Crayfish parties are traditional in August in Sweden. "The red gold" are a very longed for seafood and most people love the happy parties with snaps and beer. We had this years party last Saturday.
To avoid letting the strong alcohol get to you too quick we serve cheese pie. This time I made one mixed with chantarelles (wild mushrooms). Lovely and seasonal.
Sitting outside is a must (unless it is raining) and we were lucky, there was no wind and warm!
The desert pie made from handpicked blueberries and rasberries (wild, growing on the island and picked by myself, Charmaine and Yvette). Instead of sugar we used light brown moscovado sugar which gives it a taste of toffee! Yummy....the party went on until 3.00 AM....
