WHAT?

Highlighting the lesser known Swedish holidays and looking beyond the meatballs, smorgasbord and frog leaping around the midsummer pole at summer solstice, Swilipino presents - Fössta Tossdan i Mass!

Directly translated to ‘The first Thursday in March” but transcripted as a “Smålänning” (a person from Småland in southern Sweden) would pronounce it, it is basically an action of reclaiming some pride after being mocked by the entire nation for their unusual pronunciation and “farmerish” dialect (mostly in good spirit). A princess cake is a national treasure also called Marzipan cake but when Smålänningar  pronounce it they leave the Rs out leaving us with “Massipan tååta”. Due to the lack of Rs and cutting out letters they have claimed this day and dessert as their own “local national day” which they celebrate by eating said cake.

As a proud Smålänning Swilipino wants to share this piece of local history with the London community but off course in her own way as always with a mashed up version expanding what it meant growing up a mixed kid in Sweden and taking pride in her Filipino roots and heritage at the same time. Adding a few more courses to also celebrate Mothers day that coincidentally fall on around the same time here in the UK!
