Cajsa Warg - a foodie nirvana

Today, I had a few minutes to try and track down a special sort of rye that I need for trying out a new bread recipe. I decided to try a new store that I had heard about - Cajsa Warg. All I knew was that it supposedly was really well stocked and had a lot of hard-to-find items.

I stepped in. And nearly fainted. It was so wonderful. The place has an old grocery store feel, with wooden shelving filled with tons of exciting food products. They had fresh produce, too, and interesting ready-for-dinner things like hand-filled pasta and ready-seasoned meat. In addition to this, they do catering, and they have a kitchen in the middle of the store. I felt like I wanted to stay forever, but I only had a few minutes.

The rye? No, they didn't have any - but the owner (or one of the co-owners, I think) took my e-mail address and said she'd check with her suppliers. That's customer service! And I couldn't help mentioning this blog, so she got the url. Hope she'll come visit!

I would love to work in a place like that. Just imagine, spending hours in a wonderful place like that - every day. I felt like the only place I'd be more comfortable in is my own home. (And that's debatable, at times.) I wonder if they'll be hiring any time soon? I'll certainly keep my eyes open! Ahh.. *daydreaming*

I agree with you. It is a lovely store both if you are in a hurry or want to take your time cooking with care...

Och jag bor precis i närheten och handlar där alltför sällan. Problemet är att oavsett om jag bara ska handla mjölk eller en snabb middag lämnar jag aldrig butiken utan att vara ca 250 kronor fattigare. Aldrig!

We passed this store one night last winter when we were on our way to Vita bergen to see a musical (Dracula). I looked through the windows and we decided to go there some day. But then we forgot about it and now I don't visit Stockholm so often as Fredrik has moved home again. But I really hope that I will be able to visit Cajsa Warg next time I'll be in Stockholm.

I've only been to CW a couple of times. I loved it, but they didn't have all the things we needed. I feel the same way about working there though. I allso dream about working in all the foodstands in Hötorgshallen. I wonder if you could take a year off and work one month in each stand... Just to be near all that good food every day...
