With only three IKEA restaurants in Hong Kong, they are basically the hottest and Swedish cuisine places in town. They also happen to sell everything they cook you in the shop, but do you know how to cook it the Swedish way? IKEA knows, IKEA’s easy recipe series is as easy as printed on the papers, it also encourages you to put more creativity in the kitchen. Don’t worry, the paper is safe to use and the ink is safe!
Like their famous step-by-step assemble-by-yourself furniture, their cooking guidebook works in a similar way. Like a drafting pad, you can simply tear out the recipe you want from the booklet and start exploring in your kitchen.
Maintaining its minimalistic aesthetic, the cooking guide is literally a sheet of cookable parchment paper that is printed with the ingredients you need in the correct size to show the portion you need, with the detailed instruction written above. It is so easy to follow and precise that it would make a great family day activity with your kids.
Moreover, if you’re already a fan of IKEA’s aesthetic, you will love using their easy recipes because everything is so symmetrical and organised when you lay all the ingredients needed out. They look more like a creative modern art piece than something you’re about to cook in minutes.
As you can see, it is really pleasing to just follow the instruction to cook the delicious Swedish meals. You can of course add a little twist to your course and exercise your right as the chef of your own kitchen. As long as you stick to IKEA’s easy recipe mostly, you can’t go too wrong.
Sadly, the Easy Recipe Series cookbook is not available in Hong Kong yet. But since it was so popular in Canada where it first went on sale, hopefully, IKEA will translate them into Chinese and give us Hongkongers the chance to cook our own Swedish food. Still aching for IKEA food? Either go to the restaurants or follow these online recipes for now.
