About Us

 is dedicated to bringing tried and tasted Swedish recipes to English speakers around the world.

Having visited Sweden regularly for over 20 years and enjoyed the Swedish countryside, its people and, of course, its food, I came to the conclusion that its cuisine was vastly underrated and deserved wider recognition.

As a result, I opened SwedishFood.com in June 2013. I found it hard to find Swedish food recipes in English, so I decided to learn some Swedish, find out more about Swedish food and to share my findings with any other English speakers across the globe who might be interested in Swedish food.

Since opening the site, I have discovered that I am certainly not alone in enjoying Swedish food! Our readership has grown steadily and we now have regular users of the site all over the world.

Enjoy browsing our site and trying our recipes.

Happy cooking!
