Transcript of Swedish Cuisine


Sweden is one of the four countries which are classified as scandinavia.
Some people argue Finland is in Scandinavia, but they are wrong.


The biggest country in Scandinavia, it has 9 million people, covering ~500,000 square kilometer.

It contains 25 "län", but can often be divided into North, South and Skåne, which is closest to Denmark.

Each area have their own traditions and cuisine, but they are all very similar, so therefore they are often considered the same.


Swedish Cuisine

Swedish Cuisine is often divided into Summer and winter cuisine.
Summer Cuisine is often more fruits, vegetables, and "lighter" meats, such as fish and poultry.
Winter Cuisine is very often alot of potatoes, "heavier" meats and more thick sauces, such as "brun-sås", a swedish kind of gravy.
Swedish Cuisine

The reason we divide Swedish cuisine into two is because of temperature.
During the winter people need more energy to be able to work, while the warmer summers mean that less energy is needed.

This is based on the traditions rooting from 1900s, when a majority of Sweden's population were farmers, like many other Swedish culinary traditions.
