NEW POTATOES, ARRIVALS and ANNUAL CLOSURE OF WEBSHOP

Good morning dear friends,

we are approaching the midway of this year which means Midsummer.
Scandinavians have been celebrating Midsummer since the Iron Age during which time the Viking Age took place. The holiday, which has pagan roots, was used as a time to pray for abundant harvest. It was also celebrated fertility, light, and nature. Midsummer marks the “middle” of summer, the summer solstice, the longest day of the year between sunrise and sunset.

Nordic Midsummer is a big deal. It is celebrated throughout the country, with many people leaving the cities and instead going to more pastoral areas to party in nature. The Midsummer’s Eve is typically a large event with many people together. The most important part of the Nordic Midsummer meal is the dinner on Midsummer’s Eve, which is long and full of traditional food and drink. Every table will have herring, boiled potatoes, and lots of aquavit.

As always you have the possibility to celebrate the Nordic way even when not being in the North. We at Nordic Temptations have all you need!

NEW POTATOES

This year’s first new potatoes have now arrived! They are a corner stones in the Nordic cuisine in the summer time and considered as a great delicacy.

A light and quick to make Nordic summer menu consists of new potatoes, dill, herring and smoked fish. Accompany with a schnapps of akvavit if you dare.
