New recipes every month!

Traditions and moments together is something Sagaform values highly, which becomes very clear in the new venture Friday fika. A venture where Sagaform calls for more together-moments around the Friday fika. In cooperation with chef and baking profile Frida Bornholt we have created recipes based on the identity of Sagaform – Swedish, classic and with a twist.

Every month we will inspire you to gather around Fridayfika. Through new recipes, tips and interviews, we want to get more people to put fridayfika on Friday's agenda. Whether you are seen through a screen, out in nature, in the office or at the kitchen table.

Extend the experience through nice plating arrangements

Frida Bornholt, chef and finalist in "Hela Sverige Bakar" 2020, is the one who together with Sagaform will represent the concept. According to Frida, how you present your fridayfika is one of the most important part of baking, at least as important as how it tastes. This is a way to prolong the fika experience.

- For me, Fridayfika is a way to spread joy and inspire others to bake more, and give more. It really gives me a smile that lasts the whole day, Frida says.
