On the 4th of march is Fat Tuesday (called ”Fettisdagen” in Swedish) we eat the pastry Semla. People will go crazy to eat this special bun on its own day. There are a lot of reviews in the Swedish newspapers which bakery that makes the most tasty Semla!
We will also join the celebration, but from Chengdu, we found a Swedish Cafe here that serves Swedish food and pastries. Actually, we are really looking forward for tomorrow and will even Skype our families during that special time:)
Take the opportunity and treat yourself and with a Semla! During Fat Tuesday you can find the Semla in most supermarkets and bakery shops.
