I have written about “fika” previously. Something that is inevitable in Sweden. This evening I had fika with my auntie and her previous colleague. They have worked together as anaesthesia nurses at intensive care. I invited them for cake, a pie with rhubarb and strawberries. Rhubarbs from the countryside, an early taste of Midsummer. This spring I have noticed that it is easier to find strawberries early in the season. Fresh, and also tasty.
Fika is a part of Swedish culture. You make a cake, cookies and/or cinnamon rolls. To go with that you often have a cup of coffee. We had tea this evening. What is your favourite fika?
This evening is almost tropical. Summertime is here to stay.
