Last night about 18 of us all met to eat Christmas dinner in a little log cabin in the woods. It is the second year we have done this and I think we'll be doing the same again next year. We ate a traditional Swedish julbord (Christmas dinner) with everyone bringing a different dish . The food included ham, pickled herring, smoked salmon, deer heart (!!), hard boiled eggs with caviar, Janssons frestelse (potato and anchovy pie), spare ribs, boiled potatoes, mini sausages, pate etc. It was all lovely but so different from the English Christmas dinner of roast turkey and vegetables!! To add a bit of English tradition we brought mulled wine, mince pies and Yule log with us.

Great looking table. The food sounds wonderful but you got me with the "deer heart". How was it prepared and did you try it?

That sounds so cool! What a great experience. I love swedish-style dill potatoes.
