Don’t just eat like a local. Learn to bake like one, too
Don’t just eat like a local. Learn to bake like one, too!
Fika is Swedish for a coffee break and its a deep rooted ritual – a bit similar to British afternoon tea tradition, when we sit down and socialise over a cup of hot drink and some small snacks. The difference is that we have fika a few times a day. In fact, we are officially entitled to have regular fika breaks at work!
So it comes as no surprise that we Swedes are among the top consumers of coffee and sweets in the world – or that we appreciate the good things in life!
How it works
We´ll start at the local grocery store with the shopping list in swedish.
Your first step will be to find all the ingredients you need on the list with the help from your local guide from My Swedish Experience and the other precipitants in your group. Learn some Swedish at the same time as you are visiting a great place to spot culture. Like, what kind of food do people like? What are the local delicacies?
When we’re done shopping we’ll visit a local home and get to know all about the area. Things like the local history, culture, harvest time, foods, music, or celebrities. Feel free to ask!
Let’s start making some fika pastries! After listening to instructions – get ready to tie your apron, start to chop and measure the ingredients.
Eat what you’ve created! The best part is saved to last – time to enjoy the amazing home-cooked pastries together with a cup of coffee of course.
Please let us know if you are allergic to anything, for example: gluten, milk, milk-sugar, nut, egg, etc.
Welcome to a great day of culinary fun and cakes – and it will be a day to remember!
- Seeing where food and the rituals of cooking really fit into Swedish culture.
- Learning new recipes and new skills to take with you so you can create your own Swedish feast back home!
- Eating what you make – the best part!
