#1744.2 Fika: The Art of Swedish Coffee Break
An illustrated lifestyle cookbook on the Swedish tradition of fika - a twice daily coffee break - including recipes for traditional baked goods, information and anecdotes about Swedish coffee culture, and the roots and modern incarnations of this cherished custom.
Fika can be had alone or in groups, indoors or outdoors, while traveling or at home. A time to take a rest from work and chat with friends or colleagues over a cup and a sweet treat, fika reflects the Swedish ideal of slowing down to appreciate life's small joys. In this adorable illustrated cookbook, Anna Brones and Johanna Kindvall share nearly fifty recipes from their motherland - from cinnamon buns and ginger snaps to rhubarb and rye bread - allowing us to enjoy this charming tradition regardless where we live.
