London: crudo and pasta at veneta
SaltYard Group, the company behind favourites like Ember Yard and Opera Tavern recently opened a restaurant in the newly redeveloped area of St James’s, just next to Swedish Aquavit actually. Called Veneta it has a… More...
Recipe: cacio e pepe
Cacio e pepe, this heavenly dish consisting only of pasta, pecorino and black pepper (and a little cooking water from the pasta) has always seemed so daunting to make. I have enjoyed it cooked to… More...
London: loved every bite at kricket soho
It feels like almost every day a new fun restaurant opens its doors in Soho. Maybe not quite, but I love how this part of London evolves quicker than the rest. One of the latest… More...
Recipe: chicken bulgogi
This Korean chicken dish has everything I want from a dish; plenty of flavour, seriously tender meat and a little heat. The first time I made it I had it with rice, thinly cut carrots… More...
As proof that time is passing at what feels like the speed of light, here’s a post I meant to publish at the end of the summer last year when I’d just enjoyed my birthday… More...
London: dim sum at grand imperial
Luckily all my friends appreciate good food, but out of them Gaby is definitely my dim sum buddy! Last time we went for dim sum she introduced me to a new restaurant, and one… More...
London: nachos, tacos and meat at temper
When I moved to London almost nine years ago (yikes!) I was a more modest foodie than I am know, partly because the restaurant scene in Malmö at the time was quite limited, especially compared… More...
Recipe: orrechiette with salsiccia
This is my attempt to recreate one of those amazing food memories I have stored in my head. My friend Caroline and I were in Bologna last year and although we couldn’t secure a reservation… More...
Skanör: lunch at stationen
Most restaurants I visit back home are in Malmö, the biggest city in the area I’m from, but in the summer there are lots of smaller places scattered by the coast and in the… More...
Recipe: slow-cooked salmon with fennel, lemon and chilli
Salmon. Probably the most popular fish in Sweden, but not my first choice to be honest. I blame all the baked (over-cooked) salmon fillets when I was at Uni for that. Although I love the… More...
Malmö: dinner (and wine!) at bastard
I know, you’re probably giggling at the headline, but that is the actual name of a restaurant in Malmö. A very nice restaurant in fact. It’s been around for a few years now and is always… More...
Recipe: sloe gin spritz
Happy Valentine’s day, dear readers! It seems like the perfect day to share this sloe gin spritz recipe with you. Don’t we all need a drink on Valentine’s day?! Either to celebrate or commiserate? I made… More...
Malmö: lunch at the new food market
When I was at home in Sweden for Christmas, everybody was talking about the new Saluhall (food market) that opened in Malmö in November. There used to be a food market in the centre of… More...
Recipe: cod loin with lemon, capers, red onions and browned butter
Maybe it’s because of my Scandinavian heritage but I really do like cod. I didn’t use to as a child, but back then my mother used to serve the cod poached *shudders* whereas I like… More...
Copenhagen: four course dinner at uformel
The highlight of our day in Copenhagen was definitely the four course meal with matching wines at Uformel. It was my first time visiting the restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed everyhing from the relaxed atmosphere… More...
Recipe: crostini with mushroom spread
This Finnish-Russian mushroom salad or spread is absolutely delicious. When it was first introduced to me by fellow food blogger Anna, I couldn’t believe it was made from only a few ingredients (fried mushrooms, smetana,… More...
Copenhagen: balthazar champagne bar
After the sushi lunch and some quick shopping for me, it was time to try Denmark’s only champagne bar; Balthazar (to my knowledge not related to the New York and London restaurants). Although located in… More...
Recipe: rice krispie mars bar treats
I find it fitting that I, on Australia Day, am posting the one recipe my Australian friend Debs has has shared with me. The recipe, although not typically Australian (I think) is very good and easy. These… More...
Copenhagen: lunch at sticks ‘n sushi
In between Christmas and New Year my best friend Emma and I had planned a whole day in Copenhagen with her husband and his friend. We took the train across the bridge (yes, that bridge)… More...
Recipe: langos (hungarian fried bread)
This Hungarian speciality of yummy deep-fried bread is interestingly quite popular in Sweden. As a child I came across langos stalls at Festivals and markets and when I was in my early twenties and sailed in… More...
