Capital Cooking at the House of Sweden

Last week, we introduced select media and friends to the 3 part series of Capital Cooking in Stockholm.  
The event was held at the lovely House of Sweden.  
Chef Frida Johansson created a smorgasbord highlighting famous Swedish dishes including elk kabobs, crayfish soup, Shrimp Skagen, Crayfish skewers and more.  
Chef Frida also made a delicious dessert bar with macaroons, cupcakes and a sea buckthorn cooler.   
Fireball Whiskey was kind enough to send some bottles so the guests could get a taste of the popular Swedish shot at Tragarden.  Even if you missed Part 1 last week on WETA, make sure to catch Part 2 and 3 airing this week and next week. 
Thank you so much to the House of Sweden for hosting such a fabulous event and thank you to all of the media and friends for your continued support.
