Traditionally, 7 cookies are served as part of the Fika ritual, made from the finest natural ingredients, married with a fresh cup of coffee, it’s the perfect time to indulge and revitalizing. In the 19th century the ingredients for cookies were expensive and it was a sign of wealth be able to offer your guest several varieties of cookies. A competitiveness between hostesses developed and the custom for serving 7 varieties derived.


  1. Love it! What a great idea and everything from Jan Hedh tastes heavenly! If anyone is up in Edinburgh they should try Peter’s Yard (www.petersyard.com) where Jan Hedh spreads the modern artisan baking culture of Sweden.

  2. Yes Peter's Yard is excellent, though I'm biased as it was started by our neighbours Sophie and Robin Dow.
