A taste of Gothenburg, Sweden

A taste of Gothenburg, Sweden

In May, we traveled a very long way away to see for ourselves this little country with some big exports, and it was such a treat to discover Sweden in the springtime. What follows is my Swedish smorgasbord (smorgas meaning ‘open sandwich’ and ‘bord’ meaning table) of what we ate and drank, for the handful of days we thoroughly enjoyed together, in Goteburg, Sweden.

Turns out chocolate and beetroot are a really good match in a cake. Be warned though you will end up with lolly-pink stained fingers making this cake!
