Festive foods for a traditional Christmas season.

Yuletide is a time of delicious smells wafting through the halls: onions sizzling on the stove, a wood fire gently smoldering in the grate, and fresh-baked gingerbread ready to hang on the tree. It’s a time of tradition and recipes handed down from one year to the next. The Swedish Christmas Table is a festive homage to the international history of the month of snow and mulled wine, advent calendars, and gathering family. Set your table with such seasonal delicacies as:

  • Mulled wine, eggnog, and seasonal cocktails
  • Roasted nuts
  • Fudge, nougat, and marzipan
  • Christmas ham
  • Vegetable pie with roasted walnuts
  • Frosted fruit
  • And so much more to delight and impress!

  • Discover new holiday favorites and update old traditions. Featuring vibrant and retro holiday collages, The Swedish Christmas Table is a Christmas cookbook to inspire, cherish, and hold on to for years to come.
