Swedish Food History through the Kitchen Garden
By Richard Tellström
The kitchen garden has served many functions in Sweden but mainly as an extra food source, first in the upper classes’ kitchen, later for everyone. Vegetables of different kind has been the base in Swedish food culture through history and a semi-vegetarian lifestyle, with mainly grain but also turnips and Swedes came out of necessity, and not choice. In this lecture we will meet different kitchen gardens in Sweden from medieval time until today, from the urban allotment gardens to the hipster, from the time when a potatoes field was a part of your salary to the kitchen garden today which mainly “produces” a hobby for leisure, is a place for the BBQ grill and an outdoor kitchen nowadays also a greenhouse. We will also hear about some kitchen garden trends in contemporary Sweden.
