This year’s herring with elderberry, lemon, dill and OP Anderson Björk

Since 2007, well-qualified chef and restaurateur Fredrik Eriksson at Långbro Värdshus and Restaurang Nationalmuseum has created this year’s herring. Herring is served in the restaurant all summer long and the recipe is free for everyone to use. Herring this year flavored with elderberry, lemon, dill and OP Anderson Björk.

Fredrik Ericsson, who runs Långbro Värdshus and the Restaurang Nationalmuseum, is one of the most experienced chefs in the country. At a young age he won the Chef of the Year award and is today the head of the competition. Friedrich Ericson was also involved in the Bocuse d’Or, wrote several cookbooks and was gustatory in charge of royal weddings. For the past 15 years, he has been making this year’s herring, which is traditionally served on the national holiday.

Herring this year flavored with elderberry, lemon, dill and OP Andersson Björk. It is a spicy brandy produced in 2018 in connection with the opening of the Nationalmuseum. OP Anderson Björk builds on a classic spice with cumin, fennel and anise. In addition, there is also a taste of birch buds plucked in the winter, before they start to swell, and birch sap harvested on the edge of spring in Jamtland.

– When we design the Herring of the Year, it is always done through meticulous innovation that preserves tradition and pays tribute to local ingredients. Thus, the ingredients consist mainly of in-season Swedish crops from forests and gardens, says Fredrik Eriksson, chef and restaurateur at Långbro Värdshus and Restaurang Nationalmuseum. This year’s 2022 herring is a healthy, balanced pickle that’s perfect for summer lunch alongside OP Anderson Björk’s slightly chilled.

This year, herring is served at Långbro Värdshus from National Day until the end of summer and also during the Christmas table. Classic accessories consist of new potatoes, sour cream, crusty bread, Kvibille National Cheddar, and OP Anderson Björk.
