Studentafton with Leif Mannerström

29 Sep

Michelin-starred chef comes to Lund

Working up an apetite yet? Photo © James Ho.

Tomorrow Thursday (September 30), you have a chance to bask in the glory of Leif Mannerström, Swedish chef extraordinaire!

The event starts at 7pm at the AF building and is free for AF (Nation) members. The talk will be in Swedish, but for the slim chance that there might be free food by a world-class cook, you might want to give it a shot?

You can find a bit more info here (Google translated, as usual).

And FYI, probably not a good idea idea to make jokes to this Swedish chef about that other Swedish chef

Language cafés

10 Sep

Meet, talk, eat!

Feel like spending some time with Swedish youth, helping them learn languages and enjoying home-baked goodies? Then Language Cafés are for you!

We’ll soon provide you with an insider’s look at how it all works, but as the first one is today at 1pm (in English – no need to be a native speaker!), you might want to check it out for yourself! 🙂

If you can’t make it today, you might be able to make it some other time?  The fall schedule is here: Schedule language cafés HT10. There’s a bit of extra information on the schedule as well.

The Cafés take place at Fågelskolan, in the north-western part of Lund, near Vildanden.

Hälsningsgille Autumn 2010

12 Aug

Free stuff and lots more

Mostly aimed at Swedish students, Hälsningsgille is a big fair where student and community organizations as well as businesses like banks and gyms all come out to woo as many students as possible to their cause.

It’s usually jam-packed with kiosks and people – arriving early is not a bad idea, expect line-ups (this is Sweden – get used to always expecting line-ups). You can get your fill of free pens, free passes, and it’s a great occasion to meet-and-greet with like-minded people and to get to know what’s out there. This fall, it’s happening as always in the ball room of the AF castle, on September 3rd.

Peeping through the keyhole

Due to their high sugar and fat content, yummy Swedish ‘semlor’ could sadly not be marked with the keyhole symbol.

Shopping for groceries at the end of a busy day at the university? Want to buy a takeaway or some ready-to-eat meal and still concerned about cutting down fat and salt intake?

How about going for some pasta with high fiber? Well, it sounds a plan! But how to spot one? Simple indeed. Look for the keyhole symbol! It gives you a quick scan for foodstuffs with less fat, sugar and salt but rich in dietary fiber.

Introduced in the year 1989 by the Swedish National Food Administration (SLV), the keyhole is now advanced to the state of a joint Nordic nutrition label in Sweden, Denmark and Norway. Thanks to the Keyhole system, picking up a healthier one from a plethora of foodstuffs in your favourite supermarket is no more an arduous task.
