I had a small butter incident in The Dining Room at the Spritmuseum Stockholm. When they tried to clear the plate with a small smear of butter remaining, my hand shot out and my finger was in my mouth quick as a wink. Just writing this, I can feel and taste it on my tongue.
Take a ferry to Djurgarden to visit some of the Museums and include lunch or dinner at the Spritmuseum.
Lunch on a beautiful, late summer afternoon made for a perfect day combined with visits to The Vasa and Abba museums.
The restaurant focuses on local, organic ingredients with a focus on vegetables.
Starting with fresh warm brown bread and hand churned butter. Yes, thank you, we would like more.
A starter of salted pike and cucumber in elder-flower vinegar, tomato and fig leaf was a bright start.
Fermented corn soup with yeast and nasturtium was a pleasant surprise. There was a depth of flavor you wouldn’t expect from corn soup.
Grilled beets and chanterelles with onions in a parsley puree was another hit. The beets sweet contrasted wonderfully with the earthy chanterelles and the onions added a touch of sharpness.
We also got to try Himmelsraften a pressed hard, unpasteurized cow cheese named for a mountain in northern Sweden. Lovely with some honeycomb on the side.
Buckwheat pancakes (like not pancake I’ve ever seen) with blueberries and cream left us with a sweet ending.
