Sill & Potatis – A delicacy crafted in Sweden

We all have a dish that is special to us. It could be a dish that reminds us of a person we are close to, or a place that we associate it with.

Sweden is a place like this.

One such dish is herring and potatoes – a dish that Swedes have been enjoying for hundreds of years.

A dish that has been preserved and refined through the generations.

A simple dish once classed as poor man’s food, has been elevated to its now lofty position by famous Swedish chefs revisiting Sweden’s pantry for new taste sensations.

Herring is caught in the clean waters off the west coast, pickled in vinegar, flavoured with spices and vegetables and conserved. Many Swedish families have their own secret recipes to retain the maximum amount of taste.

Potatoes harvested on Swedish farms are already bursting with flavour so salt and dill is all they need.

To this day we serve herring and potatoes at all major festivities in Sweden. Together with our loved ones and a schnapps or two, we still enjoy its characteristic taste.
