Clarification re: Big News from Little Scarlet!

Apparently Tuesday’s disclosure wasn’t as clear as I’d hoped it would be (thanks to a lack of html savvy...), but there is exciting news to share.

This month, Little Scarlet will be featured in Foodbuzz’s “24, 24, 24”!! Each month, Foodbuzz accepts proposals from its Featured Publishers for the “24 meals, 24 hours, 24 blogs” program, where Foodbuzz ultimately selects 24 entries for inclusion. These 24 meals have to be prepared on the same day (24 hours), and coverage must then be posted on all 24 blogs.

So what will Little Scarlet be blogging about on January 24? A Swedish-themed dinner party happening this Saturday, in honor of A Little Night Music’s first Broadway revival!

Little Scarlet’s “24, 24, 24” event is the ultimate New York “dinner and a show”. Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music is a light-hearted tale of mismatched lovers set in turn-of-the-century Sweden during Midsummer’s Eve, and Little Scarlet’s Swedish smörgåsbord on Saturday night will be the perfect foreplay to our attendance of Sunday’s matinee performance.

In much of the world right now, these cold, dark winter months make it easy for many home cooks to get sucked into tired routines, so why not draw inspiration from a country that produces fine food even during the “Polar Nights”? This winter equivalent of the “Midnight Sun” shrouds Sweden in darkness for many weeks of the year, but Sweden has much more to offer than IKEA’s Swedish meatballs. Make sure to come back this Sunday, January 24 to read how Little Scarlet’s traditional Swedish smörgåsbord turns out!

I will be posting recipes of all food prepared during Little Scarlet’s “24, 24, 24” event, so that you can recreate this fabulous spread on your own. And for those lucky readers in New York City (or the tri-state area), I hope you’re able to create your own New York-Swedish “dinner and a show”!

  1. Fabulous idea! Really too much!! I grew up on this musical and have waited oh so patiently (since the '70s) for a revival! Can't wait to see how your dinner turns out - I don't know if I'll be able to replicate it, but I can sing every song from "A Little Night Music" and await with 'perpetual anticipation' your next post!
