Gretas at Haymarket, Stockholm

I consider myself to be so very lucky to have grown up in Stockholm, Sweden. I love my home city and I love how it’s spread across 14 islands and connected by 57 bridges. The sea is all around you and it’s as beautiful in the summer as it is in the winter.

Stockholm has so many different cuisines on offer and wonderful restaurants and bars and cafes. We are if nothing else a coffee nation. I think we are like the second or third largest consumer of coffee, In The World. If you take into concideration that Sweden only has a population of about 9 million that’s pretty astonishing don’t you think?

Rocksalt Seafood Restaurant & Bar in Folkestone

Growing up in Sweden I wasn’t really that aware of what British cuisine was. But I remember my mum was always talking about the fish and chips she had in London served in the traditional way; in an old newspaper, apparently that’s how things were done back in the day. I mean Eeewwww. Just saying hahahahah She still loves fish and chips but it’s just not the same in Sweden. A bit like having Swedish meatballs in England hahahah looking at you Ikea!

Turns out British cuisine isn’t all about fish and chips. Being an island it has excellent sea food readily available all year round. There are excellent seafood restaurants dotted about each seaside town.
