This summer, the Beijing Chapter of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in China (SCCC) arranged their first Swedish cooking course at the Scandinavian style restaurant, Smushi House on July 19 2012. During the course, nearly 20 participants learned how to make the Swedish meatballs by themselves and enjoyed a wonderful dinner, served by Smushi House.
“We shall continue to arrange a series cooking course for our local members”, says Yvonne Chen, the General Manager of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in China.
“For example baking the Swedish Kanelbullar (Cinnamon Rolls), Pepparkakor (gingerbread), Toast skagen, or cooking the crayfish in the Swedish way. It would help the Chinese employees working in a Swedish company to learn more about the Swedish lifestyle and the Swedish culture, she added.
Through these events, which we call “This is Sweden”, we wish to brand Sweden and Swedish culture among the Chinese people. We believe this will also strengthen the Chinese staff’s loyalty to their Swedish employers,” says Yvonne enthusiastically.
