Episode 07: Smörgåstårta

What happens when a group of Canadians attempt to create their own version of a cherished Swedish dish? Well, there’s some swearing (beeped out), some laughing (okay, a lot of laughing) and a lesson or two about sharp knives and calories.

On this episode of Canada versus Sweden we embrace cultural culinary differences and explore the phenomenon known as Smörgåstårta. Listen in as the Swedish sandwich cake gets a Canadian makeover.
