Something I noticed when I was in Sweden is that the Swedes like sauces on their foods.
Virtually everything I ate had some sort of accompanying sauces to go with it.
When I ate steak and mashed potatoes artfully arranged on a plank, there were several sauces to go with it.
Ok, so MAYBE it was mushroom sauce but I loved the name of the sauce.
The next morning, after eating SVAMP sauce with steak, I had breakfast and The Swede was kind enough to let me sample his favorite – a tube of pinkish caviar sauce which he squeezed like toothpaste ALL OVER HIS BREAKFAST.
I’d like to say “yum” but I believe my reaction to tasting it was to look for something that could replace the flavor in my mouth AS FAST AS POSSIBLE.
After tasting the caviar paste, I was obsessed with it however.
So when I came across THIS display of tubes of sauce in the grocery store, I had to stop and examine them.
The tubes had a millions different flavors – shrimp, caviar, salmon. . .even DEER!
I was amused.
Then I walked around the corner and found EVEN MORE TUBES!
And that’s when I realized that The Swedes really do love their sauces.
Hollandaise, béarnaise, crème anglaise, beurre blanc – the French have NOTHING on the Swedes!
