GO FOR A SWEDISH FIKA IN STOCKHOLM AND
DISCOVER THE NEW NORDIC CUISINE
Have you heard of the unique Swedish tradition of fika? It basically means to meet for coffee and snacks but the social aspect is just as important. Sweden enjoys a highly developed culture when it comes to coffee and baked goods, and all over Stockholm you will find cafés and cake shops brimming with atmosphere, character and quality, whether it’s traditional or contemporary-creative.
The New Nordic food phenomenon was truly a bottom-up movement that started with a group of food aficionados and chefs who had a love for Nordic food. They set up a manifesto underlining not only the importance of wholesome green ingredients and sustainable farming methods, but also stressing the overall social responsibility of the food industry. New Nordic cuisine takes Scandinavian culinary tradition to a new level in an innovative version, using carefully selected ingredients and a focus on locally produced, organic foods.
