Abbamania_A3 pstr FINAL

ABBA MANIA is the number one tribute show to the world’s number one pop group – ABBA.  ABBA MANIA is a spectacular musical event recreating on stage the last ever live concert by the Swedish disco sensation ABBA in 1979.

ABBA MANIA brings to life the flamboyance of the 70s era – with vibrant costumes, extravagant lighting and all the endearing memories of the band that took over the disco world.

The show has been touring the world since 1999 – from Australia to Hong Kong to Russia, including a sell-out season in London’s West End in 2002.  Now ABBA MANIA makes its long-awaited return to the heart of the West End for one unforgettable night only.

ABBA fans old and new can enjoy such dance-inducing hits as Mamma Mia, Voulez Vous, Dancing Queen, Waterloo, The Winner Takes It All, and many more.

So dig out those platforms, dust off those flares and thank ABBA for the music.

We've got 3 pairs of tickets to give away for the show at the London Palladium on the 16th December.

To be in with a chance to win, answer this question:

Which of these is not an ABBA song?

a)    Dum Dum Diddle

b)    Waterloo

c)    The Final Countdown

Recipe: Swedish Cinnamon Buns 'Kanelbullar'

Kanel_bullar-1

There are as many recipes for cinnamon buns as there are people who bake them. 

This is a great recipe to start from because it is simple and it works. It doesn't faff around with gimmicks or fancy proving; it is simply a good base and you will, if you follow the recipe, end up with a few baskets full of lovely 'kanelbullar'.

Friday 4th October is The Day of the Cinnamon Bun in Sweden. A perfect day to get your baking mode on and show the office what you're made of - or simply treat your family to a good spot of homebaking that will also make your house smell like a Swedish country cottage as you bake.

Download the recipe here http://www.scandikitchen.co.uk/menus/1308_cinnamonbuns.pdf 

A few points to note:

Ground cardamom is essential.  Get hold of it is speciality Asian stores our at our place.  If you can only get pods, you'll need to empty the pods and really grind the seeds well before you use it.

Fresh yeast: Try to get hold of fresh yeast. We do stock it, but if you live in a place without a ScandiKitchen, try going to a local bakery and ask them nicely. Some of the big superstores have instore bakeries. Also, any Italian deli that make their own pizza dough is a good bet to try. 

Failing all of the above, use the active dry yeast - follow instructions on the packet as to how much to use to equal 50g fresh yeast.

Flour - we always use Swedish Vetemjöl flour for our breads, but if you need to buy a UK flour, use a bread flour.

Do some shopping ingredients right here - we deliver UK wide next weekday. 

We'd LOVE to hear from anyone who have used this recipe - and we'd love to see photographs so feel free to send us snaps of your creations by email to iloveherring@scandikitchen.co.uk 

Love,

The Kitchen Team
