Bored of banana bread? We hear ya. While a lot of the world is on lockdown, we’ve been foraging around inside our cupboards for half-empty bags of flour and pots of baking powder, attempting to magic-up lockdown treats.
But if so far your baking hasn’t hit the spot, it might be time to call in a professional. Virtually, of course.
Airbnb have just taken a bunch of its ‘experiences’ online. Usually these are activities travellers do to meet locals and get stuck into the culture of the place they’re visiting. But in these difficult, travel-free times the experiences have gone online, which means, as well as other things, you can now bake Swedish buns with a pro baker from your very own kitchen.
She’ll also chat about the concept of Swedish Fika. Think it’s just a coffee and cake break? ‘It's so much more than that,’ says Lhea. ‘Fika is a state of mind, an important part of Swedish culture that values making time each day to savour a cup of coffee and time with loved ones.’
If there’s ever been a good time to go full Fika, it’s now.
