should only be assembled 1 hour before serving (at the most) and covered in cling film to ensure the smoked salmon does not dry out. Allow 2 to 4 per person, depending on what else is served.

    Recipe #404994

    This is a twist on the traditional way of serving cloudberries in Norway, I have added lavender and vanilla to enhance the ephemeral flavour of this delicate arctic berry. A member of the rose family, cloudberry bushes produce delicious yellow/orange berries that are highly prized in Scandinavia. Smaller than blackberries and raspberries, cloudberries are picked at the end of July and the beginning of August. The cloudberry is almost exclusively sold fresh or made into jam, but it's also used in liqueurs and as a filling in sweets and chocolates. They are difficult to substitute - but I imagine raspberries or lingonberries would be a lovely idea if you cannot get cloudberries.

    Recipe #235233

    An easy and stunning flavoured vodka to make at home. I always try to make a least one bottle when I harvest my fresh lavender, as it works so much better with fresh lavender rather than dried lavender. I sometimes add a couple of strips of orange peel for a more subtle and complex flavour. This lavender scented vodka is excellent in Martinis! Make sure your lavender is free of insects and pesticides, just give the stems a gentle shake outside before using. I have also used this lavender vodka in poached fruit, as well as a splashing some of over poached salmon - absolutley divine!

    Recipe #240083

    My latest culinary discovery and invention! I had some lovely fresh salmon fillets, a fennel bulb and lots of potatoes.....so, I thought I would make a one dish meal out of it. Everyone loved it and it is light enough to eat any time of the year. Do try to use WHOLE boned & skinned salmon fillets - they sit so well lengthways in your gratin dish! I added no garlic to mine - I felt that the fennel and onion flavours were enough; but if you like, a clove or two at the most might be a tasty addition. Serve with chilled Chablis, Colombard,Chardonnay or a good Rose wine for a delightful lunch or supper. We ate this with crusty bread and a big bowl of mixed salad.....plus a couple bottles of wine! This serves 6 people as a main meal, but it can be reduced or increased according to your menu requirements.

    Recipe #223505

    This very old-fashioned, traditional Scandinavian recipe, which is claimed by both Denmark and Norway! Wherever it came from originally, it does not alter the fact that this is a delicious apple, nut and cream layered dessert, which looks very pretty, served in individual glasses. If you can get hold of rye bread to make your breadcrumbs, it will be all the more authentic.

    Recipe #235021

    This is a slightly different Gravlax recipe than normal, as it uses gin and juniper for a clean, sophisticated and fresh taste - if you are not keen on gin - you could use vodka instead! Junipers can also be replaced by a few extra peppercorns. Gravlax (pronounced grov-lox) is from the Swedish name for this dish. Norwegians call it gravlaks and the Danish refer to it as Gravad laks. It literally means "buried salmon" and the name refers to the traditional method of preparation for this food: fresh salmon was heavy salted and buried in dry sand to ferment and cure.

    Recipe #235050

    Swedish meatballs must be the most famous "export" recipe from this fascinating country. I like to think that these are a little bit different, and more authentic than most recipes you see. This is REAL Swedish home cooking at its best - and if you can manage to get hold of Lingonberries, you will notice a wonderful & very subtle difference; however, cranberries will do just as well. These meatballs are perfect served with piles of mashed potatoes or broad ribbon pasta.

    Recipe #235024

    This is one of Sweden's most popular every-day dishes. Serve it with fried eggs, pickled beetroot and rye bread, in the traditional way. Makes a superb light "comfort" lunch or supper dish, and is quick and easy to rustle up for hungry children and family!

    Recipe #235035

    This cucumber salad goes well with just any kind of meal. In Sweden, strong white distilled vinegar is usually used (12%), which gives the cucumber salad the correct sweet-and-sour flavour and a wonderful fresh and refreshing taste.

    Recipe #235063

    A bit of a twist on the usual sweet Danish pastries, these are my savoury Danish pastries using Danish Bacon and Danish Blue cheese - a very tasty combination! Use ready made puff pastry for speed and ease. Serve these for brunch or a light lunch with salads and pickles. These are also great to take on a picnic.

    Recipe #235060

    A classic and favourite cake recipe from Norway. The Scandinavians love using fruit in their cooking, and this apple cake is a wonderful example of a moist and fruity dessert type cake. It can be served warm or cold and freezes very well.

    Recipe #235156

    An easy and very tasty oven baked Swedish pancake with bacon - perfect for a busy weekend brunch or breakfast. Try to use high quality smoked bacon for a better flavour and taste.

    Recipe #235170

    Midsummer would not be Midsummer without strawberries, and this is a simple Swedish recipe to make, to celebrate Midsummer, wherever you may be! In Scandinavia, the summer solstice is a magical time. The lavender twilight lasts until 11 p.m. and the day breaks again at about 2 a.m.; above the Arctic Circle, the sun doesn't sink below the horizon for weeks. This year, 2007, Midsummer Eve, the beginning of the three day official holiday, falls on June 25. Throughout Scandinavia, families and friends gather to decorate the maypole with birch leaves and wildflowers, make flower crowns for women and girls, dance around the maypole, sing summer songs and feast on pickled herring, new potatoes, and aquavit. In addition, many families have their own special foods that they traditionally serve as the Midsummer meal. These are usually dishes that can be prepared ahead of time and easily served outdoors.

    Recipe #235227

    An absolute "must" as an accompaniment to the Swedish Smorgasbord, this salad is very easy to make and is delicious with cold meats, fish, potatoes and open sandwiches.
