Swedish Fika – New York

Swedish Fika

Fika is an ingrained activity in Swedish culture. It has become a somewhat popular concept internationally as well. For those of you who are not familiar with Fika.

We had a breakfast meeting and Andrea being the wonderful hostess she is, prepared her homemade granola and yogurt for us to Fika once all the important decisions were made. And yes she makes her own yogurt! It was so so yummy I had to get the ingredients so I could share it with you guys!
