Want to fika in person? There are some Fika: The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break events during the month of May, so if you are in New York, Seattle or Portland, listen up and get your calendars out.
Johanna and I are both together in New York for a week, so come drink coffee and get your book signed by both of us!

The lovely people at Portland Culinary Alliance and Broder are teaming up for a night of Swedish food. There will be aquavit cocktails by the lovely Jacob Grier, specialty coffees from Scandinavian roasters thanks to the team at Sprudge and I’m going to show everyone how to make kanelbullar. Note that your ticket price includes dinner, a cocktail and a book!
Come June we hope to have more things to announce as well, but for now, Johanna will be doing an event at Fika London (one of my favorite places!) on June 3, from 5 to 7pm. More details to come.
