Menu: A Swedish Winter Smorgasbord
Swedish winters are notorious for bone-chilling winds and below-freezing temperatures. To counteract Mother Nature, Swedes have developed a wonderful feasting and drinking culture surrounding the holiday season. Warm up your own holiday with this traditional smörgåsbord spread featuring dishes served in Swedish homes around the holidays, from a beet and herring salad to salmon gravlax, and even Julskinka (Christmas ham). Be sure to toast to good friends and family with a glass of aquavit. Skål!
