Recently I shot a video for the TODAY Cooking School on TODAY.com where I introduced to viewers what I consider comfort food. Since I grew up in Sweden, to me two comfort foods are Swedish Meatballs and Gravlax.
My grandmother’s Swedish Meatballs were the first dish I really learned how to make well and I love it so much that it’s on the menu at Red Rooster Harlem. We serve it alongside mashed potatoes and lingonberries for a truly traditional taste.
Gravlax is also one of my favorite Swedish dishes. We know it better as Lox, but it’s basically cured Salmon that we serve over pumpernickel bread, fennel, dill and mustard.
Check out my video below for more insight on Swedish comfort foods.
