Phone help


We have invested in a new fully responsive content management system to improve the readability of the site on all devices, but especially on smartphones.

Designed for tablets

The site has been designed to be read on tablet computers because most people use a tablet in their kitchen if they are following a recipe online.

Nonetheless, we have also designed the site to work well on smartphones because most people use a smartphone when shopping and, as the displays improve, an increasing number of people use a smartphone in their kitchen as well.

Displaying ingredients

Ingredients displayed on a smart phone

Please note that for some recipes the lists of ingredients is easier to read if you turn your phone sideways (into landscape mode). Everything else can be read easily with your phone held either way round.

Accessing the main menu

How to access a smart phone's responsive menu

To access the main menu (Home, About us, Contact, Classics, Shopping, Swedishfoodpedia and Visiting Sweden), click on the three yellow lines  on the right hand side of the screen, beneath the Search box. It is called a responsive menu, although sometimes it is called a burger because it looks a bit like a burger! When you click on it other menus will appear.

Working off-line

At the bottom of each recipe page there is an option to download our recipe to your phone. This is to enable you to check ingredients in a shop or on a market without a phone signal or wifi.


We hope you like our new look. We have tested every page, so we hope you find everything working well. However, if you come across a glitch please contact us by clicking here, so that we can rectify the problem.
