In this paper we reflect on the nature and affects of recipe(s) for community engagement activities used by Swedish kommuns (local governments). From interviews at kommuns in 2007 and 2008 it does not appear to be anything remotely close to one recipe for community engagement - we find a smorgasbord of interesting and tempting recipes. Each initiative has a very different form and substance. This variation is not necessarily as a result of different levels of resourcing or varying amounts of expertise in a relatively new field, but occurs since each kommun has a fundamentally different set of objectives for the engagement project.
