The Swedish BBQ

Source: "The Social Guidebook to Sweden"

The first time I was invited for a BBQ in Sweden

I marinaded overnight in Maple Syrup a pork tenderloin 

And brought a bottle of sparkling wine for everyone to enjoy

I was looking forward to having my new friends experience my Canadian receipe

And was curious to try some Swedish food

The BBQ did not go exactly as planned


Everyone did bring some food

But everyone ate their own food 

Only their own food

Swedish like to keep their independence


The Social Guidebook to Sweden explains how Swedes interact

And sets the basis for successful relationships in Sweden
