In this episode, I continue my journey throughout Sweden to explore the seafood culture of Sweden’s second-largest city, Gothenburg. Gothenburg is the only major city in Sweden with the Atlantic Ocean at its doorstep and naturally, it is an important trade and fishing town.
I try a Swedish favourite, fried herring – here in Gothenburg herring is either pickled or breaded and fried and served from food trucks. I visit a restaurant whose owner claims to make the best prawn sandwich in the world! Everyone has their version of prawns on toast. Mine is on pumpernickel rye bread and is an amazing starter for a dinner party. (p.228)
Back in my little red cabin, I make my own version of one of the most famous of all Swedish dishes – The Wallenberger. Bursting with flavour, it’s the most succulent burger you’ll ever eat! (p.244)
For dessert, I make my chocolate mud cake. It’s a cake for everyone and what I make for friends who have dietary restrictions. It’s ‘free-from’ most things but full of incredible flavours. (p.126)
I visit some inspirational business like the herring and shrimp sandwich stands and Strömma farm. It’s so encouraging to meet people who believe so much in what they are doing and have honed their craft!
Find all of the recipes in my latest cookbook, The Little Swedish Kitchen, which is available to buy on Amazon!
Some of the items of clothing you might recognise from previous shows or photoshoots. I’ve listed where I got them from, but there’s a high chance that the items may no longer be in stock. Here’s what I was wearing in episode 6:
Petit Bateau yellow raincoat, Hawaii print dress (similar), Uniqlo red cardigan, Audley Shoes, Dark pink lipstick.
