Foodie Underground: Scandinavian Takeover

with 2 comments

Covered the Scandinavian food trend over on EcoSalon today. Love to see Swedish food making its way around the globe… I’ll take a fika any day.

Notice how any recent mention of fare from Sweden, Norway and Denmark also denotes how a Scandinavian food trend is quickly making its way into all kinds of food markets?

Why it’s taken so long for Scandinavian fare to hit the global market is beyond me, but with simple, down to earth ingredients, in the time of slow food movements and a return to more classic, traditional recipes, the timing for Viking-inspired recipes makes sense. Point being, Scandinavian inspired recipes are going to be hot this year, and you’d better prepare yourself.

Growing up with a Swedish mother and annual trips to visit my family have certainly impacted the way that I cook, and for a while now, I’ve been drooling over Kalle Bergman’s Huffington Post column, every time thinking to myself, “I need to be writing that.” Well, now’s the time.

Here’s your quick and dirty guide to everything you need to know to staying on top of the Scandinavian food trend.

  1. Fika, the best swedish invention since Celsius! 🙂 It always takes me by surprise, how I’m never so swedish as when I’m abroad.

    have just found a new swedish cookbook that I love (even though I actually haven’t tried any recipes in it yet…) “Om jag var din hemmafru” (“if I were your housewife”) thought you’d appreciate the look as well as the swedish simple touch of the cooking in it. It’ll come out in Swedish book stores in march. by food journalist and blogger Lotta Lundgren: http://hemmafru.taffel.se/
