  1. Hmm. Have you been reading the FLDG lately or maybe Bon Appétit?

    Anyway, believe it or not, IKEA sells lignonberry preserves imported from Sweden and pretty good, too. And I'm sure I've seen them elsewhere around town. Maybe at one of the fancy food stores like Gourmet Laurier (on Laurier West) and Le Maître Boucher (on Monkland). Will keep an eye peeled the next time I'm out and report back if I find anything.

    Don't recall ever seeing Swedish cheese in Montreal. Fromagerie Hamel's country listing includes Denmark and Norway but not Sweden. You might try calling around. A good place to start would be the Atwater Market: Au Paradis du Fromage (514 933-7422), Fromagerie du 2ième (514 932-5532), Fromagerie du Marché Atwater (514 932-4653). Other possibilities: Yannick Fromagerie (514 279-9376) and La Vielle Europe (514 842-5773).

    You could also try contacting the Swedish consulate in Montreal or the Swedish Club of Montreal. You'll find their contact information on the website linked to below.

    Let us know what you turn up. Good luck!

      Yes, IKEA in Montreal (on Cavendish) has Lingonberry preserves AND they also have some Swedish cheeses. They are in the food store beyond the checkout lines. They also have "choklad munkar" and Lofbergs Lila kaffe.
