A much loved summer tradition. In the early 1990’s the crayfish season in Sweden was greatly reduced to a few months of the year, starting from the 1st August, due to over fishing. As their delicacy was so greatly missed through the down season, the Swedes threw lavish summer crayfish parties to mark the start of the season, and the return to their tables.
Nowadays crayfish is imported throughout the year, yet Swedes still maintain their August tradition of these indulgent crayfish parties. I mean…why not? It turns out that these parties are not just unique to Sweden. Many of our customers are ordering crayfish for their British summer parties to add a Swedish twist.
