This week, I am writing to you from the west coast of Sweden. We have visited almost every summer for the past 16 years. For my wife, Sofie, it’s a way to reconnect with her motherland, and, for me, well, I still find novelty in the food, customs and oddities that make Sweden so unique .

Crayfish parties, grilled hot dogs, crisp bread with pickled herring and cream-laden strawberry cakes are all part of the experience here during the summer. In between all that, my short-order cook role for two little lake swimmers requires more simple fare, which is why I’m offering up three summer sandwiches this weekend.
