Preparing herring in mustard sauce. The Rich Tradition: Sweden

Elisabeth Luard travels further north to Sweden, where she finds out about the lives of those living in the forests and on small holdings before finding out about those famous elements of Nordic cuisine, the different ways of using fish and the famous smörgåsbord.

Elisabeth Luard spends time with a forester couple, sharing the wild produce of the woods and moors. She then visits a young family who have gone back to the "good life" before turning to the sea, to fishing, to smoking fish, making gravad lax and marinated herrings. A fully loaded smörgåsbord table leads to the 70th birthday celebrations of a friend.
