WIN a signed copy of our new ScandiKitchen Christmas book!

We’re so very excited to share our new book with you.

Following on from the massive successes of our Bronte’s other five books, ScandiKitchen Christmas is the book she always wanted to write and share.

It was written with lots of love during last year’s cold days.

The book is stuffed full of traditional recipes – from Swedish ham to Danish meatballs, rice pudding, biscuits, glögg, æbleskiver, honey cake, advent canapés and much, much more.

The book is available to pre-order on Amazon right now –and as soon as stock is released towards the end of September, signed copies will be available on our website here, too. Of course, it will also be available in all good bookshops.

To celebrate the release, we’re giving away signed copies of the book – that 3 lucky winners will receive before the book is officially released!

To be in with a chance of winning, tag yourself in our instagram post right here.

Deadline: 11/9/2018 at midnight.

We’ll pick the winners at random from tags in the post on Wednesday 12th September 2018 and post the books shortly after.

The Bridge – hotdog style

The Bridge – hotdog style

When it comes to food, we Danes and Swedes have our little differences. Take our hotdogs, for example – and here’s our The Bridge Hot Dog version. Do you prefer you hotdog Danish or Swedish?!

The hugely popular Nordic noir TV series The Bridge Season 4 is currently showing on BBC 2 on Friday nights. It is the final series and the one that will hopefully provide all the answers.

For those who do not know, the story started when a body was found on the bridge that connects Denmark with Sweden – with half of the body on the Danish side, half on the Swedish, forcing the two crime teams to work together.

For us Scandies, The Bridge provide an amazing way to experience both different languages spoken in one series, with everybody understanding what is going on. The funny thing is, there’s only 600 words difference between Danish and Swedish, so we actually do understand each other most of the time, even when we just speak our own languages.

Watch this space for an upcoming competition to win the entire box set of The Bridge season 1-4 along with LOTS of Danish and Swedish goodies to go with it. More details will be released next week. A massive 13 DVDs: you will literally not need to leave your house for the entire weekend if you win this box set and all that food.

We’ll be running this competition together with the nice people at Arrow Films. More next week.

Pimp my Gingerbread House 2017

November 23, 2017 | Leave a comment


Pimp my Gingerbread House 2017

It’s time for the annual Pimp my Gingerbread House Competition, now in it’s 7th year.

Every year we ask you to take a gingerbread house kit (you can get one here or at that place that sells great value book cases… and at many other stores). We want to see what you can do with it! This competition is not about the basic baking of a gingerbread house – but much more about what you can do with what comes out of a packet (or two, if you want to make one house out of several packs).

You can decorate, chop, move, glue, add-to, mix together, chop in half, dip in glitter – whatever you want, as long as you use the basic set as a base. In the past, we have had anything from Zombie houses, Norwegian stave Churches, an X-Factor house, Murder in the Gingerbread House, Dragons, Trolls and even an almost life sized Sandi Toksvig made out of icing who lived in the house for a while.

This year, we have narrowed the categories a bit. We have two categories:

1. Adult – creative, stunning, detailed – we’ll choose one main winner.
2. Kids (any age – we’ll judge it based on whether it’s a 3 year old who loves unicorns or a 14 year old who loves glitter). One winner in this category also.

What you need to do:
Make a gingerbread house, take a few photos – then send them to iloveherring@scandikitchen.co.uk before 18th December 2017 – we’ll pick a winner and let them know by email so we can get the prize to them on the last shipment before the big day (hopefully) or for pick up in store before 23rd December. If you choose to tag it on social media, please use either #Pimpmygingerbreadhouse or #PMGH

The Prizes

Adult: A massive lovely box of treats – from Bronte’s book North (signed), ginger biscuits, chocolates, mulled wine, marzipan and much more – value around £75

Kids: So many sweets your parents wont talk to us for a good long while.

The small print:
Two prizes offered, one for each category. We will post some pictures on instagram but not all. We reserve the right to post pictures you send in. No alternative prize, no cash alternative. One winner per category. No purchases necessary (any gingerbread template will be accepted as long as it is in similar shape with the basic one we also sell. This is a fun competition, not Masterchef – enjoy it and have fun. The winner will be picked by 3 of us and we’ll have a vote and our decision is final.

Show Us Your Buns

September 28, 2017 | Leave a comment

Cinnamon Bun Day

Use #ShowUsYourBuns on social media so we can find you.

The countdown is on to Sweden’s most favourite day of the year. No, not Kalles Kaviar-day. No, not Snabbmakaronens day… We are, of course, talking about Cinnamon Bun Day (Kanelbullensdag)

Oh, glorious cinnamon bun. Adopted and bastardised by the Americans (that’s when you know you’ve made it in life) who covers them in icing and caramel and we don’t even know (Swedes will never do that). But what we do know is this – a cinnamon bun, whichever way it comes, is lovely. Comforting in its aromatic, plush little curvy self – as delicious with a cup of strong black coffee for breakfast, as with a glass of ice cold cordial on a sunny summer afternoon or split in half and turned into Swedish French toast (oh yes we did!).

Enough talk – on to the buns. This year, as every year – we’d love to see your buns. Big buns, small buns, wonky buns, shiny buns, plain buns or perfect buns. Rolled or knotted or swirled or #failed.

Use #ShowUsYourBuns on social media so we can find you!

There’s only one rule – they have to be homemade, by you alone or as a team effort, and contain cinnamon (OK, that’s two rules). Take a picture and email it to us – we will share the best ones on our instagram and Facebook page. We may pick a lucky winner, too – one lucky person wins a copy of our new book Nørth and a big box of Scandinavian goodies (we’re talking chocolate, liquorice and more).

So, ready steady bake!

Click here for some of our favourite bun recipes – but you don’t have to use one of ours, if you have a favourite recipe or another one you want to try, go for it.

Mail your photos to iloveherring@scandikitchen.co.uk before noon 6th October. Usual competition rules apply.

WIN an entire case of KvikkLunsj! (64 bars)

June 2, 2017 | Leave a comment

WIN a huge amount of Kvikk Lunsj

A few weeks ago, Kvikklunsj once again beat KitKat in the court case about KitKat trying to copyright the four-finger chocolate bar.

Kvikklunsj has been around for decades – and is the most favoured chocolate bar by all Norwegians in the world. And to be fair, most people who taste Kvikklunsj go to the other side soon after. It’s truly delicious.

Kvikklunsj (made by Freia Chocolates) is so iconic in Norway – no Norwegian will dream of going on a hike or skiing without one of these in his pocket. And an orange. You must always bring an orange, too (balance and all that).

Anyway, you can read ALL about the day when The Guardian did a taste test between Kvikklunsj and Kitkat here.

We’ve decided to give away a whole, full box of Kvikklunsj. That is a LOT of Kvikklunsj – more than a month’s worth if you eat one every day. In fact, it’s 64 bars of chocolates – times four fingers. That’s a LOT. This could also be used as a treat for a class of school children on a trip. It could keep your colleagues in the office SO happy and brighten up their afternoon. Or maybe you just want to have a Kvikklunsj party? Or just keep them ALL to yourself?

To enter, tell us how you would share your box of Kvikklunsj. Or not. And why.

We will simply pick a winner from the pile of good answers.

Send your entry to: Iloveherring@scandikitchen.co.uk before Monday 5th June at midday.

Rules: We can only have one winner – who will be picked by random of all entries where people have told us what they intend to do with their box of Kvikklunsj. We reserve the right to talk on social media about some of these suggestions. One winner only. No alternative. UK only. No cash alternative. One entry per person. Our decision is final. If you eat them all on your own, sorry, but you might need to buy some pants with elasticated waistbands – not our fault.
