Now it’s time to register for this fun and tasty tradition which marks the end of the summer… well in Sweden, that is.
The concept is easy: get together with a few friends, eat lots of crayfish and BBQ, drink beer and schnapps, then top it all off with some singing. Maybe you will be surprised to find the Viking awakening in you.
This year, we are at a new venue: The Whitby Marina. This beautiful waterfront location can be conveniently reached by GO Train or car (minutes from the 401).
For those of you eager to enjoy the unique ambiance of this Swedish tradition but have yet to develop a love of crayfish, we are also offering a delicious Canadian style BBQ.
We are starting with a “make your own” svenska mackor bricka- (sandwich tray), accompanied by a homemade Västerbottenpaj, ( Västerbotten cheese-pie ). This will put us in the right mood for the lawn games.
Crayfish in dill-marinade as well as BBQ Chicken, Beef Kebabs and Premium European Sausages.
Swedish Potato-salad, serve with fresh and crisp bread, butter, different cheeses, and garden green salad.
To drink at the kräftskiva, beer is most common. We also have “nubbe” ( schnapps ) wine and soft drinks. Something for everyone!
Till efterrätt, ( for dessert) there is the traditional MarängSwiss (vanilla ice cream, 4 types of berries, meringues mixed with freshly whipped cream and finished with a chocolate drizzle) Coffee and Tea.
We are also happy to introduce Magnus Hjerpe and his swinging trio, that will entertain us and bring a night of great music. Whether you like to sing along, or just sit back and enjoy, it’s a lot of fun all the same.
So let us bring together Swedish and Canadian culture for a joyous evening to remember. Lets go Candinavian!
