The Swedish kitchen - from fika to cosy Friday

Why is fika one of the first Swedish words you will learn? Why do Swedes leave their shoes at the door at a dinner party? Do lingonberries really work with everything? And what exactly is ‘cosy Friday’?

The Swedish kitchen – from fika to cosy Friday offers a glimpse into the culinary treats and habits of Swedes. With over 30 recipes from eight different settings, Liselotte Forslin, Rikard Lagerberg and Susanne Walström welcome you into a world of good food, traditions and new trends.

The Swedish kitchen is available in English, French, German and Spanish.

Celebrating the Swedish way

In Celebrating the Swedish way we learn how seasons, pagan times, Christianity, immigration and indeed the insatiable curiosity of Swedes themselves have all played a part in shaping the ever-evolving Swedish traditions. You might both recognise traces of your own traditions and be baffled by the extraordinary nature of others.

Innovation the Swedish way

Transformed from a poor agrarian nation to a highly industrialized country in just over 100 years, Sweden is today one of the world's innovation leaders. In Innovation the Swedish Way you will meet innovators and entrepreneurs behind some of the latest and most successful innovations.
