Conshohocken, PA (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
It’s the time of the year again for enjoying time with family and friends under the setting sun, amidst mild summer weather. IKEA, the Life Improvement Store, invites consumers to enjoy the IKEA Crayfish Party—a late summer smorgasbord that will be hosted in the restaurants at all IKEA stores on Friday, August 17. For only $9.99 per person or $2.49 for kids 12 and under, guests can enjoy a Swedish summer meal of crayfish, cheese pie, cucumber salad, and more.
Crayfish parties date back to the 1800s when lakes in Sweden were full of crayfish. In order to protect crayfish populations, the fishing season was limited to August and September, which is why—today—Swedish crayfish parties are still traditionally held in August. Crayfish parties are one of the most loved and celebrated Swedish festivals. On summer evenings, families and friends gather outdoors, wearing paper hats and bibs and singing merry songs. They eat red crayfish, bread, cheese, shrimps and various pies.
The IKEA Crayfish Party menu includes:
- Tossed green salad
- Cucumber salad
- Hardboiled eggs with mayo and shrimp
- Shell on prawns with cocktail sauce
- Najad Salmon w/horseradish or mustard sauce
- Cheese Pie
- Dinner Rolls
- Assorted Swedish cheeses
- Meatballs with lingonberries
- Mashed potatoes
- Boiled dill new potatoes
- Assorted Swedish desserts and cookies
- Coffee, tea, fountain beverage
