Swedish Spread Kosher Style
Posted: June 4, 2012 By: Leah Jaffee

Think smorgasbord; not the giant spreads proceeding some Jewish weddings laden with potstickers and carving stations. This is Seattle and we have real Swedes here. While they combat assimilation and gentrification like the rest of us, a smorgasbord at The Swedish Club better look semi-authentic. Never mind that the caterer is a Jewish convert of mixed ethnicity cooking kosher. Think smorgasbord without pork and without meat and dairy cooked together. Okay, think Jewish kosher with a nod to Sweden; it's as close as I can get.
