I just can’t wait to visit Sweden in May. Sunny cobbled streets, a chill Nordic vibe, endless lakes and rivers to swim in – it’s my idea of heaven. And then there’s the food. I think Scandinavian nosh might be my favourite of all, so I was excited to see the beautiful city of Malmö celebrating its reputation as a hotspot for the gastronomically inclined. In the first interview honouring the city’s buzzing food scene, we meet the chefs behind Saltimporten Canteen, often deemed to serve the best lunch in Sweden. One look at their super-simple, beautifully prepared menu and I’m convinced.

Once you’ve had your fill of Saltimporten’s famous ‘kalops’ (traditional Swedish stew) the whole city is your oyster. Malmö definitely boasts a youthful buzz, and the multicultural locals hang out in its beautiful parks or in the independent coffee joints which seem to grace every street corner. The charming main square and the Lilla Torg area are full of old-fashioned, chocolate-box pretty houses, and when you get tired of cobble-hopping there’s even a gorgeous sandy beach, Ribersborg, to chill out on. Malmo is only a stone’s throw from Copenhagen in Denmark, too, so you can hop across the bridge and explore to Scandi gems in one weekend. This might be the perfect short-haul destination for travelling foodies.  Skål, as the Swedish would say!

    I love Swedish food! If you have not had reindeer with chanterelle mushroom sauce, potatoes and lingon jam/berries yet, then you need to try – so good.
