Midsummer (midsommar in Swedish, juhannus in Finnish, midsommer in Danish, midtsommer in Norwegian and miðsumar in Icelandic) is a very much anticipated celebration in Nordic countries. It is celebrated at the weekend closest to the summer solstice with a combination of bonfires, songs, games and good food with family and friends often in a cottage in the countryside or by a lake.

 

Our midsommar menu has a selection of the items that would be included in the celebratory meal; Västerbotten cheese paj, potato salad, home pickled cucumbers, smoked salmon and prawn skagen. To finish, a slice of Brita cake.

 

The Västerbotten cheese paj can be ordered with either a pastry or potato case for anybody preferring a gluten free option. The paj (pie) slice can also be ordered with a porcini filling as an alternative to cheese.

 

The potato salad comes dressed in a Finnish mustard dressing and the king prawns are tossed in a mayo/sour cream dressing finished with a shake of tabasco and a scattering or shallots and dill. The prawns and smoked salmon will be sourced from our favourite fishmongers, Tarbetts in Chapel Allerton.

 

All of the Nordic countries have a version of a light vanilla sponge cake, layered with cream and berries. They take centre stage in birthday parties and celebrations across the summer months. The Brita cake is a Finnish take on this delectable confection. The sponges are baked with a layer of meringue on top to give an extra crunchy, gooey decadence before being slathered with vanilla infused whipped cream, strawberries, blueberries and flaked almonds.

 

We can't provide the bonfire or the lakes but, if you order our mini midsummer smörgåsbord by midnight on  Wednesday 19th June, you will have a solstice supper to conjure up the midnight sun on Saturday 22nd June
