I´m an expert in baking and cooking typical Swedish cakes, dessert and food. I´m educated in nutrition and since I was 20 years I have been organizing food events with typical Swedish savory and sweet dishes. As a native Swede I´m also well versed in Swedish culture and traditions. I would love to introduce you to the concept of Swedish Fika- a cultural tradition and a must to experience when you visit Sweden to get to know the heart of all Swedes. Fika is often translated as a "coffee and cake break", but really it is much more than that. Fika is a concept, a state of mind, an attitude and an important part of Swedish culture. Many Swedes consider it essential to make time for fika every day. It means making time for friends and colleagues to share a cup of coffee, enjoy sweets and, most importantly, spend some quality time together.

It was a perfect experience, I liked it very much! Lhéa is full of energy, experience, knowledge and fun to make this event unforgettable. She gave me the perfect insights to Swedish living and way of life, mixed with excellent knowledge about baking and the perfect ingredients for it. It was a joyful afternoon with lots of fun and the sugar-task of Sweden: the Fika! Highly recommended!!! Lhéa was also able to meet my special needs, as I was asking for gluten-free options, which was of course doable for her as well. Lhéa is such a nice and warm welcoming person, it was a pleasure to spend the afternoon with her and learn about Sweden and the Swedish!

Lhea makes something really unique - it's an invitation to her home. I really appreciate this opportunity and would recommend it. It's like a coffee break with friends which you didn't know you have: it's a bit tricky to tune yourself at the beginning, but then it goes well.

Lovely Fika (coffee and cake) with Lhea and her family in their house. This was a welcoming, relaxed experience that taught us a lot about Swedish culture. The bakes were all delicious and there were so many to choose from! Lhea made a really interesting range of different cakes, pies, and rolls. We all took some with us. Conversation was enjoyable and very friendly. This was a great way to learn more about Swedish culture and family life.

Sweden = Fika for me. I traveled all the way from India, to experience Fika. As I walked from Huddinge Station towards Lhea's home, I was wondering what it would be like!! But as soon as I reached the neighborhood, it felt great. Such a warm and friendly atmosphere. The entire neighborhood was inviting, and Lhea's home was very comforting She has great taste and she has done it up very very beautifully. Immediately, I felt at home. She had made a variety of cakes and sweets, and it all tasted VERY PROFESSIONAL. She is very talented indeed. I loved every bite that I took! Lhea seemed like a long lost friend - so hospitable, so warm, and loving. Not only did I experience a beautiful Fika, but I also made a friend for life. Thank you Lhea. You made my day! God bless.

This was an incredible experience! Lhea welcomed me into her beautiful home and shared Swedish traditions with such warmth. I booked a private baking session and we made the most delicious traditional cinnamon rolls (kanelbulle) and cardamom rolls. She was extremely thoughtful and accommodating and took special care to show me how to do things right. She really went the extra mile. I would highly recommend this experience!

Very nice! Lhea prepared several swedish pastries for a swedish Fika - it was a dream. I really enjoyed the day, and the pastries were fantastic especially the apple pie and the cinnamon rolls. Lhea and her husband welcomed us very friendly! Definitely Highly recommended!
