Delight family and friends with hundreds of the very best Swedish dishes. From typical smorgasbord items to classic main dishes to traditional breads and pastries, you'll find 200 easy-to-follow recipes for genuine Swedish foods. Certainly one of the most well-known Swedish traditions is the smorgasbord, composed of such delicious items as chef's pickled herring, marinated smelts, creamed lobster, meatballs, and baked omelet. You'll find clearly detailed instructions for these and other delights. Among the main courses are such standards as Tuesday soup, roast lamb, pork, and mashed turnips, along with a wide variety of classic fish dishes. You'll also find recipes for special feast-day and holiday treats, such as Lucia rolls, Christmas crullers, "vörtbröd," mazarine torte, and others. To help you plan perfect Swedish meals, the book includes a chapter on menus — everyday dinners, smorgasbord suggestions, and traditional Easter and Christmas suppers.
