Fika. I love trying to explain what fika is to my American friends.  I never seem to convey the experience accurately. Thankfully, Fabian Schmid has started a 6 part documentary on the Swedish art of fika.

Here is the first episode, covering the ritual of fika and what it is, and why it is so important.

What has your experience been with the Swedish fika?
