PRESS RELEASE October 2014
Sweden will be present at Salone del Gusto and Terra Madre in Turin from the 23-27th of October with an interesting mix of small, high quality producers and food organizations from different regions in Sweden, such as Skåne, West Sweden and Sápmi. Locally produced reindeer, oysters, salmon, whisky, beer, honey, cheese, sourdough and crisp bread are some of the products that will be showcased.
Sweden is one of the up & coming culinary regions of Europe with a unique approach to food. The climate is diverse and the country stretches more than 1500 kilometers, from well above the polar circle to the fertile plains of the southern tip. Sweden covers nine climate zones, allowing for a rich diversity of flora, fauna and traditions with a very interesting regional cuisine.
Exhibitors from the very north are VisitSápmi, Slow Food Sápmi and Renlycka. Sápmi is the name of Sámi land traditionally inhabited by the Sami people and reindeer management. The Swedish part extends from central Sweden in Dalarna to Lapland - immense forests, beautiful lakes, mountains and rivers. VisitSápmi is the Sámi initiative to organize and promote sustainable and ethical Sámi tourism, including the development of the Sápmi Experience - a quality label for Sámi entrepreneurs as a traveler’s guide to the Sámi way of life. The company Renbiten is presented in Salone del Gusto and they combine herding with its own processing, shop & cafe and Sami experiences.
Slow Food Sápmi (SFS) is an organization that includes the Sámi regions of Sweden, Finland, Norway and Russia, and represents Sámi food entrepreneurs and Sámi people interested in Sámi cuisine and the sustainable use of natural resources. Renlycka is a quality label that is co-owned by reindeer farmers. Reindeer meat is wild, exotic and healthy meat that offers a taste of genuine Sámi food culture.
The producers represented at Salone del Gusto are Idre Ren & Vilt, Lapplandsvilt, Fjällvilt, Renprodukter and Brurskanken Rein, Norway with different products made from reindeer meat, like dried sausage and a Sámi specialty called souvas - meat which is first salted and then smoked
The beautiful southern Swedish region of Skåne acts as Sweden’s main pantry – in spite of being a relatively small area, Skåne produces a third of the country’s food. Producers here make a wide range of beverages like cider, juice, vodka, beer, whisky and wine. The region also provides fish caught along the coasts, wild venison from the forest, and sugar beets, wheat and apples from its fields. It offers all kinds of food experiences – from smokehouses to fine dining restaurants. The organization Taste of Skåne is focused on developing small-scale food production and culinary tourism.
The exhibitors from Skåne are: Röstånga Mölla, a small family business selling extra-fermented sourdough bread baked in their farm bakery using freshly milled organic flour (the family also manages several cafés in Skåne); Spirit of Hven Backafallsbyn, a family owned distillery located on the small island of Hven offering organic oak-matured whiskey, Aquavit and organic gin and vodka, the final distillation of which is carried out in unique copper stills; and Gylleneidens Naturskafferi and Bidrottningen, who produce marmalades, berries, wild herbs and honey using traditional methods in order to preserve as much flavor and aroma in the products as possible.
With its varied landscape - breathtaking coastlines, beautiful countryside, lakes and deep forests - West Sweden is an ideal destination for gastronomic exploration. The area is renowned for having some of the best shellfish in the world. Due to the cold and clean waters, shellfish grow slowly here – yielding a wonderfully fresh salt-sea flavor. Visitors can learn how to catch and cook them on a seafood safari. The inland forests provide a variety of game, berries and fresh fish, whilst the countryside produces fine cheeses, beer and schnapps. Gothenburg, the gateway to West Sweden, is a green coastal city with a lively cultural scene and top-notch cuisine with no less than five restaurants with Michelin stars.
The producers from West Sweden include: The smokehouse in Strömstad, Everts Sjöbod, Östra Gärde farm and Gettergoda Gelato. They will present locally raised oysters and mushrooms, ecological smoked salmon and salted mackerel, porter beer and artisan goat’s milk ice cream.
From the county of Jämtland in the north of Sweden, Mörsjö Deli, a family-run business and manufacturer of gourmet specialties, introduces their Tunnbröd (thin bread), made for centuries according to their ancient recipe. It goes great with appetizers. www.morsjo.se

Westschweden ist wettertechnisch immer für eine Überraschung gut… Auf dem Weg von Västergötland nach Bohuslän hat es “Katzen und Hunde” geregnet. Aber kaum hatten wir die Tjörnbrücke überquert, würden wir mit Sonne satt begrüßt. 😍 (på/i Klädesholmen)
When in West Sweden: Geht UNBEDINGT bei Stefan vom Restaurant Hvita Hjorten im Victoriahuset essen. Es gibt selbst gezogenes (Riesen-)Gemüse aus dem benachbarten Schlossgarten, Fisch aus dem angrenzenden Vänernsee und Wild aus den umliegenden Wäldern. Alles Bio, alles lecker, alles super. #foodkoma (på/i Restaurang Hvita Hjorten)
Die Dämmerung taucht Läckö Slott in ein mystisches Licht und im Hintergrund peitschen die Wellen gegen die Klippen. Hoffentlich spukt es hier nicht… 👻 (på/i Läckö Slott)
A home away from home. Wir wissen auch nicht, wie @scandicinternational das immer wieder hinbekommt… Der Hoteltip des Tages ist demzufolge das charmante Hotel Scandic Rubinen in Göteborg. *Tusch* 👏 (på/i Scandic Rubinen)

Nya Carnegiebryggeriet is a newly-opened craft brewery with its own restaurant, situated by the shore in Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm. The brewery is a collaboration between Carlsberg Sweden, Brooklyn Brewery and free investors, but will not be making any Brooklyn beer. Instead, Nya Carnegiebryggeriet is a creator of small scale Swedish craft beer, with something to offer for both connoisseurs, beer enthusiasts, and curious amateurs. The restaurant serves food that has been adapted to both the season and what is currently on tap.
Nya Carnegiebryggeriet is situated in the historical Luma factory, facing Hammarby Lake with a view of southern Södermalm. The outdoor patio is open all summer on Wednesday-Sunday, with plenty of space for happy holiday makers and curious Stockholmers.
For visitors eager to learn more about beer and brewing, Nya Carnegiebryggeriet offers guided tours around the brewery on Saturdays and Sundays between 1pm and 4 pm. The tours are free and cannot be booked in advance.
The easiest way to access Nya Carnegiebryggeriet is by bus 22B to Luma, by free-of-charge ferry from Barnängsbryggan or with the boat M/S Emelie from Nybrokajen.

Nirgendwo in Schweden kommen Fisch und Schalentiere frischer auf den Tisch als in Westschweden! (på/i Bryggan Fjällbacka)
Willkommen in Smögen! Hier seht ihr das wohl am meisten fotografierte Motiv des Ortes: die kleinen, bunten Bootshäuser auf Smögenbryggan. 📷 (på/i Smögenbryggan)
Glad Midsommar! Heute wird überall in Schweden der längste Tag des Jahres gefeiert. So wie auf diesem Foto (aus 2013) in Rättvik, Dalarna. Viele finden, dass Dalarna die wohl schwedischste aller schwedischen Regionen ist. 💐☀👒
Premiere! Heute waren wir endlich bei @koppi_roasters in Helsingborg (dem besten Café in Schweden!) und haben uns vor Ort von der ausgezeichneten Qualität des Kaffees überzeugt. Definitiv ein Grund wieder hierher zu kommen. Oder am besten gleich ganz hierher zu ziehen. 😉 (på/i Koppi)
Das ist wirklich Outdoor pur! Zwei von drei Kanus haben es trocken bis ans Ziel geschafft. Inklusive 2-3 unfreiwilliger Ausflüge ins Schilf, mehr oder weniger geplante Riverrafting-Einlagen und jeder Menge Gegenwind… 🙀💦 (på/i Söderåsen National Park)
Vorher/Nachher. Gar nicht mal so unanstrengend, so eine Mountainbike-Tour… Und hier kommt ein ganz heißer Tipp von mir: Beim Downhill immer schön den Mund zu machen! 🙊🐝 (på/i Söderåsen National Park)
