Scandinavian Midsummer Menu
If your looking to celebrate this summer solstice with a taste of Sweden, then here is a typical Scandinavian traditional midsummer menu to feast on. We have found a great recipe from Lavenderandlovage.com to set you up for a Midsummer celebration, Scandi style. A typical menu will involve some snacks and nibbles and copious amounts of alcohol such as Aquavit ,schnapps and beer, or lingonberry and elderflower cordials, but your main delight will be some style of pickled herring or salmon, gravadlax, crisp breads, swedish meatballs and ‘Vasterbottensost’ cheese pie, with fresh summer new potatoes, followed by summer strawberries and a Strawberry Cake. Ahh!! Sound tempting???
