Summer the Scandi way

Cook and restaurateur Brontë Aurell’s new book ScandiKitchen Summer celebrates fresh, simple ingredients prepared beautifully – the very essence of lagom


The Swedish word lagom means not too much, not too little; the perfect balance with everything in moderation. As author and co-owner of ScandiKitchen in London, Brontë Aurell, says: ‘Understanding the concept of lagom is to appreciate that the spirit of our countries is based around ensuring that all we do is in balance. The stereotype is generally true: excess is limited in Scandinavia. We are practical in our approach to everything, including how we live and what we eat. Yes, we love cake, but we balance it out with fresh salads. If we enjoy a heavy lunch, we have a light dinner. Open sandwiches on fibre-rich rye bread means we don’t skimp on the mayo. Scandinavians do summer food well; it is wholesome, flavoursome, simple to make and beautiful to look at.’ Find some delicious inspiration in these pages.


The beauty of this tart is in the topping – it showcases everything I love about the Nordic summer: the berries, the sunshine and the abundance of fresh ingredients.
