Capital Cooking Goes To Sweden: Part 1

This Friday, March 16th, Lauren DeSantis visits the capital city of Sweden in the first part of a three part series.  We had an amazing kick off party last night at the House of Sweden.  (Photos coming soon)  

During the first episode of Capital Cooking in Sweden, Lauren visits Östermalms Saluhall.  The market started in 1888 and is the oldest in Stockholm. Lisa Elmquist gives her a taste of the famous cured salmon.  

Then, Lauren is guided through Stockholm by an expert with an in-depth historical knowledge of the country.  She explored the Old Town area with the cobblestone streets and lots of ice cream shops.  

Next, Lauren cooked with Henrik Norström, creative director/chef at Lux Stockholm (awarded with one star in Guide Michelin 2011).

Following that, Lauren mixed up some awesome cocktails at F12 Terrassen.

After learning some cocktails, Lauren had to check out one of the hottest night clubs in Sweden.  Tradgarden is like nowhere I've ever been before.  This massive night club is under a bridge outside with tons of ping pong and other games.  What a great way to enjoy the Swedish summer by hanging with friends outside.  The Swedes know how to party and introduced me to the Fireball shots.  Hasn't made it back to the US yet, but you can find out more when you watch Capital Cooking's Swedish Adventure.
