MEDITERRANEAN MIDSOMMAR

Glad Midsommar!

Idag gjorde vi vår version av sill lunchen. För smarrigt!


 

Today is a very special day in Sweden. We celebrate midsummer, the fact that the day is longer then the night. During they day all girls make flower crowns and later on we decorate the cross with flowers, that cross you dance around in order to dance in the summer.

During the day you normally have a lunch with various herrings and some snaps.
However we made our own version of midsummer..

What do you think?

THE SWEDISH

Något så Svenskt som sill, potatis, ägg och dill finns inte.

Idag gjorde jag en version av den kära midsommar lunchen.


 

Something very Swedish is to eat herring, potatoes, eggs and dill. When we celebrate the longest day of the year called midsommar this is what we typically eat. Fresh, delicious and always gives me that summer feeling.

Today we made a version of this dish.
