Tonight I experienced my first Julbord at the home of Catarina Lundgren Åström in Hobart, NY. This Swedish Christmas smörgåsbord consisted of several Herring dishes, Cured Salmon, Boiled Potatoes, Hard Boiled Eggs, Caviar, Ham, Meatballs, Ribs and a Baked Egg Omelet. There was also something called Jansson's Temptation and Santa's Porridge. It was the perfect scenario to taste classic dishes for the first time. Catarina has cooked, photographed and published two Swedish Home cooking books of her family recipes. It was a wonderful evening and we got to meet some of her lovely friends and family. God Jul!
