You never really know what goes on behind closed doors, especially if that door leads to the kitchen.
And sometimes I can’t help wondering just what the average Swede really eats for supper. As a Brit living in Sweden I’ve mostly – but not always – enjoyed trying out Swedish food. I love food, and can think of nothing nicer than idling hours away leafing through a cookery book. But, despite that, and trying to be inventive, I always seem to end up cooking the same 10 dishes on some strange sort of rota system.
So you can imagine my surprise as I was busy preparing our Saturday night Tacos, when I discovered that I was far from alone in my choice of meal; it seems, in fact, that well over 840,000 other people in Sweden would also be tucking into Tacos over the weekend!
This is according to a recent survey that was featured in our local paper on Saturday. So, if you’ve ever wondered, here are Sweden’s Top 10 Weekend Meals for 2014:-
- Beef with chips, 12.1%
- Chicken, 11.1%
- Tacos, 8,8%
- Pork fillet with side dishes, 8,1%
- Pizza, 6.8%
- Fish with side dishes, 6,4%
- Salmon, 4,4%
- Casserole, 4,1%
- Steak/entrecote with side dishes, 2,7%
- Hamburgers, 2.4%
As I tend to cook at least 6 of these meals on a regular basis, I begin to wonder if I am more Swedish from a culinary perspective than I realized?
Note to Selfie: Time to dust off my Delia Smith and Nigella Lawson cookery books!
