Food Ideas for Sweden
Swedes are famous for their buffets - heard of "smorgasbord"?
- and a great dish for a crowd is Jansons Frestelse - Janson's Temptation.
Basically julienne potatoes in a flat casserole layered with chopped onion
and anchovies moistened with cream / half & half, and baked in the
oven. The anchovies give a salty flavor but you wouldn't know they're in
there (for the squeamish). Serve with ham or good hot dogs. The other idea
is a sandwich cake - smorgastarta - cut a round loaf in 1 inch layers,
"frost" between layers and on top with fillings like cream cheese or mayo-
based spreads or liverwurst, and top with tiny shrimp, inexpensive Icelandic
caviar in a jar, chopped or sliced hard-boiled egg, cucumber pickles, fresh
dill, lemon slices, etc. Serve like cake. For dessert, any ginger cookie
- cutouts or round snaps. Of course, Swedes love cakes with whipped cream
or fruit soup.
