Swedish Cooking

Love the yummy covers
They have a vintage feel to them ☺

Pickled herring is one of my favourite foods
Must be in my gene pool lol

I could eat salmon every day, especially the cured spiced salmon
called 'gravlax'

The salmon is cured in a mixture of salt, sugar, white pepper and dill.

Home-made meatballs are so much yummier than the ones you buy at IKEA!

My collection of Swedish and Scandinavian cookbooks. 
These are all in English so hubby also can use them! 
Have heaps of cookbooks in Swedish too.
Been collecting them for years.

We have plenty of Australian cookbooks as well.
At the moment, some are in the kitchen and 
others are tucked away in a cupboard.

Need a BIG book shelf to display them all... ☺
Maybe one day! *dreaming*

  2. That is a lot of cookbooks! Do you use all of them or find that you use a couple of them more than the others? Visiting from Blue Monday.

  3. wow! you have quite the cook book collection. I admit i was confused by the photo of pickled herring. I have never had pickled herring. I don't believe I've ever had herring for that matter. And I was wondering what was in the jar :-)

  13. A perfect post for those that enjoys cooking. I used to do a lot of it, but not anymore. I just let others and enjoy it.

  14. Hi Pernilla, I agree that homemade meatballs beat Ikea's like no other. Now the pickled Herring, not sure if I could go there. lol! Never tried it before. I love salmon, but really don't care for it smoked. I need my fish to be cooked well and not taste, well fishy. ha-ha! Thanks for sharing you collection of fun cookbooks with Share Your Cup.
