I have finished 8 pages about typical Swedish food we eat in Sweden, plus an intro page --> Swedish food, where you can see which Swedish food I have written about. I have added this section under "About Sweden" in the menu. On each Swedish food page I have included some history about why we eat this in Sweden and how I like to eat it. On a few pages I have also shared some Swedish food recipes.

Before I introduce these pages I want to thank all of you who helped me with suggestions on which Swedish food I should write about. Luke you mentioned that "the British love the root vegetable called the Swede". I had never heard that expression before, so I looked it up. When I realized what it was, I can't say that I have ever cooked it. I don't even remember if I have ever eaten it, hehe. This vegetable is also called "The rutabaga" or in Swedish kålrot - cabbage root (literal translation). You can read more about it here.

Crysta Wille asked me about Krumkake. It took me a while before I understood that it was waffles, in Swedish våfflor. I have written a bit about our Waffle Day, which is when we eat waffles all over Sweden, on my Swedish traditions page. And because I'm going to expand that page as well, I'll include recipe and more info there instead. But for now, my new Swedish food pages are:
Falukorv Swedish meatballs Pickled herring Swedish pancakes
Kroppkakor Isterband Pytt i Panna Janssons temptation
I have also added a comment section on each page, so feel free to leave comments. :-)
