Jansson's Temptation

Jansson's Temptation "It's not a creamy gratin, it's more of a rich gratin," says Jernmark of this traditional Swedish side that pairs spiced anchovies with potatoes, onions, and cream. "Everyone makes a different version, but this is fairly traditional." See the recipe for Jansson's Temptation » Go back to A Scandinavian Julbord Christmas »Maxime Iattoni

This recipe was developed by Marcus Jernmark, chef at Aquavit in New York City, as part of the restaurant's traditional julbord spread for Christmas. "It's not a creamy gratin, it's more of a rich gratin," says Jernmark of this traditional Swedish side that pairs spiced anchovies with potatoes, onions, and cream. "Everyone makes a different version, but this is fairly traditional. It's not my story of Swedish traditions — people are coming to Aquavit for the true story of what Scandinavian food is all about."
