The Swedish Way

March 22, 2000

I'm a longtime reader of The Times and have on many occasions pulled recipes out of your Food section. Last Wednesday you published a recipe with the headline "Swedish Treat" (March 15). Being that I'm Swedish and that I grew up in Sweden, I need to comment.

The recipe for Swedish Meatballs with the sauce was correct. The Red Cabbage is also correct. As a matter of fact, many of the individual recipes are correct, it's just that the combination is completely wrong. Dill is never used with any meat; it is exclusively used as a spice with seafood. Furthermore, no Swede would eat red cabbage and add lingonberry jam. To any Swede this very much "put together" combination would turn his or her stomach.
