Fettisdag (Fat Tuesday) Pop-up Cafe

March 5, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Fat Tuesday in Sweden means eating semlor. An almond filled cardamom bun with fresh whipped cream is sure to hit the spot. This Fat Tuesday the Swedish American Museum will host a pop-up cafe where you can try your very first semla or keep the tradition going. Maybe try something other than a Paczki this year.

Swedish King Adolf Frederick died in 1771 after eating 14 servings of semlor. So while indulgence is encouraged on fettisdagen (Fat Tuesday), it might be best to keep your semla intake to fewer than 10!
