When it comes to simple pleasures, a cup of coffee and a sweet treat can't be beat. The Swedes embrace this pleasure with their daily ritual of fika, or coffee break, where the notion of slowing down and taking a moment to relax and sip a cup of coffee is essential to their culture, their daily rhythm-and quite likely their happiness. Learn more about this tradition and how to achieve the skill of simplicity, Swedish style, with tips and recipes in the Little Book of Fika.

 Fika is more than just a coffee break, though. It is a Swedish tradition - a time to relax and socialize with friends and family. It is a way to slow down and appreciate the simple things in life.

In The Little Book of Fika, Lynda Balslev shares the history and culture of fika, as well as tips for creating your own fika moments at home. She also includes a variety of recipes for classic Swedish fika treats, such as:

  • Kanelbullar (cinnamon buns)
  • Kardemummabullar (cardamom buns)
  • Chokladbollar (chocolate balls)
  • Pepparkakor (gingerbread cookies)
  • Semlor (cream puffs)
