Our own curated selection of gourmet Swedish Midsummer foods. Including herring, gourmet meatballs, Scandi cheese (may vary depending on stock), lovely dark rye crispbread as well as a nice bottle of aquavit. With this selection you have the basis for a great Midsummer Feast suitable for 2-3 people.
Please note this is not ready to serve – so is not suitable for a picnic as it comes. It is, however, perfect if you are having a get together at home as all the elements are easy to prepare. We recommend some boiled new potatoes, a leafy green salad and perhaps some crusty fresh bread to serve. See below for suggestion.

To keep it simple, here is what we suggest:
Place the meatballs in an oven tray and place in a medium hot oven until warmed through and golden.
In the meantime, put the herrings in individual bowls, place the cheese on a serving platter and arrange the salmon on another. Put some bread and crispbread in a bread basket and put out some butter. Some boiled new potatoes are lovely with the herring – as is a tub of sour cream or creme fraiche. Make a simple leafy green salad and open the tub of beetroot salad – place the contents in a small serving bowl, if desired.
Remove the meatballs from the oven and serve in a bowl on the table with the rest of your feast – don’t forget the mini cinnamon buns for afters!
Let everyone serve themselves and make sure you have a shot of aquavit to kick things off. Enjoy!
