Yesterday was the Fat Tuesday or ‘fettisdag’ in Swedish. It was the day when people eat semla, a Swedish traditional cuisine. 

Adrian and I also ate semla yesterday. As we live in Sweden we want to embrace Swedish culture in our life.

I remember eating semla for the first time at Bergnäskyrkan last year. I had a Swedish training at the church in addition to my Swedish class at Swedish for Immigrants (SFI). The training includes fika or afternoon tea. That day they served semla and they told me about the food tradition. It is quite amazing to find that Swedish has many traditions.

Semla is a nice cuisine made of bread with almond paste and topped with whipped cream. It’s sweet.
