When winter comes Uddevalla is a wonderful place to be. The summer's activities are replaced by winter events. Uddevalla has a unique location with fjords that stretch inland. The waters of the archipelago and the splendour of nature are easily accessible.   Lots of fantastic outdoor activities are available. You can walk or fish along the coast, on Herrestadsfjäll and Bredfjäll. At Bjursjön there are some great trails for mountain biking. And why not take a kayak trip around the fjord while it is still ice free?   This magazine will give you tips on restaurants, cafes and events, and you will get to meet some of the wonderful people that live here.

”We have close control of the meat that we sell” Kebab skewers, prime rib burgers and other delicacies lie next to the tender meat cuts in the display chiller cabinet at Ljungskile Chark. This is a classic butcher's shop, like they used to look.

"We only sell locally reared meat of the ­highest quality. It feels good to be able to tell the customer where our products come from, from breeding to the final product. We have full control and the customers like that", say shop owners Sofia Magnusson and Henrik Svensson.   When Ljungskile Chark opened in the middle of June 2016 in a wonderful shop in Ljungskile town centre, it was a dream come true. Sofia and Henrik had started Ljungskile Slakteri a year earlier and they are passionate about producing and supplying really good meat products. "We wanted to open our own shop because we saw a demand in the market. More and more people are watching what they eat and want to know where their food comes from. There is enormous interest in our products and customers come from all around the area. We have had a dream start", say Sofia and Henrik. "We are very proud of our meat products. Everything we sell comes from local farms in Bohuslän and the vicinity. We have full control of the whole chain from the living livestock to the ready product and can tell customers which farm it comes from and how it has been farmed." CHERISHING GOOD ANIMAL WELFARE "There are no short-cuts to good meat. The quality does not just depend on where the animal comes from or how the meat has been hung. It also depends on whether the 4 Uddevalla&DU

animal and the meat have been treated with respect from rearing through to the end product." "We also spend a little extra time hanging our meat for three weeks. This means that the meat becomes really tender." HIGH SEASON FOR SLAUGHTERING We meet Sofia, Henrik, their three girls and 50 Gotland ewes at Backa Fårgård outside Ljungskile, during one of their busiest slaughtering periods. The day before had seen them deal with 117 lambs and today there were new tasks. In addition to their own meat production, they are also used by several breeders that have their own sales channels. Sofia and Henrik have worked within the slaughter business their whole lives, both as employees and in their own company. "It was pure chance that I started work at a slaughterhouse as a 19 year old and learnt how to handle the whole chain from ­slaughter to preparing choice cuts", says

Sofia who grew up in Vänersborg.   Henrik grew up on a farm and learnt how to handle both living and dead animals from an early age. "It is tough physical work being a butcher and the tempo is high. We mostly slaughter lamb but also deal with beef, pork, ostrich and game. Our busiest time is during the autumn and around Easter," says Henrik. LOTS OF PEOPLE WANT LAMB There are lots of local livestock farmers in the area so Sofia and Henrik don't need to look far for suppliers. The number of sheep farmers has increased significantly in the last few years and a lot of these are very good breeders. "Because people have begun to appreciate lamb cuts there is great demand. We thought that we would mostly be selling pork in the shop, but have found that lamb is most ­popular. Quite soon after we opened sales went from 50 to 300 lambs a week."

WANT TO WORK ON A SMALL SCALE Sofia and Henrik also have a well-established and successful collaboration with other farm shops and restaurants in the area. "We have chosen to sell our products to smaller players who think and work as we do. We do not use classic sales methods but prefer to spread knowledge of food by ­educating our customers. The interest is massive but we are still not looking at ­expanding. We are happy to keep it small scale and close to our customers." WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING TO DO ON A FREE SUNDAY DURING THE WINTER? "On a beautiful autumn day we like to take the children on a trip to the forest and grill some sausages, preferably our own, over a fire. We live very close to beautiful forests and sea. There are always new things to discover."

”We put a lot of time and love into preparing honest food” Award winning chef Fredric Andersson describes the concept that attracts 250-300 lunch guests to the Kärranäs restaurant each day as follows: "It is no good trying to fool people with food. We work with honest food and put a lot of time and love into it."

"We don't just want our lunch guests to feel full up, we want to awaken their taste memories. One could say that we serve gourmet food in a lunch style", says Fredric.   In the kitchen at the Kärranäs restaurant, all that counts are really good ingredients and careful handiwork. Everyone tastes each other's food and gives feedback. Guests of all ages and backgrounds and from the whole West coast visit us. "Everyday we talk about our customers ­actively choosing to come here and spend their hard earned money on a meal. We have to be on our toes to meet their expectations." SELECT LOCAL PRODUCE Only selecting seasonal produce of really high quality is another of Fredric's rules of thumb. For example, he never serves fresh 8 Uddevalla&DU

strawberries during the winter months. "I am glad that there are so many local ­suppliers around us. We try to use as much local produce as possible, but it is always quality that determines where we shop."   After a long and fantastic career in the ­restaurant world, Fredric and his family moved back to Uddevalla in 2014. Family, friends and the sea beckoned. And the wish for the kids to grow up in a small town. LONGED TO COME BACK HOME TO THE SEA "I moved away from Uddevalla when I was 17 and have had the good fortune to work at several well-known establishments around Europe with some really talented cooks. I have always had a strong drive to be a better cook. But it is also a really tough life that takes it out of you. It can be compared to an

elite athlete's training schedule to get better results."   Fredric has a long list of achievements to his name in the form of successful restaurant concepts, awards, jobs as a TV cook and cook book author. Even if he has learnt from all his experiences he would pick out his time as a cook in Denmark as the high point. "Denmark is way out in front and that is where I learned to think about food, how one combines flavours well. That knowledge is something I use a lot." UDDEVALLA'S RESTAURATEURS THINK AGAIN "Something that affected me a lot was ­writing the cookbook Matfrisk (Foodhealth), about food that can help prevent cancer. I wrote the book with two doctors based on research into what is actually healthy food.

Soup of roasted winter vegetables with smoked belly pork 4 portions 1 carrot, approx. 100 g 1 parsnip, approx. 100g 1 swede, approx. 100g 1 clove of garlic ½ l vegetable stock, not concentrated 1 dl crème fraiche 2 tbsp lemon juice 1 tbsp olive oil 100 g smoked pork belly 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley Sourdough bread salt and freshly ground white pepper 1. Set the oven to 180o 2. Wash and clean the root vege­ tables. Cut them into small pieces and spread on an oven proof dish. Mix in 1 tbsp olive oil and salt. Roast in the oven for approx. 20- 30 minutes until they are soft and golden brown. 3. Mix the root vegetables with the vegetable stock, lemon juice and crème fraiche into a creamy soup. If you wish to, you can strain the soup. 4. Cut the pork into pieces approx. 1x1 cm, fry in a pan until crispy. Drain the fat on kitchen paper. 5. Season the food with salt and freshly ground white pepper. 6. Serve the soup in warmed soup bowls, sprinkle the fried pork and garnish with parsley, with sourdough bread.

The work made me think about my own lifestyle, which at the time was not exactly healthy."   Fredric changed his diet, started training­ regularly and lost 20 kilos in weight. The book has won several awards and was ­declared runner-up as the world's best health cookbook, Gourmand World Cookbooks Awards, 2013. "Those of us who work in the restaurant world have noticed that the customers' knowledge and requirement for good food is increasing. More and more restaurants are focusing on new, healthier food concepts. It is ”simmering” here in Uddevalla too. There are a number of good restaurateurs here who are rethinking things and making major changes. It is good to see."   There is seldom time for Fredric to go out into town with his family to eat. His free

time is spent cycling and training greco­roman wrestling. LOVES WRESTLING AND CYCLING "It is thanks to my 8 year old twins Tilde and Wille that I currently wrestle. They wanted to start wrestling and coming to the club stirred my childhood memories. Several of my relatives were good wrestlers, including Knut Fridell who won Olympic Gold in Berlin in 1936, so I used to hang out here." "I don't compete but I train at Uddevalla Atletklubb a couple of times a week because it is good all round exercise. You could say I am a good training dummy. To start with it was really hard work and I needed to do extra fitness training. So I started road ­cycling and mountain biking, which is a good combi­nation." "I don't do things by halves, so I have

competed in a number of tough cycle races. I have to say that Uddevalla has the best cycling environments in Sweden. The terrain is hilly, there isn't a lot of traffic on the roads and the scenery is fantastically beautiful and varied." WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING TO DO IN UDDEVALLA ON A FREE SUNDAY DURING THE WINTER? "On a good autumn day I get up at 5 am, eat a big bowl of porridge, drink a lot of coffee and then go on a long ride down to Ljungskile, up along the coast road and then on to Munkedal, Rotviksbro and back. If the weather is bad I take the MTB bike and enjoy the terrain of Herrestadsfjäll."

”I want to make a difference to people's daily lives with a cultural experience” Simone's first significant theatre experience was Shakespeare's comedy ”A midsummer night's dream” at Stora teatern in Gothenburg. She was 18 years old, working as a welder at the Uddevalla dock and went on a union theatre bus trip. Her passion for culture was awoken then and there.

12 Uddevalla&DU

Simone Olofsson grew up in Uddevalla and has an impressive list of achievements. She started as a home helper, welder, worked at a coffee factory as well as a sausage factory. She trained as a nurse and worked in the care industry, was a child minder for several years and held several political posts in Uddevalla Municipality, companies and societies between 2006 and 2014.   To that can be added her deep involvement in the cultural world. Among other things, Simone has been chair of Uddevalla Riksteaterförening for many years and is a board member of Regionteater Väst. Since 2011 she has been Operations manager at Folkets Hus in Uddevalla with the ambition of making a difference to the daily lives of the people of Uddevalla.

work at Folkets Hus I can contribute to Uddevalla's cultural offering. We work with everything from graffiti art, local rock bands and breakdance courses to performances of classical music, the Riksteater and live broadcasts of opera from the stage of the Metropolitan Opera in New York." "Almost anything can happen at Folkets Hus. We are aimed at lots of target groups and invest a lot in collaborations with other players, also in environments outside Folkets Hus. For example we are co-arrangers of the Gömda glömda gårdar (Hidden, forgotten courtyards) event, where the gates of the town's beautiful inner courtyards are opened and music and other exciting entertainment is on offer. One of our most important tasks is to contribute to a living town centre."

PASSIONATE ABOUT THEATRE AND DANCE "I have always had a wide cultural interest, even if I am most passionate about theatre and dance," Simone says. "Through my

GARAGE BAND CITY Simone is impressed by Uddevalla's wide range of culture and says that on average there are three cultural activities on offer every day of the year.

Simone recommends Famous artists and local bands play Folkets Hus new intimate stage ”VARDAGSRUMMET” one Thursday evening every month. On 24/11 Staffan Hellstrand will be appearing. Take a break at DAGNYS CAFÉ – inspired by 1950s decor and cookies. Don't miss the exhibitions at BOHUSLÄNS


Walk or drive to GUSTAFSBERG and see the fantastic buildings and environment. Check out the program at L’JAZZ in Ljungskile.

"Uddevalla has an unusually high number of cultural associations, lots of good musicians and the highest proportion of garage bands per head of population in Sweden. The musical range is exceptional for a town our size. I usually suggest that visitors check out the Uddevallakassetten's program, they attract major artists from all over the world."   She gives a long list of cultural experiences available in Uddevalla over the autumn and winter. Everything from Stefan Bergendahl's town walking tours, lunchtime music in Uddevalla church and Regionteater Västs children's theatre and dance performances, to the local history association's lecture evenings and classical music at Bohusläns Museum. ”WEEDING IS MY LIFELINE” Simone has lots of ideas and projects on the go, both at work and in her free time. She has plenty of energy, even if in recent years she has suffered constant pain from arthritis. "My mind doesn't stop working and I find

it easy to get involved in all sorts of things. When it gets too much I have the weeds in the garden as my lifeline. Weeding is a way for me to relax and get peace in my soul. I don't have a big garden but there is always something that needs doing. I have a strict, Victorian-style garden and it is most beautiful when it is cut and well-tended."   Simone is very interested in gardening. In addition to her own, she also tends the garden at the Wessmanska house and a cottage on Bassholmen. She also helps other gardeners with tips and advice on every aspect of gardening. GREY WEATHER SENSUALISM IN UDDEVALLA "Gardening, interior design, photography and cookery are my forms of self-expression, which give me an outlet for my creativity. Reading and travel are also great interests. My husband and I take different journeys to learn more, for example, about Italian cooking and art during the second world war."

With her camera always by her side she often takes pictures of the urban environment. A favourite theme is the cranes in the harbour. "Living in Uddevalla, on a grey overcast day in November, we perhaps don't realise what a beautiful city we have. Walking beside the sea on a day like that is pure grey weather sensualism!"   Her family consisting of husband, two children and a grandchild mean a lot to Simone. "Becoming a grandmother has given life a new dimension. It is my most important job." WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING TO DO IN UDDEVALLA ON A FREE SUNDAY DURING THE WINTER? "If the weather is OK I take my family out to barbecue on Mollön or take a walk on the Strandpromenaden to Gustafsberg. In the event of bad weather, I look for an interesting lecture or art exhibition."

midwinter festival in the name of love and peace

The Midwinter festival at Bohusläns Museum is an exhibition and market all rolled into one. It is arranged in collaboration with Slöjd i Väst and craftsmen from around the county. Here you can view and buy local and sustainable art and craftwork. The idea is that visitors should discover the quality and

personality of the handmade items.   This year's theme is Peace, Love and Unity. The crafts and nature of the exhibition, ­image material and text combined with ­selected objects from the museum's collection will reflect a loving and inclusive world.   Midwinter festival opens on the 26th

­ ovember and runs until the 8th January. N   One tip is to visit the exhibition in ­November so that you don't miss out on any of the beautiful artworks. The objects are for sale, remember. You can find more info at

wine & delicatessen fair for all tastes At the end of January 2017, the popular Vin- & Delikatessmässan (Wine & Deli­ catessen fair) returns to Uddevalla for the third year in a row. This time sophisticated delicacies and drinks will be laid out at Kärranäs restaurant.   Over two days, several food producers from the region will present their locally produced delicacies and a number of West Sweden importers and producers of different drinks will also be present. As a visitor you will have the opportunity to taste and 18 Uddevalla&DU

purchase a wide range of quality products. You can also listen to lectures by experts in different fields. "We want to offer the visitors great combi­ nations of food and drink. It has shown itself to be a successful concept that attracts a lots of Uddevalla residents, as well as visitors from elsewhere", say the organisers Clas Hardebäck of Gastrosof and Marianne Jonsson, sommelier. "On the Friday we have an afterwork themed evening with live music and on the Saturday

the focus is on tastings, appearances on stage and mingling. The exhibitors will be present on both days and the food will be on sale. No one needs to go home hungry!"   The fair is on 27th-28th January 2017. Tickets for both days cost 250 SEK and can be purchased in advance. Free bus travel between Bohusläns Museum and Kärranäs restaurant is included. More information about tickets, opening times etc. is available on the website,

Christmas cheer like it used to be The old fashioned Christmas market is an old, much loved tradition in Uddevalla. On the weekend of the 10-11th December the whole of Kungstorget is transformed into an old fashioned market place. If you really want to experience the feeling of Christmas that is when to come. Leave the Christmas stresses at home and travel a hundred years back in time.

Market stalls are made with wooden boards and canvas roofs and the products for sale have been carefully selected to fit the old fashioned atmosphere. You can buy handicrafts in the form of hand-carved knives, knitted hats and hand painted tomtes. A lot of the items on sale in the square that weekend are edible; home cooked, home baked and home made. As always the Wästsvenska

Tomteorden will be providing Christmas music and there will be dancing around ­ the tree.   The Old fashioned Christmas market is close to the hearts of Uddevalla residents – it has been held for over 30 years! A lot needs to be developed and renewed in our town but just this event should be as it always has been – genuine and real.

acreate thousand lights Christmas cheer in town On 17th November this year's fantastic Christmas light promenade opens in Uddevalla town centre. Uddevalla Energy has created a Christmas lights promenade with several wonderful creations in the town centre. The idea is to spread the Christmas cheer and light in the darkness of daily winter life and at the same time offer advice on safe and energy efficient electricity use. The Christmas light promenade will be lit using modern LED lamps that are 80 percent

more efficient and last 25 times longer than normal incandescent light bulbs.   On the Christmas light promenade you can spread the Christmas cheer to those in need at Christmas. Christmas cheer is not just for receiving but also for giving. Every year Uddevalla Energi and Bohusläningen donate money to Saronhuset in conjunction with the Christmas light promenade and will do so again this year. Uddevalla residents are invited to take part in an online vote

to decide where one of the light installations, a sculpture with four tomtes (Father Christmases), should be placed in the town centre. For each vote cast Uddevalla Energi and Bohusläningen will donate 10 SEK to ­Saronhuset, a charitable foundation that is run by eight parishes in town. They support and help people suffering from social exclusion by serving breakfast and lunch, and organising activities each day, among other things. Uddevalla&DU 19

snow sledge ride full speed at the

Fingers crossed, there will be lots of days below freezing this winter. That is when Uddevalla Idrottssällskap promises to create a winter landscape in Sanders Dalar, just like they did last year. The snow sledge run will again be filled with artificial snow and hundreds of happy adults and children.

22 Uddevalla&DU

Last winter was a major success, with snow canons creating a long toboggan run in Sanders Dalar. This year the snow cannons will be set up in the same place, but the temperature needs to be at least two degrees below freezing before they can be started. This season it will once again be volunteers from Uddevalla Idrottssällskap, UIS, who manage the artificial snow with a contribution from Uddevalla county council. "If we get below zero temperatures for long enough we can recreate the long toboggan run that attracted so many people last winter. However, there will not be ski tracks in the

artificial snow this year. But if there is real snowfall we will, of course, create a track for both traditional cross-country skiing and freestyle cross-country", says Pär Noord at UIS.   Everyone is welcome to the toboggan run in Sanders Dalar. Pär hopes for the same great response as last year. "We want to attract children to play and have fun in the snow. Tobogganing is a good way of creating interest in skiing and other winter sports. In addition, Sanders Dalar is close to town and it is easy for people to get to."

new gym Uddevalla´s

Now you no longer need to be indoors and buy gym membership to have a training session. In the middle of the beautiful natural environment of Bjursjön, close to running paths, a boule ground and bathing area, lies one of Uddevalla's latest gyms with an activity area for children. Together it makes the Hålligångpark (Stay active park).

The outdoor gym is robustly built of wood and has 14 stations. There is an instruction sign showing how to perform the exercise at each station. Some of them are access adapted – including the stations for bench press and sit-ups. The gym is designed by Magnus Pilegård, a personal trainer with a focus on outdoor training.    Beside the gym is the adventure playground, which makes it possible for the whole family to be active. The playground invites them to play and consists of two sections – one for children up to the age of five and one for older children

BJURSJÖ AREA – AN OUTING DESTINATION FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY In addition to the beaches and swimming at Bjursjön, Uddevalla Skidklubb's sports pavilion is also here. It is the starting point for several good running and walking routes, mountain bike tracks, with electrically lit tracks and prepared ski tracks when snow has fallen. The sports pavilion has changing rooms, a sauna and a cafe on Sundays during the winter. There are two fixed barbecue sites for the use of disposable barbecues.

CYCLE OR WALK ALONG THE LELÅNGENBANA There used to be a narrow gauge railway between Uddevalla and Lelången lake in Bengtsfors which had been opened by king Oscar II in 1895. The last trolley bus ran on it in 1964. But the track bed remains and these days it is Uddevalla's most popular exercise and walking route.     The combined cycle and walking path runs from Uddevalla hospital up into the forest, past Bjursjön and Hogsjön to Lane-Ryr. If weather permits, part of the route has prepared ski tracks. Uddevalla&DU 23

Herrestadsfjäll is almost as dear to Uddevalla residents as the sea. A playground for exercisers, walkers, cyclists, fishermen and outdoor types in general. In addition, Herrestadsfjäll offers very varied and occasionally dramatic nature. The impressive and wilderness-like plateau north and north west of Uddevalla has been a popular leisure area since the 1930s. Not least because of the footpaths, huts, windbreaks and other facilities that enthusiasts from the Friluftsfrämjandet have created on the fell. During the winter Uddevalla Idrottssällskap manages the tracks for skiing in the area.   Exercise paths and ski tracks of different lengths depart from the Klämman exercise centre. The Bohusleden stretches from the east across the whole northern section of the fell.

There are lots of fantastic experiences to be had during the cold months of the year. Go with Upplevelsebolaget for a day of ice climbing or long distance skating. If you have never skated or been on natural ice it is a good idea to take their ice course first.   If you prefer to keep things warm and comfortable you can hone your paddling skills on one of Upplevelsebolaget's pool courses. Educational and fun. And wet. Read more at


”goes winter”



Bredfjäll, 160 metres above sea level, is always a few degrees colder with more snow than the community at Ljungskile which lies beneath. Ljungskile Friluftsklubb has its club house on the northern part of Bredfjäll, a perfect starting point for those who want to walk, run, orienteer or ski in the beautiful fell environment. The club ensures that there are walking routes and ski tracks available to everyone. The 2.5 km long electrically lit track is moderately hilly for walking, jogging and during the winter it is prepared as a ski track. Other ski tracks run through old cultural and forestry land.     The Bohusleden passes through the eastern end of the fell. From a look-out tower there is a panoramic view, with Uddevalla bridge in the north west and Halleberg and Hunneberg in the north east.

Challenge the climbing monkey within! Did you climb trees or playground apparatus when you were a kid? Climbing is a natural instinct we have from birth, so why not test your climbing skills again? There is an eleven meter climbing wall in the Rimnershall in Uddevalla that is open for everyone to try under the supervision of Bohusläns Klätterklubb. On Sunday evenings through the autumn, Bohusläns Klätterklubb is offering everyone, big and small, experienced and inexperienced, the chance to try some climbing. All the equipment required such as shoes and harnesses is available to loan. Super­ visors will be there to give advice and other practical help for climbing the eleven meter climbing wall. "We want as many people as possible to ­experience this fantastic sport," says Andreas Henriksson from Bohusläns Klätterklubb. "Climbing is an individual sport and there are no limits. Everyone climbs according to their physical limits and their own conditions. We have had visually impaired people climbing our wall as well as some amputees."

SUCCESS IS MEETING THE CHALLENGE Andreas tells how many first time visitors to the vertical, eleven meter wall react by saying 'I could never climb that'. "Later, when they have climbed to the top, been lowered down and set foot on terra firma again, they always have a huge smile and the great feeling of having mastered a challenge." "Lots of them want to improve and quite soon they want to try more difficult routes and tougher challenges." A FUN THING TO TRY Both the climbing wall and Bohusläns Klätterklubb have been at Rimnershallen since it was built in 2011. Alongside the club's normal training they also run taster sessions for the public and rent out the hall with

instructors for corporate events, hen parties/ bachelor parties and other groups who want to try something different and fun.   The club can arrange the taster sessions because so many club members give up their own time to help. FANTASTIC CLIMBING MOUNTAIN "Climbing indoors on a climbing wall is the first step into the sport for many. With the right training one can then take the step to climbing outdoors, and in Bohuslän we have a lot of fantastic mountains and cliffs that offer great climbing."   As a member of Bohusläns Klätterklubb you can attend climbing meets, members evenings and climbing trips that the club arranges and meet new friends who share the same interest.

Taster sessions at Rimnersvallen are on Sundays, 5pm-7.30pm throughout the autumn. More info about activities and times:
