  • A Summer Salad with Strawberries and Rye

    Some years ago, after years of studying old Scandinavian and New Nordic cooking, it hit me: A reason why Nordic cooking makes so much sense to me was not just because of my heritage and family culture, but also my…

  • Midsummer Picnic Potato Salad

    Midsummer might just be one of my favorite times of the Scandinavian year—specifically because of the food. Think smoked or cured salmon and pickled herring, potato salad, berries, aquavit, and beer. Celebrations might involve picnics and bonfires, and in Sweden,…
