My name is Anette Larsson and I am the person behind Scandinavian Simple Eating. I just moved to the US. I am living together with my husband Martin in Florida. I come from Sweden, one of the three countries part of “Scandinavia”. The other two countries are Denmark and Norway and I have actually lived in all three countries. They are all different, but one of the things we have in common is the way we think about food and how we prepare food.
I love food and I am proud of the Scandinavian food culture. Scandinavian food has long traditions. At the same time, just like Scandinavian people, it is inspired by other cultures and modernized. This makes Scandinavian eating simple, healthy and elegant.
I have realised that the Americans knows a lot about the Central European countries, but not so much about the Scandinavian countries. This I want to change. And why? Because I think we have a culture and food culture that you would love. If you just knew a bit more about it.
Therefore I have started Scandinavian Simple Eating. I will inspire you with Scandinavian simple and healthy recipes. With the Scandinavian food and our modern style, I think you all will find new favourite recipes that you and your family can enjoy either a stressful Monday evening or with friends and family coming over for a Sunday dinner. And we also like sweet bakeries. But only once in a while when we are having “mys” / “kos” / “hygge” (cosy moment). So I will of course share those recipes with you as well.
I will soon come back with a lot of Scandinavian food inspiration!
