Upon spending a number of months in Sweden, I fell in love - with the country, the culture, and FIKA! Fika is about so much more than just the food, it is a cultural thing, a way of life. Before heading there, we were organizing a workshop, and wanted to skip one of the Fika breaks, planning to let students go early. We didn't understand the ruckus made when we made this suggestion. But oh, spend a little time in Sweden, and you will quickly understand - you just don't mess with Fika, and I get it, and completely agree. What's amazing is that in this culture they have their Fika typically twice a day - that's two sweets daily - and yet the entire country seems trim, absolutely svelte. Part of it is due, I'm sure, to genetics, and part to the fact that it is a largely walkable country, however, I suspect too that the ability to look forward to Fika actually helps reduce one's urges to respond to food cravings. I mean, who needs to binge when you know that at 10:30 and 3:30 you're going to have your kaffe and treat? This book explores some of the history and cultural meaning behind fika, while also presenting all of the important recipes, with clear, easy-to-follow directions.-Lilcreative
I'm an american born Swede and grew up preparing the egg coffee while getting ready for school and being served wonderful dishes prepared by my Swedish speaking mother. So why five stars on this book. The first recipe prepared using this book was the cardamon Cake. Three Tbsp of cardamon and three Tbsp of lemon juice with three separated eggs and 1/4 cup of brown sugar. Was it good you ask? It vanished into thin air in less than 8 hrs. while sitting on the counter. The ingredient combination is flavor addictive. This recipe automatically added itself to the Lutheran church coffee list.-Craig 
Cute book, but the introductory section explaining the concept of fika is a bit belabored and even tedious. I had the impression that the authors didn't have quite enough material for a book and were stretching what they had. Even the typography and layout seem designed to fill out the pages. I own several Scandinavian baking books (along with a couple of general Scandinavian cookbooks and a host of other ethnic cookbooks) and this one is the least interesting to me. Still, if like your cookbooks short and sweet, this could be a good choice.-Mariolina
