Swedish Food Lesson to prepare Are
After a day of skiing and some time spent in a Jacuzzi hot tub, what can you eat in Are? Among the main courses, the Swedish food includes soups like the 'Arter med flask', made from pork and peas, and the Tisdagssoppe, made from barley. the star of the Swedish cuisine is fish, especially herring, which is prepared in various ways: smoked, fried, marinated, stewed or served with sour cream. Food suitable for skiers, according to nutritionists, but better in the evening since herring is not always easy to digest.
Meats such as elk, veal, pork and reindeer is also popular in Are and in the rest of Sweden, but less popular than fish dishes. Meat dishes are often accompanied by jams: the most famous is the lingonberry jam. During the Christmas season Are is a magical village, full of emotions as is the Jacuzzi experience.
Ginger is the basis of the traditional Swedish desserts: Christmas cookies called Pepparkakor, a local dessert native to Are is the lussekatter, which are sweets made with raisins and saffron, and Kanelbulle, typical cinnamon rolls that now become a symbol of Swedish cuisine abroad.
Among the spirits the most famous is the punch, born in the mid-eighteenth century, a time when the country had an important role in world trade and, through the Swedish East India Company, was able to have the spices needed to produce it. At birth, it was used as a medicine and eaten warm. Only towards the end of the nineteenth century began to consume it as a drink at room temperature or even cold. Among the typical soft drinks there is the blåbärssoppa, based on blueberry. If you go to Are you must try it, why not in a Jacuzzi hot tub?
