"Fika (pronounced fee-ka) is a Swedish custom, a kind of social coffee break where people gather to have a cup of coffee or tea and a few nibbles. Fika is such an important part of life in Sweden that it is both a verb and a noun."
At my friend Lotta's beautiful home she treated us to handcrafted, labor of love beautiful Swedish cookies and cardamom buns, Glögg simmering to the perfect temperature and conversation with loved ones.
I'm trying to talk Lotta into teaching a Swedish baking class at Flour Pot- Wouldn't that be fun?!
