October Newsletter

Autumn is finally here in Hong Kong and it’s nice with the much drier and cooler mornings and evenings. Great weather to relax in especially after a long week at work with family and friends for a Cosy Friday, where you can simply stay in and cook up something easy, fun and comforting. And Tex-Mex is certainly one of them!

We love having Tex-Mex, so much so we decided to have a party with our team recently. Not only that it’s such a quick and easy meal to prepare but it’s also so much fun when you can mix and match with whatever toppings you like depending on your mood and taste buds. Definitely a crowd pleaser especially when you can enjoy it over a few shots of tequila, too!

Why not treat yourself to a nice Cosy Friday sometime and enjoy it with your loved ones?

Product of the month

There truly isn’t a better time to enjoy something nice and comforting in this cooler weather. And cheese is definitely on top of the list.

Known for being one of the oldest cheese in Sweden, Västerbottensost is well-loved amongst Swedish professional chefs and households. It was first produced in 1872 in Burträsk and has a unique taste that is characterised by salty, fruity and sour flavours, perfect to be enjoyed as it is, served on a cheese platter with wine, on tacos, adding to salads and even cooked in pies.

Västerbottensost was appointed as a Royal Purveyor almost 30 years ago, and continues to uphold its good reputation of Swedish quality produce.

Västerbottensost is aged at least 14 months, available in –

  • Whole wheel 18 Kg
  • Mittbitt (heart) 1Kg
  • Shredded 150g
  • Sliced 120g, 500g

It also comes in an exclusively limited edition of aged at least 24 months, contact us for more details!

Did you know? Västerbottensost has been served at many royal celebrations and Nobel banquets since 1990!

October has been a busy month for us and here are the highlights of the events we had taken part in –

17-19 Oct – 24th Macao International Trade & Investment Fair

It was our first time exhibiting at the MIF and had received much praises for the variety we had brought over to Macao.

We featured some of Nordic’s best, including Swedish cheese Västerbottensost and Falbydens, fresh edible flowers from Mimi Kotipelto Garden, Taiga Chocolate that comes with a Nordic twist and Dafgårds Swedish meatballs for making quick and healthy meals at home.

18 Oct – 17 Nov World Cultures Festival

We provided catering service at the Opening event to “The Nordics” with Rye House at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, where a wonderful range of quality Nordic drinks and finger food were served, including Scandinavian devilled eggs, smoked reindeer carpaccio and Karelian pastries.

The highlight of the evening saw impressed guests sampling our signature Swedish Sandwich Cake, made with freshly air-flown Swedish ingredients, such as smoked salmon, shrimps and caviar. Read more >
