Marinated Swedish herring can be found in deli sections of most Australian city markets. In a coincidental testament to that Swedish pop group, the 'Abba' brand is one of the oldest and biggest local producers, and expor ts a large variety -- look for 'sill' on the label. While herring is a constant delicacy on restaurant menus throughout Sweden's west coast, national consumption peaks during the Midsommar solstice festival in June. Platters of marinated herring are eaten with baby potatoes boiled with dill, together with sour cream, and finely chopped chives and red onion (the first potatoes of the summer are snapped up by restaurants at exhorbitant prices). SWEDISH SENTIMENTS • The Bohuslän Coast is a two-hour scenic drive from Gothenburg, Sweden's second largest city. Gothenburg is ser ved by major international airline carriers connecting from Australia. • When to go: Summer time, from June to August, is the brightest time of the year to visit the Bohuslän Coast.
