Midsummer in Stockholm

June 27, 2011 (STOCKHOLM)

I filed a brief report about Midsummer for P.R.I.'s "The World" last Friday, but thought I would shoot some extra video and share some of my photo album with you. We packed a ton of eating in, of course, and so I tried to take notes where appropriate. Among the many other things I've fallen hard for (besides the ubiquitous herring and knackebrod, or flatbread), I'll happily go on the record as saying Sweden has the best bread and butter service in the world, due in part to the vast array of sizes, shapes, artisanal ingredients, techniques and range of always-served-soft-at-room-temp butters (sorry, France). I also ran into a couple of Chicagoans while I was here, and I'll have that story tomorrow afternoon in another post.

Skal!

Here's a partial list of some of the places we ate:

Restaurant Sturehof

Dessert & Choklad

Mathias Dahlgren Matbaren

Restaurant Gubbhyllan

Rosendahls tradgard (Bakery)

Fjaderholmarnas krog
