Berry Crush

Saft Berry Crush

Filled with plenty of fresh fruit, crushes are easy cocktails to make—and deliciously summery. In this cocktail, we mixed strawberries and blackberries with Tillman’s saft from the Sweden Box. Feel free to swap out other types of fruit as well.

Ice Cream Sundae

Emma Bengtsson’s Ice Cream Sundae

In this take on the familiar sundae, curator of the Sweden Box Emma Bengtsson melts fudge onto ice cream and crumbles cookies on top. It’s easy to make and sure to please a hungry crowd. Bengtsson uses vanilla ice cream, but the recipe works well with any other type as well.

Gravlax with Hovmastar Sauce

Homemade Swedish Hovmastar Sauce

Hovmastar sauce is a bright and acidic Scandinavian condiment that elevates the natural flavors of seafood, especially smoked fish.

Swedish Cucumber Salad

Cucumber and Radish Salad

This salad makes a refreshingly light side to any main course and is an essential component to the traditional sörgåsbord. Crisp cucumber and radish are an excellent vehicle for the acidic bite of vinegar and the herbaceous note of dill. This dish also features the award-winning Liss Ellas mustard from the Sweden Box!

Salmon and Dill Toasts

This easy-to-make appetizer celebrates the best of the Sweden Box: bright mustard and crisp flatbread with fish, herbs, and sour cream. It’s a taste of Sweden all in one bite.

Swedish Dumplings

Emma Bengtsson’s Swedish Dumplings

These traditional dumplings from curating chef Emma Bengtsson are filled with an onion and bacon mixture made with the spectacular mustard from the Sweden Box. Tradition calls for serving them with tangy and slightly sweet lingonberry jam.

Honey and Currant Cake

Honey and Currant Cake

Typically served during the holidays and on other special occasions, Swedish honey cakes are part of a tradition that spans centuries. Many attribute the origins to ancient Egypt! In the classic recipe, a mixture of honey and flour is left to ferment for weeks—or even months—but this version speeds up the process.

Potato and Herring Salad

Herring and Potato Salad

An incredibly popular ingredient in Swedish cuisine, pickled herring can be prepared in more ways than we can count! A must-have for the smörgåsbord, this potato salad lightens the salty flavor of the fish with starchy potatoes and a delicious dressing. Crumbled potato chips garnish the dish in the signature Swedish fashion.

Pasteis de Nata

Pasteis de Nata

Rumor has it that this dessert was born of necessity due to a surplus of egg yolks in Portuguese holy orders: egg whites were used to starch clothes, so the yolks were incorporated into these little tarts. Topped with pumpkin jam, they’re divine. Get it?
