A Taste of Sweden with this Swedish Meatball Recipe

Sweden is a great region, and Swedish food is a great ethnic food. At its best, Swedish food is excellent, largely meat-, fish- and potato-based, but varied and generally tasty and filling.

In the last few decades immigrants from all over the world have enriched Swedish food culture with a host of exciting dishes.

Typically classical Swedish cooking includes lots of seafood, herring in particular; open faced sandwiches; and Swedish meatballs, a smörgåsbord favorite: Swedish meatballs (köttbullar).

Swedish desserts may include lingonberries – a high bush cranberry, and used a lot in Swedish cooking.

If you equate Swedish food with smorgasbord, meatballs and dill, think again! Although these are great delights, you’ll enjoy a wide range of tasty, fresh-cooked food in Sweden.

A quarter of my family are Swedish, originating from Gothenburg. These genuine Swedish recipes have been collected by our family over the years and are now being shared with you as a celebration of Swedish traditions and food.
