What we find on the Swedish Christmas dinner table, and why

Food in abundance –  sweet, salt, hot and cold, all in a delicious combination found on the Swedish Christmas “smörgåsbord”. But why does the traditional Swedish Christmas dinner look this way?

To shed some light on the Swedish Christmas food traditions, we asked food culture researcher at Lund University, Håkan Jönsson to present some of the key ingredients on the Christmas dinner table and why they are there.

Have a delicious Christmas!
