An illustrated lifestyle cookbook on the Swedish tradition of fika--a twice-daily coffee break. It includes recipes for traditional baked goods, information and anecdotes about Swedish coffee culture, and the roots and modern incarnations of this cherished custom. Fika can be had alone or in groups, indoors or outdoors, while traveling or at home. Fika reflects the Swedish ideal of slowing down to appreciate lifeÕs small joys, such as chatting with friends and colleagues over a cup of good coffee and a sweet treat.
In this adorable illustrated cookbook, Anna Brones and Johanna Kindvall share nearly fifty classic recipes from their motherland—from cinnamon buns and ginger snaps to rhubarb cordial and rye bread. These recipes allow all of us to enjoy this charming tradition regardless of where we live. Invite your friends to take a short fika break and see how much nicer the day becomes.
