Try Swedish food in Sweden!
We are collaborating with Discover the World to highlight their excellent range of holidays in Sweden, from going in search of the northern lights to self-drive adventures. With itineraries spread between Swedish Lapland in the north and Skåne in the south, discover Swedish cuisine in all its glory with Discover the World.
SwedishFood.com's editor, John Duxbury, explained "Of all the travel companies that organise holidays to Sweden I am in no doubt that Discover the World are the best. I chose them to organise my visit to the ICEHOTEL last year because of their reputation for organising inspirational holidays and because they are the only company that fly direct to northern Sweden, saving valuable time. The food was stunning and the activities were really good fun! It was one of our best ever holidays."
After careful research we are pleased to be able to announce that we have decided to recommend TotallySwedish, a UK based suppliers of Swedish ingredients. The company have two London shops plus an online shop where you can order cloudberry jam, Västerbottensost, rårörda lingon (raw lingonberry jam) and all manner of other ingredients that can be difficult to find anywhere else.
