Cinnamon Rolls, Swedish Style


A lot of people – including me – will be fasting today on Yom Kippur. It’s a day of reflection (man, I’m getting old) and repentence (Madeline, sorry I took the last shui mai at Triple Crown last month when you weren’t looking). But I realize only about 3% of the U.S. is fasting today, so for the rest of you, here’s a little video that will have you rushing out to your local bakery.  A few months ago, I was in Stockholm during midsummer, and rode my bike to Rosendals Trädgård, a bucolic series of gardens in the middle of an island in the middle of the city.  They happen to have a fabulous bakery there, and they let me come back in the kitchen to see how they make their incomparable cinnamon rolls. Chicago fans of a certain woman named Sather will note the absence of any kind of icing. Trust me, they didn’t need it.
