Around the World in 12 Dishes - Explore Sweden!



Welcome to "Around The World in 12 Dishes"
We are excited to be taking a journey around the world, (loosely) following in Phileas Fogg's footsteps, by exploring 12 different countries and cooking 12 dishes - one for each country we visit.

The world is such a wonderfully diverse and colorful place.  I am so excited to get us a bit out of our comfort zone and explore some more of the world with the Lil Divas. What better way to really bring it all to life for them than through food, books and fun?!

  • Typical dishes: Köttbullar med potatismus (Meatballs with mashed potatoes), gravlax, pyttipanna (a kind of hash), chokladboll (chocolate balls) or Kanelbulle (cinnamon rolls) (Here is a link for more inspiration: Swedish cuisine).
  • Print your passport: Click here to download, comes with space for a photo of the child with the dish. Here is a little cover for it if you wish :)
  • Color a placemat: Once colored/painted or whatever other way you want to do this, you can laminate it or put it between clear contact paper to use it over and over. Great conversation piece for you and your kids. Click here to download it.

  12. Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that
    "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you have done a awesome job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for
    me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!
