A Taste of Sweden in London

East London’s Truman Brewery is being transformed into a traditional Swedish ‘Red Cottage’ bringing a taste of Sweden to London this autumn. Artisanal produce from the regions of West Sweden, Skåne and Luleå in Swedish Lapland will be available to sample during the three day pop up which also features a bookable and free lunch time club between 12 pm and 2 pm from the 22nd – 24th October.

And to make the pop up as authentic as possible, the reconstructed traditional red and white cottage will be transformed each and every day to tie in with the varying foods from each of the three regions.

Monday 22nd enjoy the culinary delights of Luleå, in Swedish Lapland. Top of the menu will be Kalix Löjrom a rare type of caviar only found in this corner of the Baltic sea.  So special it is referred to in foodie circles as the ‘gold of the North’ and promises to give Londoners with a penchant for the exotic a real treat. Other delicacies will include fillet of reindeer and cloudberries, a typically Swedish mountain and forest berry found in Swedish Lapland.  All this will be served against the theatrical backdrop of the Northern Lights, which will be projected onto the walls of the cottage.

Tuesday 23rd will see the Red Cottage travel further south to the dramatic coastal region of West Sweden, home to some of the best seafood in the world.  Visitors will experience such delights as crayfish ‘toast skagen’, an open sandwich Swedish style, crayfish & mushroom soup made with locally sourced forest mushrooms, goats cheese crème with baked cocktail tomatoes and scrambled eggs with mackerel and pickled onions.

Wednesday 24th October will be hosted by our friends in the southern region of Skåne who are known for their relaxed and organic lifestyle. Guests will be treated to their version of the great St Martins Day Goose Feast which traditionally takes place in mid-November. Dishes will include mouthwatering roasted goose served with apple compote & thyme, organic eggs cooked at 63.5 degrees with local cheese & forest mushrooms and black soup made with local apples & sausage.

Places at the Red Cottage are limited and reservations will be on a first come first serve basis. To reserve your free place, please RSVP to: rsvp@redcottagesweden.co.uk
