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!
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.
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.
