Best Swedish Christmas food & tables

What is Swedish Christmas food? Well it consists of dishes that are mainly easy to store since in the old days there were no refrigerators, everything had to be stored and last during the long winter. Some meat and fish dishes could be fresh and hunted in time for the Christmas dinner.


Traditional dishes are Herrings, Meatballs, Jansson’s temptation, Lutfisk and hot glögg (spiced mulled wine).
