Discovering foodie delights in Malmö

Tourist board brings visitors and local families together

Malmö has some of the Sweden’s best restaurants, the respected British newspaper The Guardian reports. But a memorable foodie exploration can occur at a dinner party with a local family, thanks to a new scheme run by the tourist board.

Visitors can dine with locals, as the author of the article discovers when “Björn Carlstedt answers his front door in stripy socks and red jeans and shows us into his sunlit dining room, where the table’s neatly laid and decorated with tiny Swedish flags.”

A smörgåsbord of homemade fare is presented, including dark rye bread, herring with mustard sauce, potatoes with anchovies and cream, meatballs and “äggakaka”, an omelette pancake with lingonberry dressing and local bacon. Local beers  and aquavit with cumin, star anise and fennel flows freely.

The city also boasts some of the country’s most special restaurants, such as Salt & Brygga, Sweden’s first Slow Food-certified restaurant, serving organic delicacies from the Skåne region; Bastard, where chef Andreas Dahlberg serves an innovative dining menu; and television chef Tareq Taylor’s laid-back Slottsträdgårdens café.
