I've just learned that I'll be hosting a potential in-law from Sweden this Christmas and I would like to incorporate a Swedish dish in the celebration. I would like to incorporate the dish into Christmas dinner. I'll be making a standing rib roast and a fairly American menu but I don't mind adding something incongruous. Still something served before the meal would be ideal because I also serve a couple of Korean dishes then and we can make it a sort of multicultural nosh session.
Any ideas would be helpful. I'm a skilled resourceful cook and a mediocre disinterested baker!
