Swedish Only

5 03 2010

Like most countries, Sweden has it’s own words that’s impossible to translate to another language since these things that the words describe probably only can be found in Sweden. Here’s some examples:

The Folköl – a special kind of beer that has between 2.8 – 3.5% of alcohol and only exists in Sweden.

Smörgåsbord – A Swedish style buffet with a lot of different types of traditional Swedish food. A rough translation would be Sandwichtable.

Smörgåstårta – Translates into Sandwich cake, but it has such a large amount of filling that it more resembles a cake.

Husmanskost – Swedish cuisine, all food that comes from Sweden.

And we could go on the entire day just writing about different Swedish bakery and dishes!
