Smörgåsbord: Deliciously Simple Modern Scandinavian Recipes | Peter’s Yard with Signe Johansen
Traditionally served whenever family and friends get together, Smörgåsbords are a celebration of food and gatherings. They have always featured crispbreads (knäckebröd), which in Sweden are eaten like bread.
This collection of simple recipes reflects the modern, more informal approach to smorgasbords, so as well as classics, such as skagen (prawn salad) and citrus and spice cured gravadlax, it includes dishes such as fried chanterelles on toasted sourdough, barbecued zesty cod burgers and orange and ginger waffles with rhubarb compote.
There are two menus per chapter, each inspired by Swedish celebrations, but by no means clinging firmly to them. We hope you enjoy our new style of Smörgåsbord and find inspiration in these recipes and menus.
