This week on Eat Your Words, host Cathy Erway is learning the true meaning of fika with Anna Brones and Johanna Kindvall, authors of “Fika: The Art of The Swedish Coffee Break, with Recipes for Pastries, Breads, and Other Treats.” With Sweden as one of the world’s top coffee consuming nations, Anna and Johanna explain that the twice-daily social coffee break known as fika is a cherished custom. Fika can be had alone or in groups, indoors or outdoors, while traveling or at home. A time to take a rest from work and chat with friends or colleagues over a cup and a sweet treat, fika reflects the Swedish ideal of slowing down to appreciate life’s small joys. In their uniquely illustrated cookbook, Anna and Johanna share with Cathy highlights from their classic recipes from their motherland and encourage this charming tradition regardless of where you might live.
