I came to England from Sweden as an exchange student at The University of Sussex. The 6 months turned into nearly 30 years, when I met Ian, my husband, who now works at Peter’s Yard. Food has taken us many places but I always return to family traditions for parties when I serve Gentleman’s Delight (Gubbröra) as a canape or as a dish on my smörgåsbord. Just the name is a talking point!

To serve 4 as a starter, 8-10 as canapés


  • 3-4 hard boiled eggs
  • 1 red onion
  • 1.5 tbsp butter
  • 125 g anchovies
  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley
  1. Finely chop eggs, anchovies and onions.
  2. Melt butter and fry onions until golden brown.
  3. Add anchovies, fry gently for a couple of minutes.
  4. Gently stir in eggs and heat through. The
    ingredients must not be mashed!
  5. Sprinkle parsley over.
  6. Serve warm with crispbread.
