"An illustrated lifestyle cookbook on the Swedish tradition of fika--a twice-daily coffee break--including recipes for traditional baked goods, information and anecdotes about Swedish coffee culture, and the roots and modern incarnations of this cherished custom. Sweden is one of the world's top coffee consuming nations, and the social coffee break known as fika is a cultural institution. A time to take a rest from work and chat with friends or colleagues over a cup and a sweet treat, fika is part of the national identity and a marker of the Swedish ideal of taking time to appreciate life's small joys. Fika can be had alone or in groups, indoors or outdoors, while traveling or while at home, and Fika is full of inspiration to elevate these daily coffee breaks. In this adorable and illustrated cookbook, Anna Brones and Johanna Kindvall share more than 45 classic recipes from their motherland--from cinnamon buns and ginger snaps to rhubarb cordial and rye bread--while also examining what fika means to Swedes and how we can all integrate its values into our daily lives."--

Brontë Aurell, owner of the ScandiKitchen Café in London, brings her famous flair to over 65 Scandinavian-style recipes that perfectly capture the joy of summer eating.

In Scandinavian culture, eating well is all about ‘lagom’ or balance— everything in moderation. Try the tempting breakfast ideas such as Blueberry Porridge. Sharing plates such as Smoked Mackerel Rillettes with Rye Crisps are ideal for grazing, while satisfying larger plates include Herbed Pork Tenderloin with Hasselback Potatoes or Danish Plaice with Remoulade. The all-important cake and fika recipes include a Midsummer Strawberry Cake and Skinny Lemon Muffins. A classic Sourdough Rye Loaf and Seeded Crispbread with Dried Nettles are on offer in the breads chapter, and tempting desserts include a Swedish Mess with Cloudberries, plus there are some refreshing summer drinks to sip, such as a traditional aquavit cocktail. Also included are Brontë’s fascinating insights into Scandinavian summer traditions and celebrations.
