Traditional Christmas buffet

Traditional Christmas Buffet

Served all days between November 30th and December 22nd, 2019.

Come and enjoy a Christmas food experience with us in the Artipelag restaurant’s beautiful archipelago setting with its breathtaking views over Baggensfjärden. Throughout December we light the open fire and serve traditional Christmas food with all the trimmings – plus a selection of desserts which look as sumptuously Christmassy as they taste.

Our goal is to embrace the best traditions of Christmas by pulling together the best Christmas taste experiences from the north of Sweden to the south and from the start of the last century up to today. You will find both classic dishes and an assortment from more modern times.

All our Christmas food is either made from scratch here at Artipelag or delivered by local producers on Värmdö and the surrounding area. We smoke our fish and meat in our own smokery, we pickle our herring ourselves and our Artipelag loaves are baked using barley malt from Värmdö brewery. Anything that we can’t find here on Värmdö, we bring in from elsewhere in Sweden or wider Scandinavia.

The brawn and butcher’s’ terrine are home-made, and the cheese is from a local dairy called Ostmakeriet. What we cannot find locally we procure from other parts of Sweden – the Christmas ham comes from farms in Dalsland. Our homemade wild boar sausage, flavoured with apple and thyme, originates from Södermanland and Östergötland. The “tjälknöl” (frozen and oven roasted meat) is elk from the north of Sweden and the chicken liver paté is made of Swedish farm chicken.

Our head chef Patrik Gullmarsvik leaves nothing to chance and serves up the highest quality down to the tiniest detail. Our sommelier Tim Good complements the range of tastes with carefully matched beers, wines, snaps and liqueurs.

The Christmas buffet kicks off with a warm cup of mulled wine served, of course, with some ginger bread.
