Snacking cakes, cookies, aromatic breads—surround yourself with these and other Nordic sweets as you envelop your senses in the spectacular tastes, smells, and traditions of Sweden’s Midsommar.

Submerge yourself in the traditions of Sweden. Food holds such significance in many cultures. It symbolizes community, bounty, gratefulness, sacrifice, love, and so much more. Better than any basic Swedish cookbook, Miette Sweden brings to life the significance of Swedish baking—from traditional food and bread recipes to cake baking and bread making to coming together and sharing the bread and other dishes in Midsommar celebration. 

The spread of Sweden—foods and traditions with a twist. Midsommar has been celebrated for centuries in Sweden. Foods and classic recipes have circulated for just as long. When Meg Ray moved to Sweden for the summer, she noticed a demand for these cherished recipes and created Miette Sweden, which offers recipes, stories, Swedish staples, and more—with a miette twist. 

Inside this unique Swedish cookbook, you’ll find:

  • Step-by-step cookie, bread, and cake recipes classic to Midsommar in Sweden—Foods like chocolate mess cake and granola
  • Genius recipes that elevate beloved classics, like cardamom buns, ice-cream cakes, breads, and struesels
  • Tips, tricks, and recipes for Swedish bread baking—tools and gadgets not needed


If you liked Smörgåsbord, Ottolenghi Flavor or the Nordic Cookbook, you’ll love Miette Sweden.


About the Author

Meg Ray is a self-taught baker, the best-selling author of Miette, and the chef and owner of San Francisco's most charming pastry shop by the same name. Miette has impeccable cakes that are traditionally American & birthday-party perfect. A modern interpretation and the finest, unrefined ingredients available have made Miette one of the top ten pastry shops in the world, according to Conde Nast.

Several years ago, Meg’s life changed when she was invited to the Swedish island of Rodlogo, an island with no running water or electricity. While there, she fell in love with the people, traditions, foods, and a small cafe, which specialized in breads and sandwiches. Every year she returns to Rodlogo to work at that small cafe, absorbing classic recipes, methodologies, and traditions of the area. Meg spends most of her time in California, except for her summers, which are dedicated to her favorite bakeshop in Sweden.
