New Nordic Flavors with King Arthur Flour


Have you heard of the food trend of "New Nordic"? Just like it sounds, it is a fusion of modern cooking tastes and techniques with traditional Scandinavian cuisine and flavors. The trend has taken root here in the Twin Cities, Minnesota; of course, a hub for Scandinavians. For some reason, though, until recently, the influence of Nordic culture was completely missing from the food. Enter The Bachelor Farmer, and FIKA at the American-Swedish Institute, along with a host of smaller purveyors of these inventive flavors.

I'm Scandinavian--mostly Swedish with a hint of Norwegian--so I love a lot of things about Scandinavian baking. I'm not the most keen on their reliance on fish in their savory cuisine, but anise, ginger, orange, cardamom, and almond? Swoon.

I have a few delicious recipes coming for you. You can see the rundown of ingredients here.

And obviously, knowing me, I had to create a cute Swedish-inspired outfit for baking up these goodies. Here are my finds:

Swedish Kitchen Outfit
Swedish potholders//white dress//Swedish apron//Merimekko-inspired dishcloths//Swedish clogs

So pull out your King Arthur Flour catalogue (I know you have one), call them up in Vermont and order some yummy ingredients, tie on that floral apron, slip into your Swedish clogs, and let's bake
NEW NORDIC-Style this week!

They are so comfy, too! I don't have this exact style, but I have some from this brand--love them. I think they'd be GREAT for you, Claire--maybe in red? :-)
