Advent calendar: Fika – the art of the Swedish coffee break

Today’s fun read was Fika: The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break, with Recipes for Pastries, Breads, and Other Treats.

Fika is to Sweden what kaffe is to Norwegians – only even more so. It’s coffee, but it is not just grabbing a cup to go at a Starbucks. And it is not just covered by the Norwegian meal that somehow comes after dessert when you’ve visited your grandmother. It is sitting down, and taking a break from your day to enjoy the coffee, and something to bite in alongside it.

It is going on a train ride and bringing pastry and a coffee cup (or tea) to enjoy.

The book is fun and sweet and nicely illustrated.
