I recently had the opportunity to contribute a food-related article to http://www.thelocal.se/, which covers the Swedish news in English. My topic was ten Swedish foods I would miss if I moved. In general I tried to stick to things that would be difficult to get, or make, outside of Sweden with the exception of the kanelbullar (cinnamon rolls) which are on the list partly for their sheer omnipresence here. The Local didn’t run all of the photos that went along with the article so you can click here for a link to the article, and you can see all of the photos below.
It’s fun to think about what foods you would miss if you moved. It’s not always easy to know what you might be able to find in a new place, but at least you can give some thought to your current favorites. Or perhaps you have already left somewhere and have a list from that memorable place and time in your life. So…..what’s on your list?
Prinsesstårta (princess cake)
Nyponsoppa (rose hip soup)
Varmrökt lax (warm-smoked salmon)
Jordgubbar (jordgubbar literally means earth men, a very interesting name indeed for strawberries)
