5, So finally to my question. I know England isn´t Sweden, but do you think I can trust my original source of sugar not coming to Sweden until the mid 17th Century?

4, A quick google search shows that sugar came to England during the crusades and then became more popular in the 1750's. There is also a mention of Columbus and sugar cane in the Caribbean in 1493.

3, The source I have is as far as I know solid. But last night I watched an episode of "The Spanish Princess" (Granted it's very fictionalized and they state that several things have been changed.) They ate sugar in the royal household in 1502 in England.

2, The Swedish word for pastry chef is Sugar Baker. Sugar was only for the very wealthy and noble and 1693 there were five Sugar Bakers who complained that sugar was way too expensive.

1, I´m confused. From my own research I've learned that sugar arrived in Sweden in the 1600. Our first pastry chef, Jöran Christoffersson came to Stockholm in 1644.

Thank you. It was. There was a lot I didn't know, especially about the attitudes and beliefs of people during these times.
