    What is Fika? What does it mean and where does it come from? Stina Almroth explains all this and much more in the award-winning book Fika: Made In Sweden. The beautiful book is written in English and is a great coffee-table book for anyone who wants to learn more about our Swedish cultural treasure, Fika.

    Fika is a world-famous Swedish tradition that is as deeply rooted in Swedes as it is fascinating to the rest of the world. Fika is, to the untrained eye, a cup of coffee and perhaps a pastry in the company of good friends or colleagues. But it's really much more than that.

    Personal and explanatory

    In Fika: Made In Sweden, Stina explains the background to this Swedish tradition. Both in general, and from a personal perspective as a fika enthusiast and passionate home baker. Apart from Stina's recipe for cinnamon buns, the book contains no other recipes, but focuses entirely on the concept of Fika and its importance for social life at home, at leisure and in the workplace in Sweden.

    Beautiful pictures

    The book is generously illustrated with beautiful pictures of baked goods and coffee traditions, taken by award-winning photographer Magnus Skoglöf. The pictures accompany Stina's narration and explanation very well and together they symbolise all that Fika stands for.

    Carefully selected design

    Graphic designer Cecilia Kusoffsky has been involved in developing the book's carefully selected design. Fika: Made in Sweden has an open spine that allows you to fold the book flat on the table. The blue thread on the spine matches the gold word FIKA on the front and represents the Swedish flag.

    Award-winning book

    The book Fika: Made In Sweden has been awarded two prestigious prizes.- Selected by the Swedish Meal Academy as the winner of the Swedish Meal Literature of the Year 2020 in the category Ceremonial Meals.- Swedish winner of the Gourmand Awards 2021, in the category "Coffee" where the book was selected as one of the four best in the world.

    About the author

    Stina Almroth, PhD in International Nutrition and Anthropology from Cornell University, USA, has a career of pioneering research on children's health. No matter where in the world Stina Almroth has lived, she has been a dedicated and much-loved home baker throughout her life. Friends and acquaintances she has met abroad have always appreciated her baked goods and coffee breaks.

    But the phenomenon of "Fika" is so much more than pastries and coffee. So Stina decided to explain and share this Swedish tradition with the rest of the world through the world of books. The result was Fika - Made in Sweden, an award-winning book about the Swedish cultural treasure, Fika.
