Our Lady of the… Waffle?
It would appear a play on words is actually the origin of this food-themed day. Learn more here, and then find a good recipe (like here for North American measurements or here for European measurements) to make your own!
Shop and help!
Lund’s Japanese exchange students are continuing their efforts to raise money and awareness for the tragic events which occured in Japan this spring. This Saturday, they will be present at the Södra Esplanaden flea market (near Parentesen) to sell unique sweets and goods.

The students will be selling hoso-maki, a sort of Japanese Sushi, some Japanese/Swedish sweets and second-hand items as well. You can also find A4 size (or bigger) pieces of beautiful Kimono textures, lovely Japanese cultural goods. Directly and authentically from Japan!
All the money from the charity market will go to the Japanese Red Cross to help victims of the earthquake and tunami.
You can find more information on Facebook here.
(Thanks to Mark Wong for sharing the info!)
Special holiday Friday!
We at The Dynamo like food – so we should enjoy March 25! 😉
There’s a good quick explanation in English here – get your whipping cream and jam out, Spring is here! 😀
Have your buns and eat them too!
This year “Fat Tuesday” falls on the same day as Women’s Day, today March 8. Some events in town are combining both traditions – why choose when you can celebrate both?
You can read a great history and description of Fastlagen, the stuff-yourself period preceding the privations of Lent in the old Swedish Catholic traditions, in this month’s issue of The Dynamo. There’s recipes, too!
