Cinnamon Buns are my unbeatable favourite. On October 4th, the swedes celebrate the Cinnamon bun Day and so do I. It´s a must and if I had to choose a single pastry, it would be cinnamon bun . I would take it to a desert island and I would certainly order a cinnamon bun as my last meal.
Sometimes it happens – you ‘re in the right place at the right time . So it was for Nordic Street Food and The Malmo Festival 2013 ! I am humbly taken by surprise , happy and ” chocked and sunned .” What a success!
ummer and Matjessill – Pickled Herring – go together like nothing else. It´s for me, the ultimate summer taste. I love the spicy fish and getting more and more fond of each year that passes.
Today is the most beautiful day up here in Sweden! Midsummer! The longest day of the year. It´s an old tratition and we spend it with our families and friends, eating pickled herring, new potatoes, dill, sour cream, strawberries and celebrate summer by dancing , drinking and laughing.
I’m not particularly afraid of anything … except for baking. It’s always a nervous challenge for me and my partner always finds something else to do, as far away from the kitchen as possible, when I’m mixing batters and doughs and try to bake some yummy pastries.
We have several large pine trees at the cottage. High as skyscrapers, and with many years behind them. In spring down here in the southern part of Sweden where I live, all new green shoots are starting to break out.
As all over the world up here in Scandinavia, we have weeds. They are stubborn as sin and make your otherwise lovely garden life into a small hell. With its long roots and the ability to spread like … weed, I and a lot of gardeners with me, have a constant battle against the pesky leaves, but why not take them into the kitchen instead?
Spring has been slow up here in the North, and as all Scandinavians do, we wait eagerly to take out the grill. I took out the grill in January so I do not care so much about, whether it is spring, summer, autumn or winter. I like to barbecue year round!
How to make a truly Nordic fish soup? I wanted to make a Nordic fish soup for a catering event and started thinking. A classic seafood soup for me is indeed a French bouillabaisse with a aioli, but it doesn´t sound very Nordic.
Street Food is hot right now, and above all there is talk about Nordic Street Food. That means Nordic food that you can buy “on the town” out of a food truck or a “hole in the wall”. Fast food with Nordic roots and finesse.
