However, Lindberg was not aware of Eriksson's extraordinary culinary efforts and how the decision to force her to cut back had prompted outrage among students and parents. "It has been claimed that we have been spoiled and that it's about time we do as everyone else," Eriksson said. She insisted, however, that her creative cooking has not added to the municipality's expenses. "I have not had any complaints," she told the paper.
Eriksson added that she sees it as her job to ensure that the pupils are offered several alternatives at meal times. The food on offer does not always suit all pupils, she explained, and therefore she makes sure there are plenty of vegetables to choose from as well as proteins in the form of chicken, shrimp, or beef patties.
From now on, the school's vegetable buffet will be halved in size and Eriksson's handmade loafs will be replaced with store-bought bread. Her traditional Easter and Christmas smörgåsbords may also be under threat.
Parents and pupils alike find the municipality's orders distasteful. Fourth-graders at the school have even launched a petition in protest against the decision to put a lid on Eriksson's passion for cooking.
